Please note the following arrangements for our club nights around Christmas:
Tue 10 Dec – Lewis Club. Please bring Xmas Songbooks, as we’ll be playing some numbers from those in addition to our regular PLUC repertoire. (Songs are up in the PLUC Box – in the Xmas Songsheets and New & Try-out Songs. Look out for a new version of Mele Kalikimaka containing extra tinsel in the next day or two.)
Tue 17 Dec – Jolly Farmers pub. Again, we’ll play some Christmas numbers as well as our standard tunes.
Tue 24 Dec Xmas Eve & Tue 31 Dec New Year’s Eve – XMAS BREAK.
We return to the Lewis Club on Tue 7 Jan 2014.
For recent members, do make sure you’re up-to-date with printing out our songs, as we’re likely to be joined by a fresh batch of folk in the New Year. It’s easier for sharing music if most of us have copies handy. Thanks.
The final club night of the year was our annual Christmas Strumalong at the Jolly Farmers pub, attended by Andrew, Brendan, Chris, Colin, Daniel, James, Jeanette, Mary, Ron, Rufus & Simon.
We played a selection of our current songllist, raced through Sing-A-Long-A-PLUC & finished with a number of seasonal tunes from popular sources such as Doctor Uke’s Christmas Medleys 1 & 2; Ukuke’s Christmas Ukulele Songbook & some PLUC Xmas arrangements.
And we left with our traditional Hawaiian farewell – this time, the festive Mele Kalikimaka.
Our annual Christmas Strumalong will be from 8pm, Tues 18 December 2012 in the Jolly Farmers pub, just outside Lewisham Hospital.
Contact Simon for links to the Xmas songbooks we’ll be using (he may also bring a few spare copies on the night).
This will be the last club night of the year – the following Tuesdays are Christmas Day & New Year’s Day. We will reconvene back at the Lewis Club on Tues 8 January 2013.
As always, all players are welcome to join us, whatever their level of experience. Just bring yourself & your uke!
At this week’s club night we had a surprise visit from some Antipodean ukers – two players each from The Blue Mountains Ukulele Group and SSCUM – St George and Sutherland Community of Ukulele Musicians who were over in the UK separately on holiday visiting friends, family & ukulele builders. They’d been looking to find a local group with whom to enjoy an evening’s strumming & we were delighted for them to join us for the evening!
Sun 10 June 2012 saw Tricity Vogue’s Ukulele Cabaret visit the Albany, Deptford. Starring Tricity, Nick Browning & PLUC’s very own Rufus Yells, there were also a number of other fine acts, including Banjo Dez, Clare Uchima & The Dulwich Ukulele Club. For the finale, folk had been invited to turn up with their ukuleles for a pre-show workshop & perform as the Albany All Stars. All great fun!
