I was stood with Harriet B. (Jam leader of Wukulele) sharing her song book as I'm to tight to print my own copy out.
Lawrie the U@D Jam leader announced, unilaterally as far as I could tell, that there was to be a Ukulele Festival in the pub in September.
During the beer break he approached Harriet B. and asked if she would perform at the festival.
Harriet B. seemed, or at least looked, unsure about the prospect so, in a fit of patriarchal phallocentricity, I offered to help her prepare something.
We've worked up a 3 song set:
- Puttin' on the Ritz
- Rum and Coke Cola
- There Ain't Nobody Here But Us Chickens
We've managed to get one 'proper' face-to-face rehearsal the rest of the time exchanging ideas via the electric-interwebs.
To test the act we grabbed the first floor-spot at last Saturday's Evershed Arts Folk Club, engaged Independent Film Maker Ned Ouwell, and did our most complicated (and shortest) song:
I feel, kazoo angle not withstanding, that went quite well.
Some top whistling and Bones playing from Mr. Dolittle BTW.
