I hope you enjoyed the sessions we had at Braemar this year - I know I had loads of fun with you all. Hope to do it all again next time.
The worksheets for the various things we tried can be downloaded from the Resources page (no password). They’ll be on the website for a couple of weeks, then I’ll take them down.
All the best,
Thanks to everyone who attended my sessions in Dublin. As usual a wonderful crowd of learners and great fun had by all. I hope you all took away some inspiration and knowledge to help you to the next stage of your playing. I had a ball and I’m forever grateful to Eileen and her team who made us feel so welcome. I hope to see you all another time.
All the best, Finlay
On the weekend of January 23/24 2016, for the 3rd year running I’ll be presenting the fantastic Celtic Connections Ukulele School!
This was my second year at the Arts Festival and this one even more enjoyable than the last. MT and I had such a great time. Thanks to all who attended and brought their enthusiasm and concentration to the events.
Special Thanks to Liz and Duncan for great hospitality and to Marilyn and Richard for all their help.
Worksheets on the Resources page until 1st December.
Here’s what we sounded like…
And here’s what we also sounded like…
And here’s what we looked like…
If the relative numbers of ukulele enthusiasts to population in Braemar was carried to a large city like Glasgow-then our next Glasgow ukulele day could expect 20,000 ukulele players (I wish!).
An amazing turnout and great fun and chat had by all. Thanks to Liz and Duncan for great hospitality. Thanks also to Marilyn and Richard for organisation. Keep strumming! Looking forward to Braemar Arts Festival in October. See you all then.
What a weekend! Thanks to all who made our visit to Dublin such a success. Worksheets available on the Resources page-email me if needing password to access.
Over four and a half hours on Saturday and still they went on to play and sing all night! Amazing stamina and concentration from a packed room. It was quite something to stand in front of all those ukuleles when they were belting out 'I Heard It Through The Grapevine'! I was a burnt-out case at the end of that but we were back next day for another session with Absolute Beginners.
Great advance publicity organised by the team meant standing room only at this event. I'm really grateful to Sheilagh, Pat, Charlie and all the teachers, tuners and helpers who supported the workshop and made the afternoon such a success. Special thanks to Eileen and her team for looking after Marie Therese and myself so well and supporting us with such generous hospitality. Here's to the next time!
