Gigs With Ukes 3

Tricity Vogue

Q/ What do you call a woman with a uke on her head?  A/ Tricity Vogue

On Sunday 29 September, Tricity Vogue‘s Ukulele Cabaret & Workshop returns to The Albany, Douglas Way, Deptford, London SE8 4AG. It’s £7 for show only, £12 for workshop & show. The workshop runs 4.30 – 6.30pm, show 7 – 9pm.

Once again, PLUC’s Uncle Rufus will be there performing along with Nick Browning & Tricity. Other acts include Ewan Wardrop & trio, the Sugar Sisters.

The grand finale will be a mass performance by the Albany All Stars – everyone who’s just attended that afternoon’s workshop will play a huge group medley.

I attended last year & it was great fun! The workshop splits you into beginners & more advanced – some people had never touched a uke before. It’s a good way of finding out what it’s like to perform in front of an audience (I can just be spotted at the back in the videos!).

Bring your own uke &, if you have one, music stand (so you’re more comfortable looking at the music – we were in a room without tables last time).
