Here is the set list for the songs we will be performing on 22nd March at the Sunshine and Smiles gig for National Down Syndrome Awareness Day.

We will be covering these songs over the next two weeks so if you want to dig them out of our back catalogue to bring to the session that would be cool! Here are some of the songs we haven’t played for a while…

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!

A New Year and New Songs!

Oh it’s so good to be back! And there’s nothing quite like a load of new songs to get us excited for another year of ukulele fun!

The gigs are already coming in as we go into 2015. People are spreading the good news about RUG, which just goes to show that all the effort and hard work you all put in on a Wednesday night is well and truly noticed!

In our first session of the year, we welcomed some brand new faces to the group and welcomed back a few who haven’t been for a while. Everyone is welcome! There is always a space for you and your uke on a Wednesday evening!

I’ve been taking requests for songs over the Christmas holidays. When I’m thinking of new songs to do I always try to think how a new player might feel about the song as well as those who have been playing a while. I hope you will enjoy the all the songs as well as the challenges some may bring.

Here’s what we got up to this week…
