Hi Everyone

Long time since our last newsletter but we have been very busy travelling to Europe and the UK not to mention other festivals in Oz.

The Scottish Festival was absolutely fantastic in Dumfries and we were lucky to attend the last Great Britain Ukulele Festival in Cheltenham.  We visited a ukulele group called “Highly Strung” where Val ran a two hour workshop and had a great strumming morning with the group.  Check out the photos and videos which will be uploaded soon.

Since returning to Australia we have hit the ground running and attended the Dorrigo Folk and Bluegrass Festival where we had a great workshop with “Twin Peaks”, a couple of Canadian girls who love to play the ukulele.  They were quite impressed with Val’s Banjolele and they recently performed at the Wingham Akoostik Festival.

We are getting ready to attend the Ukulele Jamboree at Riverwood Downs hosted of course by the Blue Mugs Ukulele Group and of course the highlight of the year in February 2018 will be the not to be missed best ukulele festival in Katoomba, Australia hosted by the Blue Mugs Ukulele Group where we will be performing as “The Strummers of Love” next year.

Happy Strumming
