MASS UPRISING

World Ukulele Day  February 2, 2017, West Edmonton Mall.

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!

Printable posters and promo cards here!

It’s free! No cost to you.

WHEN?     February 2, 2017,  6:30 – 8:30 P. M. We’ll tune up at 6:15.

WHERE?   Newcap Radio Stage, Main Floor Phase 4, (near Entrance 56 by HMV) at West Edmonton Mall.

 

February 2, 2017 at West Edmonton Mall


WHAT’S THE PLAN?

Here’s what will go down! Each circle will take turns leading the whole group in performing the songs they have selected. There will also be a couple of performance slots available for players who have a prepared performance that isn’t a playalong. And the group will be invited to play Pachelbel’s Canon and Four Strong Winds all together. (Music will be supplied. See below to download.)

We will supply an MC, lyrics sheets for singers, chord charts for baritone players, a playlist handout, Pachelbel’s Canon, Four Strong Winds, tables, chairs, a small stage and amplification for the song leader. There will also be people there to share their songbooks if you don’t have the music.

You bring your ukulele, and anybody who wants to sing along.

 


GROUP PLAYLISTS

We’ll also be playing two pieces all together. You can download them here:

Pachelbel’s Canon Part 1 (For everyone) Baritones, take the tenor tab and play it on your E string (your highest tuned string)

Pachelbel’s Canon Part 2 (Soprano, Concert, and Tenor) This tab is not transposed for baritone.

Four Strong Winds for Soprano, Concert, and Tenor

Four Strong Winds for Baritone

(If you don’t know what kind of ukulele you have, I bet you $17.95 you shouldn’t download the baritone chart…)
