Beginners uke workshop this Saturday morning in Bendigo – Blues uke workshop in Guildford in the afternoon followed by AJ & the Outright Lies

Hi Folks, Mark Jackson is holding Beginners workshop this Saturday. Here’s what he has to say for himself

Hey Bendigo friends. Would you kindly share this event? I’m running a Beginners Ukulele Workshop next Saturday at Muso’s Stuff – Bendigo. I’m coming down from Newcastle for Laurie‘s 60th. Looking forward to hanging at The Good Loaf Sourdough Bakery & Cafe. Thanks to Peter for helping to coordinate things (and for this piccie from donkey’s years ago – look closely in the middle, underneath the pink ukulele).

I’m still on about community. It’s what I learned most about living in Bendigo. The uke is such a superb way to create and sustain community. It’s all about the music and coming together to enjoy making it.

…and here’s the link to the event…

3.30pm if you know anyone who wants to go to the Blues Uke workshop and 7pm Alawishus Jones & the Outright Lies at the Guildford pub

Blues Ukulele workshop – Guildford

Hi Folks, I’m conducting a blues uke workshop at the Guildford pub in August. It aimed at beginners(that can play a few chords) to intermediate
Please pass the info on to anyone in the area that you think may be interested
Thanks Pete

………+ there’s a band on afterwards

Corker orchestra – come and try night

Hi Folks a message from ‘Lafayette’ Bernadette – could you please pass on to fellow ukers an invitation to come over to Castlemaine for the Corker Community Orchestra Come n Try night.

Bring Ukes or any other instrument you play; music scores and supper provided.

6pm this Monday night at Castlemaine South PS – cnr of Moscript and Urquhart St.

It’s a lot of fun!

Starting back dates for uke

Hi Folks, I hope you all had a good break

Uke starts again on Tuesday the 6th for the UJJs and Wednesday 7th at the Old Church

Good news is prices are the same. A slight change to make it easier for those who like to participate in both groups – the cycle begins as normal on the 6th for the UJJs ($100 due) but  begins 1/2 way through the cycle on the 7th for the Wed night group ($50 due). Some people might prefer to $100 every 5 weeks instead and come both nights. Talk to me if you want to do this

….or $15 per session casual as usual
