I just got back from my second big turkey dinner of the weekend, so I'd better get this missive done before I fall asleep. I hope all of you had as good a Thanksgiving weekend!
First, a big thank you to those who participated in the KingstonFest event! Altogether, we had seven ukulele players serenading people in the St. Lawrence College cafeteria.
But on to the next ukulele jam. We start at 7:00pm on Wednesday, October 15, with a workshop. After a short break, we'll resume at 8:00pm with our usual open jam. You'll have the opportunity to show off your uke skills, or lead the group with your favorite songs. Or just sit back and strum along with everyone else. With no other public performances in the foreseeable future, we're back to our usual routine. So far, I've prepared a few songs:
- Maxwell's Silver Hammer, The Beatles, 1969 (play along video)
- Take It Easy, The Eagles, 1972 (play along video)
- Take Me Home, Country Roads, John Denver, 1971 (play along video)
Before Wednesday, I should have a few more songs. As usual, please feel free to bring copies of your songs too.
We jam in the Royal Tavern, 344 Princess Street. Parking is normally available on Princess Street. Or park in the lot at the back of the Royal, off Brock Street, just past the fire hall. Be sure to show your appreciation to the Royal by visiting the bar and purchasing a beverage or two. Don't forget that they also offer soft drinks, in addition to their assortment of beers and other alcoholic drinks.
