Hi DUGs,
What a night!
A big, big THANK YOU to everyone who came to our 2nd-anniversary meeting.
We had a great turnout - 24 of us, joint highest attendance. 
I am still amazed at how far we have come as a group.
Our 'photo session' was such a success (and a lot of FUN).
I have wanted to get a good group photo for a while now.
Doune Ukule Group 2
This week's playlist has been selected by Hazel and Gemma.
Their new song suggestion surprised me on two counts:
This song was only released just over a month ago - DUGs doing contemporary!
But, even more surprising - I never, in my wildest dreams, ever thought we would be doing a Beyonce song!?!?!
To be fair, Beyonce, known as one of the world's top R&B performers, surprised everyone with her new 'Country' song, Texas Hold 'Em.
For those of you not as up-to-the-minute as Hazel, Gemma, and I 😂, here is a link to the video:
The song sheet is in the Dropbox folder:


Dirty Old Town
Let your love Flow
Mr Tambourine Man
Texas Hold 'Em
Brown Eyed Girl
Western Isles
Me and Julio
Blame it on the ukulele
Ooooooooh, ooooooooooh, oooooooooooh!!!! and Part of the Union!!!!

Scottish Ukulele Mini-fest

Ukey Hooky, Falkirk's ukulele group. are planning a Ukulele Mini-fest in June this year.
The Scottish Ukulele Mini-fest will be a one-day event where the Ukulele groups across the Central Belt can come together and take part in the activities; Workshops, Jam Sessions, Open Mic, and Performances.
I spoke to the organiser this week and he would very much like DUG to take part. Obviously, I will speak to the group about this on Wednesday, but I indicated that I would like us to take part.
I have attached the draft programme of activities so you can get an idea of what they have planned.
