UKULELE
The members of the UKULELE group have voted to continue meeting via Zoom until the COVID-19 situation becomes a lot clearer. I (Steve Lister) will continue to give structured learning sessions on Friday mornings at 11.00. (via ZOOM), while Dave McKeon holds practice sessions throughout the week (see below). Many members also attend sessions with other non-U3A ukulele groups.

Invitation to join the Ukulele group’s other ZOOM sessions

Dave McKeon reports that some members from the Friday morning Ukulele group have been meeting for Zoom sessions on Mondays, Tuesday, Wednesdays, and alternate Thursdays at 3 pm.Two of the sessions are for a FUNQUIZ, with everyone present on Zoom - so if any U3A members want to join in they’re very welcome.

He continues ‘The other two sessions are ukulele ones – BUT THEY MIGHT ALSO INTEREST OTHER PEOPLE. I’ll explain why: during these sessions we go through some songbooks I’ve put together, and other songs [all well- known ones] in a relaxed, singalong way. So,anyone who fancies joining in, is again, very welcome. Because of the sound delay in Zoom, we can’t all play and sing together as a group, but I lead the songs, while the other people, in their homes, are muted, so I can’t hear them, but they can hear me, and so join-in playing/singing. Anyone who can’t play the uke can come and take part in these sessions if they’d like to. They might want to just watch/listen, or they can test out their vocal cords by singing along in their homes-albeit in a duo with me. I thought this might appeal to some of the choir members?

’If this is something you would like to be involved in, the Zoom link for all of these sessions is:
