Please come join us in Midland, Ontario, for an amazing weekend of ukulele fun on the shores of beautiful Georgian Bay!!
Just a 5 hour drive from Ottawa across some of the prettiest countryside. An eastern Ontario ukulele convoy!
There will be a Friday and Saturday night concert, workshops, open mics, and lots of jamming, including jams led by Mark and me!
Guest artists this year are the incredibly fun LUCKY UKE band, and Stu Fuchs! Can't rave enough about these musicians! Lucky Uke is the band that BUGs joined onstage at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal in 2011, when we briefly broke a Guinness World Record for most ukuleles playing a song together - 1200 ukers!
Check out the Midland Uke Fest website for info about the artists, ticket sales, and accommodations:
Note: The wacky, wonderful, late night pyJAMa Jams (yes! You're welcome to wear your pyjamas and slippers!) will once again be led by Mark and me, but this time we'll be at the Quality Inn & Conference Centre, 924 King St., Midland. They have a great big room for the jam that will easily accommodate everybody! We'll project the songsheets on a big screen. If you're booking a room at the Quality Inn, or at any of the festival hotels, the booking code is UKE FEST.
WHEN: Friday to Sunday, May 18, 19, and 20, 2018
WHERE: Midland Cultural Centre, 333 King Street, Midland ON
CARPOOLING: Ottawa folks, if you need a drive, or if you have space in your car and want someone to share expenses, please email me and I'll try to make connections.
WHAT TO BRING: ukulele, kazoos, any of your own songsheets for songs you might like to play at open mic or for impromptu jamming with friends, music stand, and be prepared to party!
Hope to see you all there!
