End Of An Era – Kitty Lux

In this week’s PLUC session we were all very shocked and saddened to learn the news that Kitty Lux of the Ukulele Orchestra Of Great Britain had died. Co-founder and Director of the UOGB, she was a major force behind the Orchestra.

She had been ill for a while and thus unable to perform on stage with them for the last few years. Here’s Kitty’s rendition of the Lou Reed number Satellite of Love:

Happy Pi Day!

Well, it is if you use the US date format, as today is 3.14.15 – which is the first few digits of the mathematical constant, Pi. As I haven’t snuck in any puns lately, here’s a lovely instrumental rendition of the Don McLean classic, American Pie, covered by Matthew Richards. Hop over to Ukulele Hunt to hear Woodshed play Pi on the ukulele & read how it even caused a legal battle.

PS I’m not quite sad enough to schedule this to post at 3.14…

PLUC Member’s Choice 2013 – Tina

I have a few and one of them is my son’s favourite. I wonder if you will be able to guess which one that is?

I cannot pretend that I am fluent in playing any one of them but they are where my aspirations lie.  Maybe when I can play them well, my singing will improve too (SMILE).

Thanks.

Tina
