I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who has come on a Monday night, played at one of our gigs or been to see us play live in 2014. We’ve had an incredible year… the carnival, the Tour De France, Kirkstall Festival, Otley Beer Festival, Tealbeck, Dementia Cafes, Spookulele not to mention all the wonderful Christmas gigs we have done this year. It’s been amazing.
2015 will be full of new songs and new adventures together. I hope you can be a part of it!
Wishing you and your nearest and dearest a very Merry Christmas! And if you’re free on Christmas Day we’ll be singing carols at Tealbeck at 2pm… meet us at The Woolpack 1:45pm.
I will leave you with a little festive video…
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A STRUMMING NEW YEAR
Just a quick reminder that we are playing at Leeds Skyline World AIDS Day free event this Sunday at Leeds Art Gallery 2pm, Henry Moore Room. All welcome! Please come and help support such a great charity…

Hello my ukulele friends!
Just a quick update on what has been happening in Ukulele world…
We had several sessions recently when our room here at The Woolpack was bursting at the seams. But things are more comfortable now we have started out daytime ukulele and guitar social club on a Wednesday morning. There are now seats spare so hopefully you will find the session less cramped and more fun!
The Woolpack Music Social Club runs 10:30am -12:30pm every Wednesday morning and includes time for tea, biscuits and chatting! Check out http://www.woolpackmusicsocialclub.wordpress.com for the music we are working on.
We had a great time playing at Otley Beer Festival last week and had a great response from the crowd! There was lots of people singing along which we love! Hopefully there will be a bigger stage next year…! Huge thanks to Paul Briscoe for inviting us to play again.
Paul Briscoe played his guitar beautifully before we took to the stage

Play along with the song here (I can’t find an “official” video but this one is strangely hypnotic!)- it’s in the same key (although the intro is slightly different!)
