Here’s a running list of ukulele events online that you can join, like Apr 2nd’s Will Groves-Smith event on facebook (if you missed it, here’s the replay (sorry, i couldn’t get it “clickable”, so copy and paste, the old-fashioned way. . .) https://www.facebook.com/UkuleleOrchestraofGB/videos/534852067216373/.
