Another fun-packed show last night onÂ Chorlton FM 87.7. Thanks to everyone who sent in tunes & to David for playing live in the studio (even if he did sing a rude word!).
If youâ€™re in Manchester, you can catch David along with last weekâ€™s guestsÂ Pyjama Party playing live at Dulcimer in Chorlton tomorrow night (Wed 25th May).
Big thanks as well to everyone who got involved & generally supported the show. It really wouldnâ€™t have been the same without you all.
Apparently there have been some problems with the listen again feature, so I will be putting the shows up online myself once Iâ€™ve got hold of the audio. And I will do it this time, I promise.
So thatâ€™s it for another year, for Chorlton FM anyway (though they are still broadcasting until Sunday night). At least you donâ€™t have long to wait for your next fix of ukulele music -Â Uke Hunt podcast #8 will be up next week onÂ my favourite website featuringÂ Helen Arney live in session!
Don’t forget to tune in for Ukulele! Part Two, tomorrow night (Mon 23rd May), 8-9pm on Chorlton FM 87.7 in the Manchester area or you can listen online. Regular listeners of the podcast will recognise David Leach who will be playing live in session, huzzah! If you’ve not heard him before, check out Uke Hunt podcast #2 to find out what he’s all about.
Jam packed with sexy ukulele music, including an exclusive from Helen Arney, tunes from Craig Robertson, Spring Breakup & Tricity Vogue, who all have new albums out, a new track from our favourite newcomer Ukeâ€™s Not Dead plus plenty more besides.
I know it’s been a while since I last posted. I set this site up in the midsts of my dad dying. I thinkÂ subconsciouslyÂ I knew I had a long winter ahead and I wanted to give myself something positive to concentrate on when I returned home. Now I am home, I’m taking things really slowly but I am spending a lot of time in the studio, so you can expect to see this site developing at last. This is a song I wrote during those last weeks with my dad. It’s also the first outing of the Horncastle melodica.
Well, itâ€™s about time I had my own site. A proper site I mean, so here I am. Iâ€™ve hadÂ a scrapbook on Tumblr for a couple of years now, which I love and will continue to maintain. A girl still needs somewhere to rant and post pictures of cats. This site is more about me & my music making, somewhere I can blog in more depth. I will probably write about other musical things along the way. It’s going to take me a while to get used to things around here so bear with me.
Speaking of music, hereâ€™s a demo of a new song I just recorded.Â Itâ€™s a bit rough around the edges and features some Les Dawson style playing on my newly acquired toy accordion (pictured).
I had no idea what notes I was playing but there’s something about it that I like, so I’ve kept it in for now.
