September 15th – Getting Ready for Otley Folk Festival

Is it really a year since last year’s Otley Folk Festival all ready?!

We are very excited to be able to support such a great festival again… this year we will be performing twice on Sunday 21st September

4pm outside The Woolpack Music Studios (unless it’s terrible weather in which case we will find a pub… keep an eye out on Facebook…)

7pm we will be opening the evening’s proceedings at The Methodist Chapel, warming up the crowd for PlumHall and Jez Lowe.

I have put together two set lists for the two gigs… everyone is welcome to play at 4pm! The more the merrier… even if you just know 3 chords! The 7pm set is based more around songs we have been learning in the 8pm sessions on a Monday.

Here are the set lists

Great Northern Ukulele Festival

http://www.northernuke.com/

I had a great time at GNUF in Huddersfield on Sunday. Next year’s festival is May Bank Holiday Weekend so I will be hoping to make the whole weekend next year. Several OUOers were there and commented on the high standard of the workshops and performances. I was lucky enough to see the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain perform and I also attended their workshop too. It was interesting to see how they arranged their songs and everyone had a specific role. It definitely got me thinking about how to put our songs together in the future and how we can use everyone’s strengths within the group.

I also bought a new ukulele!!!!!!!

I really love the iUke!

I really love the iUke!

Look forward to strumming with y’all soon
