Ukulele Strum-Along



First Saturday of the Month at 10:30am

Grab your ukulele and join us for The Strum Shop's 'Free Monthly Ukulele Strum-Along' lead by Dennis Fisher along with Phil and Tina Smith. All skill levels encouraged and welcome. Song leaders will provide playing tips and tricks while we sing fun and familiar songs - golden oldies, classic rock, seasonal and a Hawaiian song or two, are all part of the mix. We share songs (along with chords and words) up on our big screen but you can nestle up to your neighbor and share their music if you don't have your own book (The Daily Ukulele Songbooks - Available for purchase at The Strum Shop). It's cozy and fun!! Bring your uke and your voice and join us for a fun time.
