Cancelled: MAY 21 BOGANI & MAY 22 BLACKBIRD

Sunday, May 21 (Bogani Cafe Circle) and Monday, May 22 (Cafe Blackbird Circle) are both cancelled due to the Victoria Day long weekend.

The universe aligned in a rare way to cause 3rd Sunday (Bogani) and 4th Monday (Blackbird) to occur on the same weekend. Also, it’s the long weekend. There was talk of adapting the time to accommodate our host cafes, and/or playing a possibly very-low-attendance circle, but it was decided that it would be best to leave the holiday alone.

It’s a long time to go without, especially for Bogani circle folk, so go forth and strum! Drink lemonade and relax in the sun.

See you in June! Would anyone like to meet in early June to rehearse some of the John Janzen songs? (Tentative schedule: June 1, the library by Westmount.)

JOHN JANZEN EVENT Final Songlists

As promised, here are the song lists.

EVENT  Sunday, June 11, 2017, 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.

HOW?     Each group invited selects five songs from the Beloff Daily Ukulele / Daily Ukulele Leap Year books, and the mass of ukulele players will play them together. You don’t need to be in a group to come and play!
