    Nancy I'll be interested in what they say. I have a similar dent? On the back of my 5 string. I bought an Oasis humidifier that hangs inside hoping that would help

      You may have been wise to wait for warmer times. My uke now has what may be a crack from the cold or a bump. Jason, at Backstage, says they can develop from as little as 9 degrees change. He is checking out the damage.

      Yes, extreme weather changes can damage stringed instruments! Hope your uke will be okay!

      I'll second all of that! Particularly nice to have a playlist which lends itself to harmonizing. The familiar tunes were fun, pretty or both. Thanks again Kathy.

    A fun evening. A good play list with some challenges. And of course a terrific leader. What more could we want. It made it worth braving the cold. Our enthusiasm must have raised the temperature at least a degree or two. Thanks Kathy.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
