The Austin Ukulele Society is excited to welcome the UK’s Peter Moss back to Austin! Those who attended Peter’s last Austin appearance in 2018 know what a dynamic and entertaining performer and instructor he is. Peter and his ukuleles have toured the U.S. and Canada and been on BBC Radio and Television. He has also taught workshops and performed engaging concerts at ukulele festivals throughout several countries in Europe, parts of Australia, and all over New Zealand. We’re thrilled to be hosting him for a workshop and concert, on Friday, October 21!
Peter Moss has been playing the ukulele since his 8th birthday, when he received his first ukulele from his dad. After spending some years learning to excel on the uke, he spent 30 years exploring other instruments and contributing to various recording projects. He returned to his first love (the ukulele, of course) in 2012 and has dedicated himself since, to sharing his ukulele and banjo ukulele talent, stories, humor and teaching around the world. You can learn more about Peter by checking out his YouTube Channel. Here’s a fabulous sample:
Memorial United Methodist Church, in the Parlor (6100 Berkman Dr, Austin, TX, 78723)
Friday, October 21; 7:00pm – 9:00pm (Doors at 6:30, Workshop 7:00-8:00pm, Concert 8:15-9:00pm)
Join Peter for his “3 in 1” workshop. He’ll cover basic and substitute chords, what purpose they have and some helpful material on how chords belong to groups or families. The importance of timing by demonstrating swing tunes of the past with push/pull beats and stops will also be covered. Peter will also demonstrate the benefits of changing tempo part way through a tune. Next, Peter will place all of the above into a classic tune for us to play and add to our repertoire. Handouts will be provided. Open to all levels, though knowledge of basic chords is encouraged.
For the concert, Peter will perform a wide variety of tunes in his unique style and share his humor and stories as well.
