Queen City Ukes

A ukulele community in Regina, Saskatchewan

Month: March 2017

April 2017: Our third birthday!

April 11, 2017 (second Tuesday!)
7–9 PM
Sawchyn Guitars, 2132 Dewdney Avenue, Regina, SK

In 2014, a few strangers brought their ukuleles to Sawchyn Guitars for our first circle. Three years later, the group has grown and friendships have been built.

Like our other anniversary circles, I’m turning the floor over to you. Anyone who wants to is invited to play a solo or lead the group in a song. I’ll have a sign up sheet at the counter; just add your name if you want to take the stage.

After the performances, we’ll have a few snacks and drinks and then play through our favourites from the catalogue.

I’ll also collect dues for 2017. It’s only $10 for the year, which gets you a nifty name card and the happiness that comes with helping to keep the circle going 🙂  Also, Sawchyn occasionally offers deals for card holders, so there’s something in it for you, too.

Most importantly: NOTE THE DATE! I’m going to be out of town so we’ve had to move April’s circle to the second Tuesday.

Happy anniversary to everyone! I’ll see you on April 11.

Happy St. Paddy’s, March 2017

Next circle: March 7, 2017
7–9 PM
Sawchyn Guitars, 2132 Dewdney Avenue

This month’s song selections should help us throw a pretty good ceilidh!

There are many version of Red is the Rose on YouTube. While most are in D, I like the one above because it’s in C, which is a bit better suited to the ukulele.

There are also many different lyrics for Whiskey in the Jar. The one on here match the version by The Irish Rovers.

Don’t forget! Next month we have to move back a week to April 11. It’s also our third anniversary and your chance to perform for the rest of the group!
