As the snow returns to Kingston, we all need a pick-me-up. What can be better than a uke jam to pick up our spirits during the darkest days of the year.
The next jam is this Wednesday, November 19, at the Royal Tavern. We'll start at 7:00pm with a workshop, exploring the intricacies of a popular song of the mid-1960's, a song that helped popularize the Gibson Fuzzbox.
We'll continue at 8:00pm with our usual open jam, where we'll play a variety of songs. If you like, you can solo your favorite songs, lead the group with your song choices, or just sit back and strum along with the group. I've prepared the following songs, conveniently packaged in one pdf:
- Easy Come Easy Go, Great Lakes Swimmers 2012 (video)
- Killing Me Softly, Lori Lieberman 1971 (video)
- Little Record Girl, Bahamas (Afie Jurvanen) 2014 (video)
- What Did You Learn In School Today, Tom Paxton 1962 (play along video)
I'll also bring along copies of some songs we've done before. Please feel free to bring along copies of songs you want to do 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.
