Plans are now well underway for the Rye Ukulele Festival and we have had some very positive feedback from the groups we have contacted. If you hover over the Festival page you will find options to see the list of performers so far and hopefully very shortly the ‘all-together’ strum songs and chords.
Don’t forget to check out our own song book page for all the new numbers Ian has produced this week.
A belated happy new year to all. Some of us carried on meeting right through the holidays and others were stricken down by the seasonal sickness, but hopefully we will be back to full strength by tonight.
So far we have two definite dates for our diary. On Tuesday 24th February we will be supporting the Rye Bay Scallop Week by playing at the Queens Head from 7.30pm. Jonathan will provide some tasty nibbles and apart from our usual favourites we will also be performing some scallop, fish and seaside themed songs.
Rye Ukulele Festival
Another important date for your diary is Sunday 24th May when we are planning the first ever Rye Ukulele Festival. This will take place at the Cinque Ports pub in Cinque Ports Street. We are planning to start at around 12.30pm and invite other local Uke groups to join us. There will also be a joint strum at the end. A new webpage for the festival should be up and running today so that we can keep you informed.
