Next circle: With the Beatles

Tuesday, March 6
7–9 PM
Sawchyn Guitars, 2132 Dewdney Avenue, Regina, SK

Thank you for a great circle in February. I hope the love songs (and not-so-love songs) got you ready for Valentine’s Day.

March is going to be all about the Beatles. We’ve got quite a few Beatles songs in our collection already, but if you have any favourites you’d like to add, please send them my way.

Don’t forget, April is our anniversary and your chance to dazzle the rest of the group with a solo or group performance!

February’s circle: Love songs and heartache

Tuesday, February 6

Valentine’s Day is around the corner so we’ve lined up a mix of love songs and breakup songs.

Did you realize our birthday is just around the corner?! April 2018 will mark our fourth anniversary and, has become tradition, we’re going to open up the floor to anyone who wants to share their talents and favourite songs with the group.

Music for January

With windchills dipping into the minus 40s, here some music to remind that summer is just a few short months away. We have one new song and a few more from our song book.

And here are a few warm weather/summer songs we’ve played before:

Warm thoughts to chase away the wind chill.

Winter is in full effect so let’s escape to a warmer season. Send me your favourite tropical or summery song suggestions.

Happy holidays to you and yours! I can’t wait to see you all in the new year.

Happy strumming.

December’s Circle: An early Christmas

Santa and Mrs. Claus playing ukuleleThe holiday season is upon us. Let’s add a couple of new Christmas songs to the repertoire so we can be ready for any eggnog-fueled sing-a-longs!

We also have lots of other Christmas songs in our collection to get through.

Ho ho ho!

November’s circle

Tuesday, November 7
7–9 PM
Sawchyn Guitars, 2132 Dewdney Avenue, Regina

There’s no theme this month so I’m going through a few of the suggestions that people have sent in. We played When I’m Sixty-Four a couple of months ago, but I’ve cleaned it up a bit and thought it should become part of our “official” songbook.

Next month we’ll dive into some Christmas music. We already have a few in the collection, but please send suggestions for new additions.

See you next week and Happy Halloween!

Music for October and an amazing ukulele workshop!
