Thanks so much to everyone who turned out last Sunday!  The beginning workshoppupu hoursing along format seemed to work well, so we will do it again!  Here are links to the songs that we practiced in the workshop.  (They’re two to a page so we can 1) save paper and 2)fold in half and use with the kani-ka-pila klip.)

The Yellow Rose of Texas and Cornbread and Butter Beans

Didn’t Leave Nobody but the Baby and Chain of Fools

Jambalaya and Get Together

Also, I’m trying to update the list of other ukulele clubs and scheduled jam sessions in the area. If you know of any that I have not included (and I’m sure there are many) and can send me the link to their website, I’ll get them included as soon as possible.

Here’s Something New

From Kani-Ka-Pila!  Handy dandy ukulele fret stamps in different colors and a limited-time price reduction:
