Not on Sunday, April 30 as originally announced, this is on Sunday, April 23.
The Circle will meet to talk about music from 2-4 on Sunday, April 23 at the Woodcroft Library, 13420 114 Avenue. Will we play a bit of music? Yeah, maybe!
We’re gathering to discuss music and strategy for our summer fun events. The Woodcroft Library is just a bit north of Westmount Mall.
Among other things, we’ll be checking out some of the Car Songs suggested for our Vintage Auto gig, and era-appropriate tunes for Fort Edmonton. I’ve got a list of Zoo Tunes too, if you like!
(Read on to leave a comment with your own suggestion.)
Monday, March 27th
The Circle will meet at our regular time from 6:30 to 8:30. We’ll be running through a repertoire list, being #5 and selections from #6 (read on) and discussing tunes we’ll add to our regular rotation. Of course, we’ll do Player’s Choice song selections, too.
(Read on for the repertoire list, or to leave a comment with your song choice!)
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.
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.
We’ll be playing songs selected from our repertoire lists (click to see them) and picking a couple of extras from the books. We hope to have it work out just like a long circle meeting — with the flexibility to suggest songs and play them.
