FIDALGO UKE NETWORK JAM,1:10-2:40 bi-weekly Thursdays, is next on Sept 28, at the Anacortes Senior Activity Center.  For Thursday songlist, click “FUN JAM” in menu above, then “jam date”.  We start at 1:10 with easy 2, 3, & 4 chord songs; followed by  more challenging stuff.  Be there by 1:10 if you’d like some easier stuff.

Two Anacortes workshops are coming up: Kevin Carroll & Stuart Fuchs.  Our workshop prices of around $25 are really special; I see that Seattle prices are on the line of $40 per hour, so do take advantage of our workshop instruction here in Skagit county.

Kevin Carroll, coming September 25th to the Village Pizza!! Still Room for you!   Workshop: The Art of the Ensemble; How To Maximize the Sound of Your Ukulele Group.  All levels.  See CALENDAR for info.

He has launched a ukulele-based music education charity: edUKEcation.org which brings lessons & instruments to schools & students with limited resources.  Equally passionate about music, education & ukulele, he seeks to inspire & empower students to exercise their birthright of making music. Kevin is the creator of the Austin Ukestra.

Kevin’s scope of teaching includes Texas-based music, blues, soul, funk, slide ukulele, family music facilitation, ukulele ensembles, & beginners of all ages.  An Austin resident for over 20 years, he has played guitar & toured across the globe with Americana artists such as the Flatlanders (Joe Ely, Butch Hancock & Jimmie Dale Gilmore), Jimmy LaFave,  Alejandro Escovedo, Robyn Ludwick, Charlie & Bruce Robison.
