If you're in the Chapel Hill, North Carolina area, and you want to have fun playing the uke with friendly people, the UUkes welcome you!

This group was started by members of the Community Church of Chapel Hill (Unitarian Universalist) who wanted to play ukulele together. Since then, membership has expanded beyond church members, but we maintain our affiliation with the church and perform at services and other church events, including the annual music gala.

When we get together, we play a lot from the book The Daily Ukulele, by Liz and Jim Beloff. The last time we checked, Amazon had a pretty good price. Enough of us have it now that you can probably look on with someone a few times, but if you're going to come regularly, you'll probably want your own copy.

In addition,  Dan Poirier of our group compiled a songbook of tunes that we play frequently, that are not found in The Daily Ukulele. This songbook can be downloaded and printed out from our "Files" section, which is accessible to all members.

Members and visitors are also welcome to bring song sheets of their own choosing to our jams. Please bring at least a dozen copies (16 or 18 even better!) to pass around if you do this.

We're 149 UUkers

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.
