A BIG HUGE thank you to all of you who cam to play at Chapel Allerton School Diner Food Festival and St Peter’s Church Fayre.

Manitoba Hal led an interesting theory based workshop on transposing songs into different keys. It’s the first time i understood the Circle of Fifths!

His performance was captivating – I love his use of loops and the double necked ukulele to add texture and depth to his playing. His new album “Dancing in the Moonlight” is available from his website

See you soon for more strumming fun….!

New Songs February-March 2015

We’ve had a busy old few weeks playing lots of songs together and playing a gig last week. A big thank you to all of you who came out to play for the RVS AGM – we had a great time and the audience really enjoyed it. They even sang along and it was lovely to play some new songs too.

In our last session we started working on some new songs… if you missed the session, here are the songs we did!
