Happy 2016 everyone!

I have been busy preparing new songs for a new year of ukulele good times! I am really looking forward to out first session back at The New Highwood on Wednesday 13th January from 8pm. I have taken song suggestions from the group as well as adding in a few feel-good classics to get us through the remaining dark nights of winter. Song will be added shortly to the SONG SHEETS page. I hope you can make it to the first session back!

AND WE ALREADY HAVE GIGS COMING IN – be sure to keep checking the GIGS page!

The first one is very short notice – and we are only performing 2 songs (+ a few more while people mingle!)

It is for AGE UK’s 40th Anniversary and I thought it was an excellent opportunity to play to an audience who might not yet know how awesome the ukulele is (and how awesome we are!) – please find the set list and all the details attached.

If you would like to come and won’t be at the session next week please let me know you’re intending on coming.

It was so cool to have the group sing a song for me and Richard… I loved the re-working of Rockin All Over The World! Thank you everybody 🙂 it made my whole week 🙂
