Aloha, strummers of Cool Hand Ukes…and Happy New Year to you all.
We last met on 30th December and worked our way through some old favourites as well as 6-7 new songs. Martin kindly brought copies for everyone and is going to add most of those songs to Book 5. Thanks Martin.
We next meet on 13th December. If anyone is in contact with Vic please let him know as we missed him and his melodeon, and he may not have details of our meeting cycle as he does not use the internet.
There are lots of forthcoming performances and dates, all of which will be on the website calendar soon (if not already). But in summary :
20th January – Big Mass Jam with our Lewkulele friends at the Con Club in Lewes. More details soon.
28th May – playing at the Sussex Ukulele Festival in Peasmarsh. More details when known.
3rd July – playing at the Rye Ukulele Festival.
9th July – playing at the Uckfield Festival (though Abi and I will be at Lewes Live all weekend and unable to join you).
I look forward to seeing you all on 13th January for our first session of 2016. I have a few ideas for new songs but will discuss them with you when we meet to decide which, if any, we should try.
And I am trying to get rid of one or two ukes (to make space for another of course) and would like to offer a Brunswick Blond Maple Concert Ukulele for sale. This is in very good condition, has new Nylgut strings, and normally retails for £55-60. I am happy to accept £20 for a good home. It is a little beauty – have a look at it here:
I will bring it along on the 13th.
Love and peace to you all.
