On a windy and chilly December evening, over one hundred Austin Ukulele Society members, friends, and family gathered for our eighth annual Holiday Potluck and Strum-a-long, at the High Road on Dawson. There was much merriment, as folks enjoyed socializing over food and drinks. We also got out our ukuleles and Bob (with assistance from The John Davenport and Helen) guided the group through a strum and sing-a-long of our holiday song repertoire. We are so grateful for the wonderful year we’ve had, making great music with our Austin-area ukulele friends. We’re wishing everyone peace, love, and joy through the holiday season!
The group was treated to an extended open mic session, with a great variety of holiday and winter tunes in the mix. A big thanks to Bob and Jen, the Ukestra, the Tuesday Ukulele Group (TUG), Ray, Erin and Gabrielle, Rich, Alex, Jay, Kevin, Walter and Jack for sharing their talent and takes on so many fantastic songs.
