It’s Saturday night, I am not out whooping it up or perhaps having even more fun practicing my latest favourite ukulele songs (sigh!). No, I am starting to get very bored with making new songsheets for our sessions . . . and then I found TUSC Songbook 7!
I can’t stop laughing . . . first at
“The People’s Songbook – for make glorious music ukulele benefit the whole world and Taunton.”
and then I found the Ukephallus Man!
Resisted the temptation to despoil the Angel of The North and went for nicking the TUSC Songbook byline for our Songsheets Index:
I will add this as an alternative index page for download as a pdf file on the Ukes4Fun Songsheets Page along with pretty versions of the index pages for each songbook.
Two generations of George Formby fans start their own George Formby Society Branch in South Shields.
It is the 50th anniversary of his death and the formation of the official George Formby Society.
Both James Bassett aged 7 who is one of the youngest members of the George Formby Society and renowned George Formby impersonator and ukulele teacher Colin Bourdiec have the support of the official George Formby Society to start this branch where the large repertoire of George’s songs will be sung, played and remembered here in the North East.
We anticipate Formby fans coming to the region from far and wide to support this venture.
The first meeting of this new George Formby Society, which will perpetuate the legacy that is George Formby, will be held at the Top Club in South Shields on Monday the 11th July 2011 commencing at 7.30pm and will be held on the second Monday of the month.
