As most of you know I am a huge Amanda Palmer fan. On September 14th she finally came to Vienna again for her current “There will be no intermission” tour. I don’t want to do a full review of her show – or better shows. But since it was a very emotional ride for me, I do want to write a little bit about it.Continue reading “Amanda Palmer live”

I introduced you to the fraud police in my blog post about my ukulele retreat last September. And back then I made a note, that “Fighting the Fraud Police” might be a good song inspiration and it was.

Last weekend I spent two days in a remote but very lovely little village in Lower Austria for a ukulele workshop weekend.
Elisabeth Pfeiffer was our host and teacher (if you don’t know her I strongly suggest you check her out). I already attended most of her workshops at least once. It’s always nice to hear them again though, not just because she switches up the way she teaches things, but also to make sure that my brain hears certain things again and again and finally starts remembering it. The workshops ranged from basics to finger picking and power chords with a strong focus on Blues.
