Have you ever thought it might be fun to lead a group in a sing & strum?  If so, we’d love to hear from you!

Planning is in the works for our next Sing & Strum in late February.  We thought it might be fun to mix things up a bit and have some of you lead us all in a song or two. We’re not looking for seasoned performers, but instead any level Ukester who is willing to step out of their comfort zone and give it a try. So if you’re reading this thinking “why not?”, all you have to do is to reply to this email before Friday, January 29th with:

1.  the titles of 1 or 2 (maximum) songs
2.  song sheets (with chords) of the songs proposed
3.  whether or not you are, or can be ready for our February event
We can’t wait to hear from you! Contact us by going to the contact form found on the right side bar.

A very Happy New Year to you all.

We had a great response to our Christmas “Zoom” Sing and Strum on December 13th, over 60 people logged on to join us in the Festivities.

We are currently planning another Zoom Sing and Strum for February. This time we will be adding a short workshop by Carol Johns, who has recently completed her JHUI Level 3 Teaching Certificate. Congratulations Carol.

This event will be free. Registration details will be available by the end of January and a Songbook will be emailed a couple of days before the event.

 

We have no idea whether an ‘in person’ Festival will be viable this year as the COVID vaccine roll-out has yet to start in Canada.

Our other option is to plan more online events and invite guest performers and instructors to appear. We would have to charge a fee for those events so we can pay the artists, who have all been struggling during COVID.

If you have any ideas and suggestions, we would be glad to hear them email us at nanukefest@gmail.com

Meanwhile…..    Keep on strumming….
