Del Rey Played Newcastle – and won our hearts! @thecumby

Another wonderful workshop and fantastic performance by Del Rey at The Cumberland Arms on Wed 2nd September!

Keith Perry very kindly took group photo’s before the Ukulele Workshop and Aaron Tucker snapped away indoors!

There were over forty people at Del’s guitar and ukulele performance – the biggest turnout so far!

Some of the comments posted online, from people who travelled from across the north east and Cumbria:

“Went to see Del Ray at The Cumberland Arms in Byker the other night. I thought it was brilliant.  Mesmerising”

“Thoroughly enjoyed it last night . . . Del Rey, what a talented lady and a good sense of humour!! Looking forward to next year and finishing my “homework!!”

“What a great night!”

“Truly awesome – you had to be there!”

Many thanks to everyone who took video and uploaded it to YouTube – especially to Paul Hurrell, who not only captured Del’s “Workshop Highlights” but all of her performance!

If you came to the Manitoba Hal or Del Rey Workshops last year then you will be familiar with “Ukes4Fun Workshops and Events eNews”.

This is a MailChimp eNewsletter that we send out with notice of new events. Once you have signed up for a specific event, we also send out any updates in a special eNewsletter for participants.

  • You do not need to attend Ukes4Fun sessions to come along to these events

The eNewsletters are fancy pieces of work – see the Manitoba Hal eNewsletter.

The actual “eNews sign up form” page was very boring though – so I have jazzed it up!

Take a look – hit the “Join Our Mailing List” Button on this page and sign up if you want to go on the eNews Mailing list: http://eepurl.com/1k0wr

Do pass that link on to anyone else who you think might be interested!

ps. Del Rey might be coming back to do another workshop and performance later this year!  If she does (fingers crossed!) we will send out more info to everyone on the eNews mailing list.
