Time: 5:30 until 10:00, Supper at 6:30

Special guest: Gerald Ross, Concert

You: We’ll need you to help, too. Stay tuned.

Happy Birthday, SCU. We’re going “off campus” to Mt. Washington for a Potluck Supper, Uke Jam on the porch and Concert with special guest superstar Gerald Ross. Gerald plays guitar, ukulele and Hawaiian steel guitar and a whole lot more. AND he’s a terrific teacher -- direct, focused, easy to understand. Because this is a “drive-by” for Gerald, there’s no time for a workshop. Nothing stopping you from a DIY online lesson, though. See link below.


1) Bring an appetizer, salad or main dish, or dessert, AND a beverage to share - wine, beer or pop. 

2) Email Marlene at [masked] and tell which category you will bring.

And a Swing Lesson:

ABOUT CHATHAM VILLAGE: Chatham Hall was a stop on the Underground Railroad. Built in 1849, a stop on the Underground Railroad, located within Chatham Village. Thomas James Bigham was an abolitionist lawyer and the editor of The Commercial Journal Anti-Slavery Newspaper. Tradition states that Bigham's black family nurse, Lucinda, faithfully watched from the tower of the Bigham home for fugitive slaves or professional slave hunters.

More Later, All......

    I am sad to say that I also have to cancel this evening. My manager won't be here and I will have to close the office tonight on my own. I hope that you all have a great time, and don't be angry when I win the uke raffle despite not being there.

    At exactly 5pm I will sing Five Foot Two for Jack. Vive la ukulele!

      Make sure that you are signed in before trying to access the files. If you are still having a problem, just try again later--the site might be glitchy again.

      No playlist--but please bring 365 and any fave music since we will informally play.

    This is a beautiful venue and a very nice way to spend a summer evening. The grounds are well landscaped and the Bigham House is very interesting. It's like being in the country. I am looking forward to sitting on the porch and playing ukulele with friends. You should not miss this opportunity.
