Over the last few weeks we have enjoyed welcoming visitors to our Tuesday night Jam sessions. Rye has lots of festivals and lots of people come to the area on holiday so it is great when fellow ukulele players look us up. Recently Jeremy from Hanwell Ukulele Group came and played with us, a good time was had by all as usual and we hope that next time he is down this way he makes sure he is here on a Tuesday so he can join us again.
Here he is with a Rye Ukulele Festival 2016 badge, good man!
Pam, Graham and Justine, three of our members, are just back from the Big Busk at the Ukulele Festival of Great Britain in Imperial Gardens, Cheltenham.
“ We met over 1,000 uke players from all over the world to play from this years songbook. It was a wonderful weekend, with lots of jamming and a chance to pick up some new skills at the various workshops. We also watched an amazing variety of well-known performers from around the globe including The Mother Ukers, Craig Chee, Tomoko Sato, the phenomenal Taimane and the hilarious Hot Potato Syncopators. There was a lot of Haloah-ing going on!”
