Put on your plinking caps.
Over the summer, we’ll have several opportunities to go out and perform as a group. (Up to date information will always be posted in the Gigs section of the Events page.) We’ve been working on repertoire lists to give us more range and selection for performances.
So here is an opportunity for you to have some input! Click through for more.
We’ll be meeting at our regular time, 2:00 – 4:30 at Bogani Cafe. (playlist starts at 2:30, warmup and wander-in at 2)
We’ll be running through some Repertoire Lists (#7 and maybe some from #5). You will need both your BLUE and YELLOW books. We will also have some time for Player’s Choice, and to pick some new songs to practice.
You can click Next Playlist at the top of the page.
We had a good time!
There were 20 or so players throughout the morning. We were pleased to welcome a visitor from the Saskatoon Ukulele Circle, David, who was in town for the Jake Shimabukuro show and stuck around to come play!
We had a nice group photo taken — I’ll put it up when I receive it. WE LOOK SO CLASSY, Y’ALL.
It is safe and quietly humidifying a small area of my music bag. Owner can claim at Bogani or next time at Blackbird.
Saturday, March 11th
The Circle will meet for our City Market gig from 9-12 on Saturday, March 11 at the Edmonton City Hall, 1 Sir Winston Churchill Square.
Any ukulele player is welcome to join us to perform with the group at this engagement. You don’t have to stay for the whole three hours in order to participate. Chairs are provided, bring your own stand.
