March 10 Get Together – Maybe a few Irish Songs

IMG_0205

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
Hound Dog
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
Danny Boy
George M.Medley
Since Maggie Dooley Learned the Hooley
The Wild Rover
Toora Loora
Whiskey in the Jar

February 10 Get Together

Once again, a great time was had by all in attendance at our regular get together on February 10. There were a few new players, a lot of smiling faces and lots hooting and hollering. It doesn’t get any better than this.

There were some more children to help this group stay young and challenged and there was lots of mentoring going on.  Paul and Mike did their rendition of “Mac the Knife” for the group, it was excellent.

World Ukulele Day

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.
