AUAS on tour


In case you haven’t heard, a group of AUAS members attended the Port Lincoln Uke Muster on the weekend 23-24 July 2011. Our Port Lincoln comrades invited us over to run some classes and workshops and build on the work that they have been doing at the Cellar Folk Club. This is what we did:

Saturday morning – workshops at Trinity Haven Camp Site, near Tumby Bay, covering different strum patterns; blues; introduction to finger picking.

Saturday afternoon – workshops open to all at the Arteyrea hall in Port Lincoln, including a beginners workshop; ukulele speed dating to learn 4 easy songs in 1 hour; playing chords up the neck. It was great to have participants ranging in age from 5 to 75, with a mixture of absolute beginners, guitar converts and experienced ukulele players.

On Saturday evening we all went to the Ukulele Extravaganza at the Port Lincoln Race Course where we were treated to some wonderful performances from the musicians from the House of Creative Learning and the Port Lincoln ukulele group. AUAS members also played a set and had a lot of fun.

Thanks to all our Port Lincoln, Whyalla, Port Augusta and Eyre Peninsula friends who came along and made it a great experience for everyone!
