Uke Workshop Opportunity

May 31, 2014 1 comment

Apologies for the delay in posting this. I’ve had an email from Zahra Lowzley who is planning a workshop/performance tour of the UK over the coming months at various club venues and wants to know if we’d be interested in setting something up. In our case a workshop would be a possibility. You can check out a recent performance here

We can have a chat on Monday, and/or let me know your thoughts by leaving a comment or via the contact form.
