The group have been practising all through the lockdown via Zoom. For a short while last summer, they were able to play together on the Green, keeping social distancing, but this was short lived when greater restrictions were introduced. They used the down-time to extend their library of popular songs. Mostly from the 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s, such as a medley of Drifters songs, Pussycat and Engelbert Humperdinck, but also a more modern Ronan Keating song.
With the easing of restrictions, the group have returned to the Adderbury Bowls Club on Monday evenings to play outside on the patio, where they practice the songs from their repertoire. They clearly have a good time strumming and singing and are looking forward to playing in front of audiences again.
The Adderbury Ukulele Group plan to start a beginner’s class in September, providing restrictions are lifted. The class will be at 7.00 pm at the Bowls Club on a Tuesday evening with a second class at 8.00 pm if there are a lot of applications.
