This year we have 5 great workshops on offer. Have a look below to see who is doing what and make sure you check the times so you don’t end up booking 2 that are on at the same time. Please note: you will need to have a Full Festival Ticket to participate in the workshops.
Workshop 1 - 10.00 am - 50 mins Phil Doleman - Jamming Essentials
Discover the secrets of jamming and ditch the song sheets! Learn common progressions, what to do if everyone is playing in a different key, and loads of tips, tricks, and shortcuts that’ll have you playing loads of great songs without having to go searching for the chords on the internet! Skill Level: Beginner – Intermediate
Workshop 2 - 10.00 am - 50 mins Opera-lele - Singing & Strumming
Ok, so we all know the form. You decided that you fancied learning an instrument and the ukulele seemed cheap to buy and easy to start. BUT – you never realised there would be so much singing! George & Mandi from Opera-lele will teach you some tips and tricks about singing while you play. Wear loose clothing and bring your ukes! Skill Level: Beginner – Intermediate
Workshop 3 - 11.00 am - 50 mins Andy Eastwood - Focus on Formby
Andy Eastwood lifts the lid on the famous syncopated style of George Formby, unravelling the complexities of the ‘split stroke’, the ‘triple’ and the ‘fan’. Whether or not you wish to play the songs of the Lancashire legend, this is an informative masterclass to enhance your rhythmic technique! Ukes and banjoleles welcome. Skill Level: Intermediate & Experienced Players
Workshop 4 - 11.00 am - 50 mins Mother Ukers - Inside Ukular Fusion
Our workshop will see us deconstruct a song and then transform it in to one of ours. We will explain how we create the rhythms and decide on the bass and lead parts. At the end of the workshop we will have a completed song that we would then like to perform with the attendees during our evening performance. Skill Level: Beginner – Intermediate
Workshop 5 - 12 noon - 50 mins Del Rey - Ukulele Blues Party
Jugband and blues songs orchestrated for the ukulele, with playing and singing parts for several levels of player. We’ll work on getting that old- timey sound on your uke, with the right rhythm, chord positions and where to find the melody. Plus we’ll try and listen to each other and play together.  We’ll add parts for basic chords, strumming, picking and singing. Basic level: be comfortable and confident with first position chords and able to keep time while changing between them. By ear, no TAB. Skill Level: Beginner – Intermediate
