Workshops at the Grand Northern Uke Festival

I’m really pleased to be back at the Grand Northern Uke Festival again this year, along with over 30 other acts, including Aaron and Nicole Keim (The Quiet American), Manitoba Hal, Sarah Maisel & Craig Chee, Zoe Bestel, Dead Man’s Uke, Adam Franklin and Ian Emmerson. If you’re um-ing and ah-ing about coming, don’t wait. It’s just £39 for a weekend ticket, which is getting pretty close to £1 an act!

There are, of course, workshops too. I’m running a brand new workshop called ‘Jamming Essentials’, which will teach you how to get stuck in playing with other people, even when you don’t know the song, without having to go searching on the internet for the chords!

See you there!

A Grand Northern Ukulele Festival 2014

GNUF 2014  And wasn’t it grand! I had such an amazing time, both performing and watching the other acts (what a line-up!) It was a real privilege to be able to perform alongside some wonderful players and great to catch up with good friends.  Huge thanks to the organisers,
it was a weekend  I shan’t forget in a hurry!
And tickets are already available for next year’s festival (22nd-24th May 2015). I’ll be there!
