Wonderful workshop and performance by Mike Hind on Wednesday 30 Sept!
From Stage Fright to Spotlight! Here are Mike and some of the participants who banished their butterflies!
Who thought we were joking when we called for Mike to do “Bohemian Rhapsody” on the ukulele?
After the show, an impromptu treat in The Cumberland Arms Beer Garden! Iain Glencross aka “Hawaiian Shirt Racer“, previously the most stage-frit man on the planet, undertook a six-hour round trip by motorbike to come to the Mike Hind night – and aren’t we glad that he did!
Not forgetting lovely Lalya Gaye, who provided soothing ukulele-themed sounds from the Hello Montoya DJ Collective and then was first up in the spotlight to tackle her stage fright!
Kay Mortimer was next up, quickly corralling Michael Grant, also from The Angel Delights Ukulele Club in Wooler, to join her on stage – and didn’t they do well too!
Many thanks to everyone for making this such a great night!
