ABOUT OUO

Welcome to the Official Otley Ukulele Orchestra Blog! We have been playing together since 14th May 2012.

We meet every Monday night at The Woolpack Music and Arts Studios, 14 Bondgate, Otley, LS21 3AB. We do not meet during August and have some weeks off around Easter and Christmas. Please check our Facebook or Twitter for news or email me jen@bighooha.co.uk

SESSION 1 7pm-8pm is a fun sing-a-long session suitable for all abilities. (£5)

SESSION 2 8pm-9pm is more performance based, where we spend longer looking at more detailed arrangements, often with 2 or 3 parts for the ukulele. (£5)

Price for both sessions £6

People of all abilities are welcome to attend either (or both!) sessions. Beginners are welcome and we can lend you a uke for your first session.

Private tuition and beginners courses available – please get in touch jen@bighooha.co.uk

Happy playing!

  3. Terry, here. Experimenting with wordpress as part of a uni workshop on ‘Alternate Reality’. Great fun. Would you mind ‘liking’ my page, please? Cheers. See you soon.

    This probably says a lot really, but, tell me about your bass player and what instrument he’s playing.

    • Hey Richard, thanks for your comment. Our bass player (Paul) plays either an electro-acoustic bass or a hollow bodied bass guitar. We don’t use a bass ukulele! Hope you can see us in concert sometime! 🙂

  5. Hi. I’m part of the Cambridge ukulele group. I’m hoping to do a spookulele session of our own (this will be number 3) and I was really impressed by your poster advertising your one – perhaps from last year? It had skeletons on it. I don’t suppose you might consider letting me have the artwork so I could adapt it to advertise our own event would you?
