Last weekend I attended “Grand Northern Ukulele Festival” (GNUF) for the first time. I had a bit of a rocky start with my checked bag feared to be lost and my rented apartment not being ready and access codes missing. So to be honest I did not get to Huddersfield in the best of moods. Additionally the weather was awful – really cold and lots of rain (but then again, I kinda expected the rain in England 😉 ). Anyway, here’s a very long blog post about the whole experience.Continue reading “Grand Northern Ukulele Festival 2019”
Hello my lovely ukuleleists,
I thought I should give you little heads up on my ukulele travel and workshop plans this year (or at least for the first half of the year). These are the things I already booked:
On September 8th the 4th Vienna Ukulele Night took place at “Schutzhaus Zukunft” in, well Vienna 😉 It was the first time I attended and very exciting for me, cause I wanted to play my first open mic…
I know I’m a little late to the party, but setting up my blog took a bit longer than I expected (been working on it since June), sorry for that. But I still want to do a little recap of the 2nd Austrian Ukulele Festival, even though it already happened in May. Continue reading “2nd Austrian Ukulele Festival”
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.
