Christmas Strumalong 2014

As usual, our final club night of the year was the annual Christmas Strumalong at the Jolly Farmers pub. This time, group members included Andrew, Bob, Chris K, Christina K, Colin, Dan, Ed, Jeanette, Liz, Maria, Rufus, Steve H, Steve J & Tina.  We entertained the football-watching crowd with a number of our favourite tunes. And some Xmas ones as well.

We were sorry not to see several of our regulars who couldn’t join us this evening – such as Chris, Jos, Kev & Shelia – so wish them all a very Merry Xmas & Happy New Year.

Ding Dong Ukuleles On High

Deck Your Uke For Xmas – see how at The Instructables website

At this time of year, some folk rejoice in the sound of Christmas tunes gaily ringing out from every store & the rest of us do our best to avoid even going to the shops from mid-October, when the Xmas season now appears to start!

In case you are looking for an excuse to get out your uke in the bleak midwinter, Jacqueline has noticed there is a Ukulele Carol Jam – Fri 19 Dec 2014  at The Hill Station (Telegraph Hill, Kitto Road SE14 5TW) as part of their Friendly Friday series of community events. Hosted by Sheridan James (aka the Uke Playing Rev, from St Catherine’s Church, New Cross), there are two sessions – the Kids’ Jam from 4pm – 6pm for 4 – 12 year olds & a second one for 12+ & adults, 7.30pm onwards. Contact The Hill Station Cafe for more details.

If you fancy rocking around the Christmas tree, our annual PLUC Xmas Strumalong for past & present members is happening on Tue 16 Dec 2014.

And if you’d like some further festive open strumming sessions instead of having a silent night, for a good round-up of London’s uke clubs & events see The Mighty Ukulele listings pages and monthly mailshot for where you can jingle your bells. Or go out for a pizza instead (deep pan, crisp & even).

Christmas Strumalong 2

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!
