It was absolutely fantastic to see so many people turn up for the first OUO of 2015! I had missed you all over the Christmas break.
Tell you what though – it was brilliant to get stuck into some new songs (as much as I love Christmas – I am happy to be doing some non-festive songs!).
I always get nervous when we start a new term…will people like the new songs? will people come back??!
Here’s what we got up to this week…
SESSION 1 7pm – 8pm
SESSION 2 8pm – 9pm
Our first this year is a fundraiser for an incredible young man called Sol.
SUNSHINE FOR SOLOMON 30.01.15
If you’d like to come please get in touch – tickets £5!
Sol has requested we play this song…
Hope to see you soon!
This past weekend was another one fun-filled with Ukulele action!
Friday night was Julie and Gary’s party up in Menston. We had a great time playing for all their family and friends and enjoyed all the lovely food! Julie and Gary are a lovely couple and were very generous donating money to the OUO and also giving us all a bottle of wine!
Saturday was Kirkstall Festival which, once again, was glorious weather and a wonderful atmosphere. We loved entertaining the crowds gathered in the CLoisters. Such a lovely place to play.
I wish I had some photos of us playing!
The dramatic Kirkstall Abbey
MONDAY 21st July will be our last session
WEDNESDAY 23rd July is the strum and sing with RUG at The New Highwood (8pm)
THURSDAY 24th July is Summer Social with Otley A Cappella. Bring things to sit on, things to drink and games to play to Wharfemeadows Park (past skate park) for 7:30pm. We’ll play rounders! If weather terrible there will be a plan b – but check Facebook!
See you soon I hope
We had another fantastic session last night and it was lovely to play outside the Woolpack for 2 whole hours. I am sure our new neighbours at North Bar loved the entertainment and we got some applause from various passers by!
