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 night on the first Monday of every month in The Redfern, Kingmoor Road, Carlisle from 7- 9 pm. We also have a jam session once a month starting at 8 pm in The Crown & Thistle, Stanwix, Carlisle.
New members are always very welcome at the both club nights and at any of the jam sessions.
Next jam session is Monday 19 November in The Crown & Thistle 8 to late.
Next club night is Monday 3 December in The Redfern 7:00 to 9:00 pm.
