Wow, we’ve reached our second month and fifth jam already! How time flies. It seems like only yesterday we were talking about arranging a regular ukulele jam in Stretford.
It’s brilliant to see people coming back again and again, and we’ve had lots of positive feedback. It’s great that folk are having as much fun with the ukes as we are!
The first session just saw one change from last week, with Creep being swapped out for Jeff Beck’s Hi Ho Silver Lining. This went down really well, so it’s definitely a keeper for the songlist.
The second session saw us tackling a whole host of songs, including Cecelia, Friday I’m in Love, Gold, Hey Ya, Hit the Road Jack, Jolene, Maggie May, She Bangs the Drums, Tainted Love, Teenage Kicks and Tide Is High. There’s nothing like belting out a bit of Spandau Ballet with a uke on a wet Tuesday in Stretford.
Hope to see you again next week! As ever, if you have any feedback or requests for the songbook or songlist, then please do get in touch!
Stretford Uke is a free weekly ukulele jam, welcoming players of all levels, from beginners to advanced. A fun strum along to liven up the start of the week!
