The world famous Come and Try Ukulele Workshop is coming to Cromarty in June!
Finlay Allison, leading tutor from the Glasgow Fiddle Workshop has been teaching uke workshops at Celtic Connections for the past 5 years and has been instrumental in spreading the popularity of this charming, wee and very portable instrument.
Were you lucky enough to get a ukulele for Christmas or for a special birthday? Do you have any idea what to do with it? Or do you just fancy giving it a go. This is the weekend for you. Even if you don't have your own inbstrument, Finlay will be bringing some with him. He will lead you some well known songs - definitely not 'When I'm Cleaning Windows' and you will be hooked. Life will never be the same!
For those of you who already play mandolin or guitar, Finlay will also be teaching workshops on the Sunday for more confident players.
