Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays to all Pluckin’ Strummers!

We will be meeting again on the 14th of January which puts us back on our usual schedule of the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month. Thanks for another fantastic year of pluckin’ and strummin’!

Stay tuned for information about our 6 year anniversary celebration.

Meeting 12/17

Happy Holidays everyone! This is the last time we will gather in 2016. The back of book one is filled with holiday songs which we will of course play. If you have another holiday song please bring copies and well have a go of it.
After we have had enough holiday cheer we will work on our arrangements with hopefully a new one or two in the mix.

Hopefully we’ll have many to celebrate another year with our ukulele friends while giving everyone a break from the holiday chaos. Bring friends and family to sing along. 

Please feel free to bring snacks. We’ll take a little extra time for coffee and cookies! Fruitcake anyone? I actually love a good moist Fruitcake. Eggnog?

Thanks for another great Pluckin’ and Strummin’ year!

Soon we will meet again! This being a rescheduled third Saturday of the month instead of the fourth. Thank you all for being flexible for November and December so our meetings don’t interrupt the holidays. Our last gathering was fantastic. Thanks to all that attended. I’m hoping for another great turnout. I just finished another one of Chris Stapleton’s songs which we’ll play this Saturday. “Daddy Doesn’t Pray Anymore”. This one is an easy song without any fancy riffs but it is also quite sad but beautiful. I’ll post a link to Youtube so have a listen. Grab a tissue! 😥

Meeting Nov. 5th

*Holiday meetings schedule changed.

Because of the upcoming holidays and the three weeks between our last meeting on Oct. 22nd and the next normally scheduled gathering on the 12th of November we will switch the dates for November and December to the first and third Saturdays instead of the second and fourth.

The dates for our upcoming meetings will be;

Nov. 5th and 19th instead of the 12th and 26th

Dec. 3rd and 17th instead of the 10th and 24th.

Thanks to everyone that came to our last meeting on the 22nd. Our “Quick Pick” meeting worked out very nicely with many good song choices from our members. This time I’ve taken some time to come up with a fantastic list of songs from the back of the blue book. I surely had fun on my couch playing through the list and hopefully everyone will enjoy them also.

I really enjoyed the second half of the last meeting. Playing our arrangements was really a blast. Traveller, Gale Song, and Me and Julio were highlights. I’ll try my best to introduce a new song or two for our November 5th meeting. Song suggestions are always welcome. Send me an email, leave a FB comment, or use Meetup to make a suggestion.
