If you play the Ukulele, are learning, or are just curious what the international Uke phenomenon is all about, join us for our twice-monthly meet-up.
Our group is informal, we learn from each other and enjoy strumming and singing all kinds of music.
Coaching is available and there are instruments to try if you don't have your own.
We use a common songbook, but continue to glean songs from other sources. We use the songbook preferred by many other Uke groups in Maine and elsewhere: "The Daily Uke, 365 Songs for Better Living" by Liz and Jim Beloff.
The Library has copies has of both Liz and Jim's books to check out: http://minerva.maine.edu/search~S41?/abeloff/abeloff/1%2C2%2C5%2CB/exact&FF=abeloff+liz&1%2C2%2C
The book is also available for sale locally at Downhome Music in Fairfield http://downhomemusicshop.com/db/index.php
