This Meetup is for ukulele players interested in more formal instrumental ukulele music. We play mostly 5-part music including melody, counter-melody, harmonies, and chords. Our music provides parts for re-entrant (soprano, concert, and tenor), low-G, and baritone ukuleles. We use standard music notation as well as tabs. Formal music education is not required but we do discuss music theory and consider sound production techniques. We will sing and strum...but not a lot. We're here for fun, education, making beautiful music, and promoting the ukulele in the instrumental genre.
Prudence Island Harvest Festival. Informal event. Microphones may/may not be available. Bring extra money for food and beverages. A veggie section is provided by gardeners in the community garden with items they grew to benefit the farm and its expenses. Separate from that are chicken wings, hot dogs, ice cream, and non-alcoholic drinks.
A couple of us played on the island in 2018...not at the festival but what a blast. A pleasant ferry ride and spectacular views from the island. A great Saturday day trip.
