Our regularly scheduled Get Together for March will be at Charlie’s Pub and Eatery in Edinboro, PA from 6:30 to 9:00 PM. We’ll start as usual with some easier songs and then move on.
In preparation for St. Patrick’s Day, an early “wearin’ of the green” as it were, we will play many of the Irish songs from our Songbook Vol. 1 and we’ll throw in a few of the newer songs from the new songs list.
Looking forward to another great gathering of ukulele players to sing and strum and just have a bunch of fun. We’d like to hear what you are working on for your own enjoyment, so practice up for and open mic time.
Here is a list of songs to get us started for the evening and we’ll go with player choices after that. These are in no particular order.
It Ain’t Gonna Rain No More
She’ll Be Coming Around the Mountain
If You’re Happy and You know It
Old Dan Tucker
You Can Count on Me
Beer Beer Beer
Black velvet Band
Cockels and Mussels
Since Maggie Dooley Learned the Hooley
The Wild Rover
Whiskey in the Jar
With temperatures in the single digits and more than three feet of snow on the ground these intrepid ukulelists made it out to celebrate World Ukuele/Groundhog Day.
As can be easily seen in this picture we have several very young members in our group now which helps to keep the groups’s median age lower. Good!
Our next regularly scheduled get together is on Tuesday, February 10. Hope to see you there.
Here is a special news flash for all of the NWPA Ukulele folk:
And it’s Groundhog’s day too, let’s celebrate.

World Ukulele Day
Bonus Ukulele Night
at Charlie’s Pub and Eatery in Edinboro,
Yes, a bonus Ukulele night. from 6:30 – 9:00
We will gather as usual but now we are going to add an extra half hour on to the beginning of the evening to help accomodate some of the newer ukulele players and to give our elementary school players a little more playing time before they are forced to go home to bed ‘cause it’s a school night.:-)
We’ll use this half hour to work slowly on some easier warmup songs and to give mentoring help when it is requested. If you think that this is a good idea show up at 6:30 ready to play.
We will try to keep the first 1&1/2 hours on the simpler side of our song list and we will be adding some child oriented songs to our new song list. Please don’t think of this as anything other than more ukulele fun for all of us. The experienced players are asked to mentor.
We are now projecting our song sheet for all to see. Song list, etc. will be sent soon
Looking forward to seeing you all there!
