Ukulele – November & December meetings

Last month, we strummed and sang our way through some Country songs (‘Country’ songs are typified by cracking good tunes and sad lyrics).  We also stepped up to the mark, and Strictly Ukuleles – our performing cohort – gave two public performances, which were enthusiastically received.  Yes, we’ve been asked back!  Thanks due to Hugh, […]
