Hope to see you there!
We had two fantastic gigs at Otley Folk Festival this weekend – a huge thank you to everyone who came to play, sing along and support us! We had a great time. Big thanks also to Otley Folk Festival for inviting us to play.
At The Methodist Chapel
Warming up in the Old Cock
Outside the Woolpack
And here is a little video of us playing in the Methodist Church
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
FOLK FEST SEPT2014
Check out what else is on over the weekend here…
Great Northern Ukulele Festival
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!
It’s soooo tiny… !!!!
Look forward to strumming with y’all soon
