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.
We meet for a club practice night on the first Monday of every month in The Redfern, Kingmoor Road, Carlisle from 7- 9 pm. We also have a open jam session once a month 8 - 10 pm in The Crown & Thistle, Stanwix, Carlisle.
If you would like to join an informal uke club either as a regular or just for a one off visit, you will be most welcome at either our club nights or at any of the jams.
Next club night is Monday 1 April at The Redfern 7.00 to 9.00 pm
Next open jam session is Monday 22 April at The Crown & Thistle 8.00 to 10.00 pm
