Ukulele Workshop with the Uke-Ladys

Saturday 10 November
1.30pm & 5pm

Wauwi (Light Square), Adelaide

There’s something for everyone at this genuinely delightful workshop as Uke-Ladys Tara Carragher (Tara’s Guitars) and Nancy Bates join musical forces, sharing their love of the ukulele, and their philosophy of playing joyfully. Learn the basics of playing, and the mastery of having fun, as the Uke-Ladys reveal what Ukuleles are really about. You’ll even walk away with a free song book of your own.

The one hour FREE workshop is for beginners of all ages, with ALL INSTRUMENTS SUPPLIED. But if you’ve got your own little four-string lying around, you can guarantee this will be the perfect crowd to show it off too.
