May 14 “Hawaiian Song night at Charlie’s

May 14 is the next regularly scheduled get together at Charlie’s Pub and Eatery in Edinboro. Come early and have dinner.

There are eight new Hawaiian type songs (most of them pretty easy to play) posted in the song list on the web site. nwpaukuleles.com Please print these out and give them a try.

There are YouTube versions of all of theses songs to listen to if you are not familiar with the melodies. They may not be in the same key, but will help you to hear what you need to play. We will warm up with some easy familiar songs and then tackle these newer songs together.

I think that some of the Warren ukulele players and also some ukulele players from the Pittsburgh area will be here for this evening of ukulele fun and frolic. I hope that you are able to be there. If you missed the April session you missed a great time playing old folk songs.

Looking forward to seeing all of you,

April 9th Get Together

As always. the gathering at Charlie’s Pub and Eatery in Edinboro was a lot of fun. The “Folk Revival” playlist was a big hit and took us all on trips down memory lane. DSC_0938

There were fifteen ukulele players in attendance including four visitors from the ukulele group in Warren, PA. Laughter and ukulele playing go together so well. If you weren’t with us this month we did miss you and you missed a good time with great songs.

There are a few upcoming events that I would like you to consider:

May 2 is “Play Your Ukulele Day” – interested in a special get together for this?

June 22 – I have received a request for a group of ukulele players to perform for this year’s Relay for Life. The theme this year is Hawaiian and they would like that type of music. The event is June 22 and June 23, I believe at the CC Fairgrounds. The playing time is most likely during the cancer survivor’s reception. Other than this, I have no further information.

August 19 – They are looking for performers for the “Free Act Stage” at the Crawford County Fair. Any one interested?
