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 have started to perform to members of the public and are available to play at various events throughout the area. They can also involve the audience in group workshops aiming to spread the word of the mighty ukulele and aim the workshop group to play a couple of easy songs together. The club members meet up every Sunday from 12-2pm at Club Britannia on Lowther Street 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 email@example.com
