One of the best things that happened to me this year was to find the Baltimore Ukulele Club. It’s a fun, supportive group that embodies what it means to be a musical community.
To start off the new year, the Club is having a Virtual Open Mic Session today. I thought I’d record one of my favorite songs, “Tonight You Belong to Me.” At this point, I think it’s considered a part of the standard repertoire. It’s been recorded multiple times before, and has been included in the Steve Martin comedy, The Jerk.
My version is a bit less polished, but I hope you enjoy it nonetheless. Happy 2017, everyone!
Once a month, I lead a ukulele club at the Aberdeen branch of the Harford County Public Library. It’s from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM. If you don’t have a ukulele,
To be honest, it started almost as a whim. I wanted to play with some people — just to have some social time around the ukulele. So I approached the library, and they were excited about the idea.
It actually had the touch of serendipity. The library had just started a musical instrument program, and that included several Lanikai concerts! So, if you’d like to try an instrument out before purchasing one, that’d be a good way to do it.
We’ve been meeting since October, and it’s been a lot of fun. The group is very beginner friendly. We go over chords, basic strum patterns, and then apply them to different songs. Please feel free to come!
