Lovely to have the ukes with us for 45 minutes or so last night. “Time After Time” needs work but most of the other pieces sounded really great. They will be joining us for five of our numbers for the Food Festival on 12th May (see below). For the next couple of sessions we will be concentrating on our programme for the Food Festival, and next week we will be singing Up Above My Head, Things, Time After Time, Leko Hode Nedo, That Lonesome Road, Java Jive and Isa Lei.
