Diary for Feb – March

by


Aloha everyone! Thank you to everyone who came and joined the fun on Australia Day – and welcome to new faces who were given ukes for Christmas, or made a New Year’s resolution to learn to play (or both). There are photos here.

Our New Year’s resolutions are to give members more notice about songs we’ll practice, some more skills, and something fun for the kids. I think we’ve got most of that here, and if you enjoy it, we can keep it up.  Please let us know if you like this, and anything else we ought do/sing/include/learn/practise.

You can find lyrics, chords and chord charts for all these songs on Richard G’s songbook. And all sessions are at 7pm at the Gov unless otherwise stated!

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you’d like more info – or if you spot any ukulele shows in the Fringe or Festival that we should all know about.

2 Feb   Beginners and novices with Richard Tonkin
9 Feb   Regular session of old songs and new.
Group songs include Honolulu Rock-a Roll-a and Under the Boardwalk
Beginners – Sloop John B and Jamaica Farewell (both in C, same four chords)
Flowers on the Wall (for anyone who’s never done it or wants to practice it)
Ramones songs with Andrew B.
Sunday 14 Feb *new* Family Uke Session 1-3pm at the Gov. Bring the kids and their ukes. There’ll be a sausage sizzle in the courtyard. If it’s a lot of fun, we might make it a monthly session for families with under 16s, on the second Sunday of the month. Please invite anyone you know who’ll enjoy it! And let us know if you need a loan uke.
