EVENT: JOHN JANZEN in JUNE Come Play With Us!

It might sprinkle, but we’ll have a roof!

EVENT  Saturday, June 2, 2018, 1:30 – 3:30.

WHERE?   John Janzen Nature Centre Compost Deck, 7000 143 St NW, Edmonton (Same parking lot as Fort Edmonton).

WHO?     Everyone is welcome. Players from groups all over the province are invited. Bring your friends and family! Make them sing!

HOW?     Format change for this year: instead of pre-chosen song lists, we’ll be playing songs from the Beloff Daily Ukulele / Daily Ukulele Leap Year books, chosen on the spot (Player’s Choice, circle style) and the mass of ukulele players will play them together. You don’t need to be in a group to come and play!

It’s free! No cost to you.

MORE INFO?     See the John Janzen Centre event page here on our site for more, including a list of some of our sweet door prizes.

TWO BANDS NEEDED – UP TO 24 PLAYERS TOTAL

The Circle will meet for our June Ukrainian Cultural Village gig from 1-3 on Sunday, June 25 at the Ukrainian Cultural Village, Highway 16, east of Edmonton, just east of Elk Island National Park. RAIN OR SHINE, my dears. It’s vintage vehicle day! We encourage carpooling/ridesharing to the location. Please allow yourself an hour of travel time from the city to get there.

Any circle member is welcome to sign up to perform with the group at this engagement. Chairs are provided, bring your own stand and books, or arrange to share.

There are two performance stages, one in the courtyard (#68 on the park map, same place as last year if you played) and one on the flatbed stage in the vehicle exhibit area (unknown exact location, but pretty obvious once we arrive). We are fielding two groups of players, one for each stage, as the performances will overlap. So yes, two bands. Players wishing to accommodate physical access requirements will probably prefer the courtyard side.

COURTYARD:  1:30 – 2:30    FLATBED STAGE:  2 – 3.

PLEASE ARRIVE BY 1:00 PM TO ALLOW FOR STAGE TIME CHANGES.

We’ll be playing songs selected from our repertoire lists (click to see them) and probably working with lists 12, 13, and 14, as well as other vintage (pre-1935) tunes.
