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
