Hot Jazz and Blues with Del Rey and Adam Franklin! 6 June ’17 | @thecumby

Back by popular demand!

The Fabulous Del Rey returns to Newcastle on her 2017 UK Tour!

“Whilst known for her amazing instrumental skills … it should not be overlooked that Del Rey always provides a very entertaining show, full of variety, drama and humour.”
Blues In Britain

“Del Rey is one of the greatest modern players of the metal-bodied resonator guitar.”
Acoustic Guitar Magazine

“Del Rey is one of the most sublime modern guitarists.“
La Hora del Blues Barcelona

This time with the Amazing Adam Franklin!

“Britain’s best kept secret!”
Steve James, USA

“Like a cross between Robert Johnson and Joe Strummer!”
Two Rivers Folk Festival, Wales.

“Franklin’s exemplary resonator picking and slide playing demonstrates a dedication to the instrument that would be the envy of some of the legends he emulates”
Record Collector Magazine

“Adam knows enough about old-style blues to be worth listening to and is irreverent enough to be exciting.  He’s got the beat, you won’t be bored.” 
Del Rey, USA

1. Ukulele Workshop: Hot Jazz Rhythm Picking

Adam Franklin is a fantastic tutor, as anyone who has attended his Workshop on “Hot Jazz Rhythm Picking for Ukulele” will testify!

  • In this workshop you will learn some easily remembered picking patterns and how to use them to provide a solid rhythmic foundation to ANY song in ANY style – not just “hot jazz”!
  • Whether you are a beginner or a more advanced player, you will find this technique a very useful tool to add that “extra something” to sing-alongs and jams!
  • Chord charts and Finger-Picking Tabs for “Dr Jazz” will be provided – leave a comment on this post if you have booked a place and would like copies in advance!

2. Guitar Workshop: Moving Bass Lines

After Del Rey’s last performance, guitarists in the audience asked her if she could come back to run a Guitar Workshop. So that is what Del is going to do for us this time, focussing on “Moving Bass Lines”!

  • Want to play like a pianist? Walking and boogie-woogie bass lines for fingerstyle guitar! Learn the positions where you can find both chords and  moving bass.
  • Intermediate-Advanced Level.  Standard tuning. Recording permitted.
  • Skills Needed:
    • You will need to be comfortable holding partial chords while moving a bass line, and with switching fingers to maintain a position.
    • No barre chords involved.
  • Who will benefit from this Workshop:
    • Any guitarist with these skills who would like to expand their sound in blues and jazz will learn useful vocabulary and ways of using chords they already know.
    • Fingerpickers and players with good fret-hand strength will get the most benefit.

3. Hot Jazz and Blues Concert

Del Rey and Adam Franklin Resonate! Jazz and Blues Duets, swapping instruments and vocals!

Del and Adam often run workshops and perform together in the South of England when Del is in the UK.  We are so pleased to bring them up to the North East to run Guitar and Ukulele Workshops and perform for us in concert!

The Sage Ukulele Classes – now on Wednesdays!

Great news – The Sage has moved the adult ukulele classes from Thursday to Wednesday, in order that people can attend both The Sage classes and Ukes4Fun!

Dates and times for the Sage classes starting in September are in the clips below, with links to further details. (The “Absolute Beginners Uke” classes on 25 and 26 Sept are sold out already, I am afraid.)

I could not find a page with details of the “Silver Ukuleles” dates and times but it says on The Sage website:
“Silver Ukuleles – there are different groups and workshops available for the varying standards of Ukulele players. Any enquiries or questions please phone (0191) 443 5034 or contact silver@thesagegateshead.org

The “Silver Programme” classes and events are for the “over-50’s” and the adult classes are for all ages.

Sally Kat, Head of Learning and Participation Business Development at The Sage Gateshead, has just taken over managing our Adult learning programme. She has been in touch to say that she’d, “love to find a way of us working together, so that people can play the uke in as many different ways and places as possible. With regard to the focus of our classes, they are very much geared towards “teaching” the uke i.e learning chords (with the proper names) and technique as well as building confidence and repertoire. I think this might be quite different in feel to the sessions you offer and hopefully would complement your sessions rather than competing – which is what I am trying to achieve!”

Sally and Ian McKone, Ukulele Tutor, hope to be able to come along to one of our sessions soon, to meet us and have some uketastic-fun!

Some of you might also know Ian in his capacity as wizard-fiddler and ace-acoustic-guitarist and all-round good chap. Though he has nicked my Uke-Chords Crib-Card, so I think he might find that he owes me a pint of Rapper.
