Ukulele University

Our second annual Ukulele University was this past weekend.  What a blast!  The event went well, and my friend, Lori from Alaska came down for it.  I conquered my fear of stage fright and signed up for open mic.  A few of us have been working on learning "Roxy's Waltz," so we played it for everyone.

During one of the workshops, we also learned to play "Little Darlin" by The Diamonds.  The workshop leaders, The Refreshments, invited us up to play with them.  Video coming soon!  Emil recorded it.

Check out the pics!

Overall, it was a fantastic event!  Quite warm, but plenty of shade and water.  Looking forward to next year!  If you want to see more pics of the event, like the Ukulele University Facebook page.  I've posted tons of pics there.

Next posting:  pics from Lori's visit.  Many floats down the river, shaved ice, and breweries.
