GIGS NOW AND THEN
Check out our giant heap of summer gigs!
Players: keep in mind these are outdoor events. Sometimes we get a canopy. We usually get chairs. Sometimes they give us water. SOMETIMES THEY GIVE US FOOD. Bring a hat, sunglasses, and something to keep your music from blowing away.
We’ll post reminders closer to the dates, and make sure everyone has directions and playlists.

Here’s everything listed by venue, with addresses. Some events may be out of town. They are totally worth the drive, let me tell you.

Let’s get together and help make Calgary’s first UKE FEST (June 23-24 2018, all weekend) a success!

Running a festival, especially a brand new one, is a lot of hard work and takes great enthusiasm and persistence. There’s a huge (but less centralized) quantity of ukulele folk out there in Southern Alberta, putting together what looks like a great weekend. Visit the Calgary Uke Fest site for details.


“Great line up of International and Local Instructors”
If you missed Mark and Jane’s Ukestra workshop last year, here’s your opportunity to give it a whack. We had fun!
