29 May – Another gig for your diary!!

Was perusing Victoria Vox’s website – as one does ( – and amongst her tour dates is one you’re going to want to write in your diary!

Saturday, 29 May at the Leith Folk Club


Victoria does a tremendous gig, featuring her own tunes with ukulele accompaniment (of course!) and a mean mouth trumpet. Honestly, there’s nothing like getting to hear Victoria live.

Also on the bill is Brigid Kaelin.

I hadn’t heard of Brigid, but according to her website (, Brigid is plucky and plays a variety of instruments, including accordion and musical saw in an “americana” stylee. If she’s anywhere near as entertaining as Victoria, it’s going to be one spectacular evening.

Be there or be missing out – big time!

Hi all

Zoe here,  my first post – whoop whoop

Festival season is on it’s way,  I just got sent an email to a little one day uke festival that is being organised and thought I’d pass it on to anyone who is interested.  I can’t go as that weekend I’ll be celebrating my body ageing faster than my mind.

see you later

Chords and tab site found by Tim

March 12, 2010 2 comments

Ukearist uker Tim has passed on the details of a natty little site for uke chords and tabs – take a look here:

It has chords and melody lines on the same tab which would be really great to work on together at the Ukearist. If anyone has suggestions for some that we might like to try then feel free to print off a few copies or let me know and I’ll do the same and bring them along on a Monday
