Ukuleles seem to be a popular Christmas present so we may have a few more people than usual. There may also be a few new members from Gary’s and Don’s ukulele classes and our appearance on CBC could also give us a bump. In order to get an idea of how many chairs to put out, please let me know either by email, a comment on this article on the website or add yourself to the Facebook event. There’s no need to reply in multiple places, though, as I don’t want to accidentally count you twice.
At the last circle we played all Christmas songs, but here are two bonus songs just for New Year’s Eve. You can’t ring in the new year without Robbie Burn’s ode to friends near and far, Auld Lang Syne. The other is a bit more challenging than most of our repertoire, but it’s seen a resurgence in popularity thanks to a celebrity YouTube post a few years ago.
These aren’t for the next circle; I just thought a few of you might like the challenge.
CBC Saskatchewan has asked us to help out with their Comfort and Joy campaign!

On Friday, December 11, the Morning Edition will be broadcast from the CBC Galleria and will be open to the public. The show traditionally ends with the crew singing “We Wish You a Merry Christmas”, but this year they are inviting ukulele players to help them out.
