Uke Singing Workshop! – this coming Monday

August 18, 2009 1 comment

Come along next Monday, 24 August.

Bring your uke! Bring your voice!

Take part in the first ever Ukearist Ukulele Singing Workshop.

The fabulous Penny Stone will be at the Mackenzie School of English to guide the warbling and enjoy our strumming. Penny is an experienced music teacher and workshop leader, keen to help us explore our sound-making potential.

Whether you’re a Bing Crosby wannabe or an aspiring rock god (or goddess), come along and find your remarkable voice!

Strumming is from 7, with singing from 7.30 to 9.30. (Post-singing strumming optional.)

Cost will be reasonable – the more warblers who attend, the lower the rate slides down the (musical) scale. (We’re hoping to make it around the £5 mark.)

As Penny would say, “Get in!”

Shane’s last ukearist tonight!

A quick reminder that it’s Shane’s last ukearist tonight before he leaves Edinburgh bound for his Antipodean homeland. So if you want to see him for one last strum and rousing chorus of ‘Like A Prayer’ tonight would be the night to come!

Hi all, you’ll find a few more songsheets uploaded to the songbooks section; mostly new tunes we’re trying to work on for the Troon gig. Some of those songs can be found on Richard G’s excellent ukulele site, some are contained in a chordie songbook I’ve set up. Enjoy!

Anyone interested in a singing workshop?

August 7, 2009 2 comments

Margaret has a friend who is a singing teacher and a few of us have expressed an interest in getting her in to do a group singing workshop outwith the ukearist nights. Before we confirm or arrange anything we’d like to gauge how much interest there might be in these. There would be a cost but I expect it to be fairly minimal if there’s enough of us.

If you could send me an email or reply to this post if you’re interested in the workshop and we’ll take it from there.

For the record my name will be the first on the list if we do go ahead with the workshop, probably much to the delight of some of you!
