Ukulele Workshop

Featured

We’re delighted that Peter Luongo is visiting us on May 14th. We saw him in action last year and he’s got to be the best teacher of performing on the uke around, and he’s spent his career at the amazing Langley School in Canada teaching the likes of James Hill.
 
Peter writes: “My aim is to have the group play 2 or 3 arrangements that I’ll put together with them by the end of the session. I’ll be demonstrating vocal, instrumental, and picking techniques throughout…”

Ver Players Jubilee Concert

The Ver Players charity fund-raising concert in the lovely Jubilee Hall is always a highlight of our year, and we are delighted that Andy Eastwood will be our headline act. He is one of the biggest names on the UK’s ukulele scene and a brilliant performer!

There will also be solos by our support groups: Rag House, Teal and The Sunshine Band as well as the big Ver Players sing-alongs for everyone to join in on!

We are raising money for Earthworks St Albans:, a well-known local charity that offers trainees, often with learning disabilities or mental health issues, work experience and training in horticultural and land-based skills.
