The fortnightly “Ukuleles of the Third Age” sessions are going really well with over 30 members, averaging 25 attending each session. We have enormous fun playing & singing all types of music (rock’n’roll being particularly popular), plus being a fun social occasion, which is evident from all the chatting during the 20 minute tea/ coffee break. In 4 years we’ve been fortunate enough to be invited to do well over 30 gigs (performances), mainly at Day Centres, Nursing Homes, Hospital, etc, & recently ventured further afield to Cranleigh, where we’ve been invited again to perform. Usually 9 – 14 join me on these jolly occasions.
The ukulele is a wonderful little instrument & a delight to play, & it’s really not difficult to learn the basics. We have a bass ukulele player, a percussionist & a guitarist, & almost any instrument is welcome – just let me know if you’re interested.
