The 5th Big Ukulele Xmas Singalong 2017

Well, what a whopper. It’s been and it’s gone, another piece of ukulele hustory here in Groningen, The Netherlands, way up north near the German border!

The 5th edition of the Great Big Xmas Ukulele Singalong (2017).

This year we filled the beautiful Club Lola (Groningen)  with our ukulele friends and sister club from Bremen, (the 1. Bremer Ukulelenorchester) and the ‘Coconut Knackers’ (our friends Dr. Dick and Ton) from Harderwijk (nl) and lots of other folks,,,   And of course the Groningen Ukulele Society.

Opened with a performance from the GUS, followed by performances by ‘Bremen’ the Coconut Knackers, UkeX, Anneloes Jager, Achem (dl), Bremen’2, Myrthe (nl) Anneloes and Simone and maybe more,(a bit vague – well – it was a party!).

Of course, the tradition continued with a 10 o’clock ‘Xmas Singalong Session’led by D’Clog & Friends.

Fun was had, ukes where played, songs where sung, alchohol was drunk, food was eaten, revelry and ukulele where the order of the day – in a jolly Xmas way..

A great success.  We think we’ll be doing it again.

A couple of photos of the evening can be found here – Xmas Ukulele Singalong photo’s 2017

You never know, maybe a couple of video’s will emerge later.

If you’re ever in Groningen and itching to uke – pop in for a visit – every second tuesday in o’ceallaighs Irish Pub.
