Looking for Players


Hi All,

Looking for some players to play:

1) 30th November in George Square for GFW.  More details to follow when we have them.  Davie will organise this.
People in so far are, Frances, Craig, Neil, Alison, Ali2, Davie and Valerie. It is going to be in a marque so there will be plenty of room for us so we are not limited by numbers, just come along and have some fun. There is a plan, currently it is starting at 12pm and finishing at 2pm. Ourselves and the “yeuks” (it’s at times like this I wish I could spell Ukulele, may be one day…) are sharing the limelight. We will take turns at performing then helping to promote GFW handing out leaflets, looking happy etc. between 12 and 2pm every half hour we will play for 10mins then break for 20 mins and try to encourage passers by to join in. Then another 10min set and then 20mins of press gang duty. Repeat until 2pm. We will take turns between us and the uku’s not sure who is going to go first.

So if anyone has any preference for 2×10 mins sets of tunes, I think we should try our slightly more jolly uplifting tunes. The crowd are unlikely to be hanging around for the 2 hours so we could repeat the same 10 min set if that is what people want to do. Let me know any favourites you have and then I’ll ignore this and just pick my favorites anyway 😉

2) 17th December sometime between 4-6pm at Glasgow University Library charity fair for Alzheimer’s Scotland.  We can probably ask for the later slot if that suits better.  Valerie will organise this.  Who’s in?  Neil, Craig, Valerie, Maureen, Frances, Davie, Ian, Roy, Carol, Tom,  Des, maybe Alison S.  That should be enough folk but if you are really keen let me know.

Draft play list open to complete revamp as suits us  – please comment or email valeriemcc@hotmail.co.uk to say if there are tunes on there you feel uncomfortable playing or want to suggest others.
