We had a big group of people–33 by our count–who attended the Sept 13 monthly meeting of AUS at the Central Market North Community Room. It’s been great to see people coming to join us for the first time; we hope you enjoyed it and will come back.
The group had a great time singing and strumming a lot of our old favorites, from Three Little Birds to On the Road Again, and we debuted the Willie Nelson/Patsy Cline song Crazy as our newest number. (Chords-&-lyrics sheets for all our songs are kept in the Ukulele Music Library.) Plus we had great performances from plenty of our regular attendees. In short, a great time was had by all. And there’s more ukulele stuff coming up in Austin:
- Sunday, September 18, Ukulele Workshops at Fiddler’s Green with Jessica Graves. Check their website for contact information: http://www.fiddlersgreenmusicshop.com/
- Sweetpea’s Ukulele Night at Skinny’s Ballroom next Wednesday, September 21, at 7:00pm. Skinny’s (http://skinnysballroom.com/) is located downtown at 115 San Jacinto with parking right across the street.
- Ukulele Soiree at the Swan Dive on Saturday, September 24. The Swan Dive is located at 615 Red River. Check out their website: http://www.swandiveaustin.com/
Our next meeting will be held once again at the Central Market North Community Room, from 7 – 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, October 11.
See you then, and watch for an announcement about our newest song.
