We're nearing February,so those of a romantic mind may want to start learning or refreshing their romantic material. And- it's not too early to get into the Irish tunes & songs for those who are into St Patrick's Day.
My knee that I broke in October is mending well,and I've "graduated" to a cane. Hoping to be off that soon. One thing discovered once I had to use a walker was a new appreciation for small instruments,like the ukulele. I could carry my uke to different rooms of the house by having it in the gig bag and having it slung over my shoulder while using the walker. My other bigger instruments,like banjo and guitar,had to wait for me to be able to get around on two legs again before I could start playing them. I now see why giving a uke to someone in a hospital makes so much sense.
For those of you who are single and unattached,make the month of Feb. your month to indulge in your love of playing your uke,or give yourself the Valentines gift of another uke,or songbook,etc. You get the idea.
If there's any upcoming ukulele festivals I've accidently left off my list,do contact me and let me know!
