June 2018 - an update from Susan Zappert, our Director of Music

In addition to our weekly practices, the ukes have been quite busy over the past three months, out and about in the local community.   We entertained the ladies of Banchory Ternan West Guild who showed themselves to be the best and most enthusiastic singers we'd ever had as an audience.    Next we cheered up the Aboyne Ladies Probus after their AGM.    We had our regular quarterly visit to play for a Tea Dance for the Forget Me Not Club at the British Legion - this event is always very popular with the all the uke players since we get sandwiches and sausage rolls at the tea break!   Our most prestigious event was to play at Kincardine Castle which was open as part of Scotland's Open Gardens Scheme.   This was one of the very few wet days so far this year but we were able to shelter beneath a castle balcony and the rain stayed off whilst we played.    Finally, last weekend, some of us went to Insch Parish Church to take part in a concert in aid of the Church Funds and the local Scout group.     We continue to practice over the summer but no more activities are planned before the autumn.   We'd always be pleased to see new players - no experience needed - on a Wednesday afternoon at 2pm in the church.
