What an end to a fantastic 2015?!

We’ve had an absolutely wonderful end to our gigging year… a huge thank you to everyone who came to play at the gigs, those who came to support us and those who invited us. I love that through RUG we have made so many friends, been able to support some great charities and enjoyed many fun times together. Here are just a few of the highlights from this last week…

Great Northern Ukulele Festival
I had a great time at GNUF this year – so inspiring to hear ukulele acts from all over the world. It was a really well organised and interesting festival. I can’t wait for next year!

Disability Rocks!
A big thank you to everyone who came to support this event – we had a really good time! The festival was packed with loads of different activities and musical acts. We played a great set and it was lovely to be joined by our friends from Sunshine and Smiles as they signed a couple of songs for us. I hope we are invited back again next year! 🙂

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…
