Hollesley 2015

03 Aug

If you like listening to or playing the uke, if you like meeting fun-loving, friendly and knowledgeable people, all in the heart of the beautiful Suffolk countryside, then Hollesley Ukulele Jamboree was the place to be.

Friday was open mic night, where our very own Rufus gave a wonderful rendition of Blue Turning Grey Over You.

The highlight of Saturday night’s show was Phil Doleman and Ian Emmerson reuniting as The Re-entrants and knocking out a better-than-Lemmie version of Ace Of Spades; the whole show magnificently MC’d by ‘Top Table’ Chris. Eat your heart out, Brucie!

In Sunday afternoon’s communal sing-song we went through forty numbers, ending with a tear-jerking version of that well known Vera Lynn WW2 ditty, Whale Meat Again.

To sum up, despite the effing weather, it was still a f***ing great weekend. And the beer was only £2.80 a pint.
