The very wonderful Fiona Clarke left a comment here on 10 July with the startling news that she had 67 ukuleles all over her house in preparation for a mass uke workshop. I am glad to learn that she survived the experience and she sends this report:
'Boy, am I glad I don't run an orchestra. The tuning, the constant fiddling about with instruments would drive me ROUND THE BEND!
'However, we had a great evening and there was much amusement to be had with G string jokes all part of the evening's entertainment. There were around 75 people there and those who hadn't ordered a ukulele were given a complimentary kazoo. We did the chords for Israel Kamikawiwo's Over the Rainbow and sang it through with the colours of the ukuleles being given a chord to play if they were unconfident with playing all six chords.'
Fiona sends this jolly picture of some of the merry ukers, adding cheekily: 'I hope your own plucking is giving you all the satisfaction you desire.' It certainly is, Fiona.
