The Ukulele Union of Boston is hosting a special and super fun event on Thursday, March 14th from 5:30pm-7:30pm at the Lower Mills Library! This ukulele sing/play-along will feature songs from Ireland and include such classics as Dirty Old Town, Fields of Athenry, Wild Rover, Ride On and even songs from Irish bands like The Cranberries and U2.
If you play the ukulele you can sneak a peek a the songbook here!
There is a prompt 5:30 pm, so arrive beforehand to tune up and find a good seat. Afterwards, the group gets together for a drink at a nearby pub classic Irish style!
About Fun with Ukulele Series
To share our love of making music together, our group (based in Historic Lower Mills) will introduce the JOY of playing the ukulele in a group with a larger space with song lyrics and chords projected onto a big white wall.
Did you know that you can borrow a new soprano ukulele (in a soft case) and a clip-on tuner at the nearby Adams Street Branch of the Boston Public Library? Currently, it’s the only branch where you can do so.
The Lower Mills Branch of the Boston Public Library is providing light refreshments, including freshly popped POPCORN!! This is a FREE event, but we happily welcome your donation or contribution or sponsorship to support this once-a-month initiative and fundraise towards our activities for our home base at the Walter Baker Artist Lofts. Plenty of FREE parking on the street and lots of CVS / church directly opposite.
The library is also a short walking distance from the Milton T-station (Mattapan trolley from Ashmont on the Red Line) or any of the buses that stop on Dorchester and Washington.
What to bring
Ukulele + tuner. We will use the library’s projector to beam/project song sheets. • Important to know For links to our thematic songbooks, song sheets, mailing list sign-up, schedule, workshops and courses, please visit our website here!
