Steel City Ukuleles was invited to perform at the 2014 Stephen Foster Music and Heritage Festival (Doo Dah Days) at the Allegheny Cemetery, Lawrenceville. We are expected to play for one hour, starting at 11:15. Our playlist must include several songs written by Stephen Foster.
We will have three practice sessions. Dates and times are posted in the comments below. Please plan to attend two rehearsals to participate since there will be lots of new material. Performers should plan to wear either a red or blue SCU t-shirt.
Please join us!
