I recently got together with my old sparring partner Ian Emmerson, a fine uke player but also a brilliant guitarist. We had a jam, and it sounded so good, we got the camera out and recorded four songs. This was great fun!
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!
