ABOUT US

MISSION STATEMENT

With the resurgence of the popularity of the small but powerful Ukulele, a few intrepid players have gone looking for a place to play and learn with other like minded strummers. No opportunity was to be found in the Edmonton Area so we have created one. It will henceforth be known as …

THE EDMONTON UKULELE CIRCLE

WHY?

We exist to provide a comfortable and informal place for Ukulele enthusiasts of every level of ability to meet once each month to share a love of making music with the Ukulele.   Gary Myers, a professional musician and teacher, leads us during our jams.

WHERE?

Bogani Cafe (great coffee, great food)

2023 111th Street, Edmonton

WHEN?

Third Sunday of every month

2:30 PM to 4:00 PM

We play songs from Jim Beloff ‘s “Daily Ukulele Song Book” and the “Daily Ukulele Leap Year Edition”.  Monthly selections will be posted on this blog – click on SONG LIST

August Circle 2014

Sorry but there will not be a Circle in August. The cafe will be undergoing renovations. We will be back the third Sunday in September. For the the next year we have decided to give the yellow book a rest and play from the Daily Ukulele Leap Year Edition or the Blue Beloff book. Books will be available at the Circle.  See you in September and happy strumming!

More Ukulele Fun

We are delighted to report that the Ukulele community in Edmonton is growing! Two other Ukulele circles now exist in Edmonton.

During the summer months of July and August Michael Wraith one of our Bogani friends, leads a group play at the Central Lions Senior Centre at 11113 0 113 Street. It costs $1.00 for a drop in during July and August. They play from the same yellow Beloff book as we use at Boganis. It runs every Monday from 9 Am to 12. Likely it will continue into the fall and winter season. For more details email thewraith man@msn.com. This is lots of fun.

Another circle is beginning in the West end. Heather Miller has organized a circle at the West End Senior Centre, 9629 – 176 St. They meet the last Thursday of the month between 2 to 3:30. It costs $2.00 for a drop in and membership in the West End Senior Centre is encouraged. They meet in the Harry Farmer room. They also play from the yellow Beloff book. Heather is a music teacher in the west end. Again lots of fun!

If you know of other circles in the Edmonton area please let us know.  thanks

Don’t forget to check out Beth Portman’s show at the 2014 Fringe. For details go to her website.
