It’s Official!! Award-Winning Ukearists!!

May 19, 2010

Just back from the Edinburgh Folk Club Annual Song Writing Competition where our very own Yvonne, David, Jane and Jim’s song The Kist was performed for a discerning panel of judges and audience.

Both the official Judges and the audience voted The Kist 2nd place!

Well done!!

(Yvonne even mentioned the Monday Ukearist in the introduction to the song and the compere has dubbed us the Ukulele Orchestra of Leith! Make of that what you will!)

And here’s a video of the performance:

    Thanks, Zoe. We were the only ukes there. Mostly it was acoustic guitars, a couple of unaccompanied singers, and one guy had an electric piano though his chum had a guitar. So we had something a bit different to offer which was nice!

    Hmmm, appears that it has indeed been deleted. I hope it comes back! It certainly was working earlier.

    Message says “This video has been removed by the user”. Is it fibbing or fussing?
