Our ukulele group has been asked to perform again at this year's festival, which will be at Freedom Park!

Those of you who were participants last year remember the fun set we did (you can see video at We will be performing a fifteen minute set some time between 12:45 and 1:30 pm at the Bandshell.

We will meet for a final run through and warm up at the train in Freedom Park (by the playgrounds) at 11 am on festival day, and to pick up your "Carolina Cool Hand Ukes" t-shirt if you have not done so already. We will break for lunch from the food vendors at the festival, then reconvene by the bridge to the bandshell at 12:30 so we are ready to go when our time slot comes up.

The set list is: Drop Baby Drop, Jamaican Farewell, Strangest Dream, Imagine, and Royals, with On the Road Again and 3 Little Birds to be added if they give us additional playing time. You can find music in the "files" section (we will update with arrangements noted once finalized).
