Carlisle Ukulele Club was started in the Autumn of 2011 when a group of work colleagues got together and thought a Ukulele club was a must for the Carlisle area. They soon located a great venue in the city and put some flyers up in the local music shops to try and gain some interest. Within weeks new members were getting in touch and attending the meetings. A songbook was created with songs from various decades ranging from Bob Dylan, Radiohead, David Bowie, The Cure, Status Quo, Kings of Leon and Katy Perry to name but a few. Some songs are quite easy to play and some are a bit more technical, but all are played with good humour and not taken too seriously.
The club perform at various events throughout the area ranging from WI Meetings, Pubs and Clubs, Festivals and private parties and peoples houses.
The club members now meet up every Sunday from 12-2pm at Carlisle Conservative Club on Spencer Street in Carlisle. For more information or general enquires then please contact the ukulele club via the "Contact Us" page on this website or via our e-mail address at firstname.lastname@example.org
