Aaron Keim leading a workshop with Ver Players, St Albans Ukulele Group, May 2016. Something special, in an hour we learned Cluck Old Hen: the chords, instrumental parts, verse and chorus, all without referring to bits of paper!
Our impromptu version of ‘Kiss’ by Prince, at our April practise session. We’ll do a few more of his songs at our regular get-together at the Hare & Hounds on 8th May (see events top right).
The ‘clarinet boys’ great addition to our uke session this month, here comes their instrumental break in ‘Button up your overcoat’ at the Hare & Hounds. Thanks Colin & Dave!

Ver Players is a community ukulele group based in St Albans. Founded in 2012, the group has grown to around eighty members of all ages, who meet once a fortnight to sing, play and unleash their inner creativity. The group alternates between small, focused sessions in St Albans’ The Courtyard Cafe and larger old-fashioned singalongs in the The Hare & Hounds, a local pub. It’s a fantastic opportunity for people to get together and experience live music.
Members typically join as complete beginners before quickly gaining confidence as they realise they can start to produce real music. The open, collaborative spirit ensures a fun and friendly atmosphere to learn, laugh – and ‘lose yourself in the ukulele’!
We also run a programme of ukelele workshops and can provide one-to-one teaching. To join us, take a look at the membership page.
