Songlist (7th January 2020)

After eating far too many mince pies and having one too many shandies, our first ukulele jam of 2020 is on its way (can’t believe I’m writing 2020 already 😭).

After having a break for a couple of weeks, we’ve got a songlist with a few old favourites we’ve not played for a while back in there. Giving us chance to get back up to speed!

There’s a new version of the main Stretford Uke songbook, now v2.4. There’s also a new version of the Big Madchester And Beyond Ukulele Singalong songbook, now v1.1. Grab both from the songbook page.

If you’ve missed it, our next themed singalong is on Friday 21st February and it’s time to dig out your 20 inch flares and Joe Bloggs tops, as we’re going back to late 80s Manchester! 🙂 While we’ll have a few Madchester classics, we’ll also be dipping our toes into all eras of Manchester music, so there’ll be something for everyone.

  • The Lion Sleeps Tonight – The Tokens (pg67)
