Ukuleles of the world unite!

Can it be that the world’s most popular musical instrument (in the 1920s) is back? After more than 80 years in the shadows, the ukulele (Hawaiian: gift, from here) is out of the closets and up from under the beds.
From Taylor Swift, Jake Shimabukuro (plays songs from Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody), Kama Kawi Woole (Somewhere Over The Rainbow), George Harrison (Beatles), Tiny Tim, Arthur Godfrey, and you, the ukulele is back and more fun than ever.
Come and see what it’s all about. A brand new thing is about to start: The Greater Greenbrier Valley Association of Ukulele Optimists has just started right in your neighborhood. We will be meeting on Thursdays at Carnegie Hall, classroom #2, in May and June, from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m.
The purpose of the group is to get people together 1) who would like to play ukulele with other such interested people (optimists!); and 2) who want to learn as a beginner, or, to brush up/advance their own “uke” skills.
The overall mission is to get together, beginners (even if you do not presently own an instrument) and advanced players, for the fun of some learning, some playing and some performing together.
It is all free, no experience necessary. We will meet weekly to get the club off the ground. (At this time this is for adults only.) Call us if you have any questions. Call Bob DuCharme at 804-357-5884, bobducharme@yahoo.com or Carnegie Hall at 304-645-7917.
