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!
We shared music & had a fine time playing around twenty-two of our regular numbers (or twenty-three if you include Chris’ solo rendition of Waltzing Matilda!).
At the end of the evening, they presented us with a copy of the Blue MUGS’ CD – Call To Arms. Do check out the preview on their site, as it’s a fine listen.
Here are a few pictures I took of the night, showing just some of our club members – Chris, Colin, Katie, Jacqueline, James, Rufus, Simon, Steve & first-timer Colvin – plus our four Australian visitors. Simon also had his camera, so we will post more on-line soon.
