Hi DUGs,
No new songs this week. We have two or three new ones coming up in the next couple of weeks, so I want to concentrate this week on the setlists for our upcoming events.
The Callander performance is on the 24th May, followed by the 3F Group, just a few days later on the 28th.
These events are just around six weeks away. Most of the songs on the setlists are familiar to us, but it wouldn't do any harm to get a bit of practice in.
All the songs selected for Callander are also in the 3F Group (which is a longer set, with about half a dozen more songs).
So, we'll work through the Callander setlist:
Feelin' Groovy
Eight Days a Week
Love Me Do
I'm A Believer
Dedicated Follower of Fashion
Mr Tambourine Man
Folsom Prison Blues
Wild Mountain Thyme
Loch Lomond
Flower of Scotland
Mairi's Wedding
Bring Me Sunshine
I’m Leaning on a Lamppost
Morningtown Ride
Country Roads
Leaving on a Jet Plane
If time allows, we could look at the additional songs in the 3F setlist:
What Was I Made For?
Sunny Afternoon   
Blowin' in the Wind     
I'm A Ukulele Player    
I'm on my Way     
Big Yellow Taxi   
California Blue   
Scottish Ukulele Mini-fest
I realise that a full day event like this is too much for many of our members (11 am 8pm).
I spoke to the organiser last week and if anyone wants to join us for just an hour or two in the afternoon they would be welcome.
The event will have representatives of ukulele groups from across the central belt and promises to be a great day out.
If you would like to join us, or just come along to watch, please let me know.
Up to now, I think there will be ten of us performing in the afternoon.
The members who have shown an interest so far are below.
If I have missed anyone, again, please let me know:
