GIGS APLENTY

Valley View Seniors Community Tea, at Laurier Heights Community League, Thursday, June 8, 3:00-4:00 P. M. 14405 82 Avenue

Playlist: Vintage tunes, plus O Canada.
Take a look at Repertoire Lists 12, 13, and 14 for an idea.

Ukrainian Heritage Village, 2 Sundays, June 25, 2-2:30 and September 10, 2-3:30.  East of Edmonton

We’ve been invited to return again this summer by our friends at the Ukrainian Heritage Village. Last summer’s performance was on a cold and rainy day, but the happy people and hot borscht kept us smiling! June’s performance is for Vintage Auto Day, so there will be a nice crowd of motor fans.

Fort Edmonton Park, 7000 143 Street, Edmonton. Sunday, July 30, 1:00-3:00

We hope to be asked back to Fort Edmonton again this summer. Last year (2016) we had several excellent days in the park traveling through time and playing repertoire from the appropriate era. Also, we had ice cream. You can’t beat that. Repertoire Lists 12, 13, and 14

Seba Beach Farmer’s Market, 3 Saturdays, June 17, July 8, and August 12. 10:00-noon. Seba Beach is about 45 minutes west of Edmonton on Highway 16.

We had a great time last summer visiting Seba Beach and playing at the market. Join us again this year! We are looking at three Saturdays this summer, one each in June, July, and August. We usually meet for a potluck lunch and some social music afterward — sign up for more details.

Edmonton Valley Zoo, 13315 Buena Vista Road & 87th Avenue, Edmonton
2 Tuesdays, July 25 and August 22, 5:00-7:00 P. M.

This place is full of fierce animals and also a capybara! Come play some zoo songs with us. Or just come and eat popsicles near us and listen.


MASS UPRISING

John Janzen Compost Deck!
7000 143 St NW, Edmonton (Same parking lot as Fort Edmonton)
Sunday, June 11 (Time 1:30-3:30 P. M.)

It sounds gross, but it’s NOT. It is a gorgeous little patio suitable for a garden wedding, or a mass ukulele uprising of the outdoor summer sort!
Several ukulele circles will bring five songs each and come together to perform the whole list. Want to get involved? Get your circle leader to contact us! And check here on our JJNC event page for more details.
