An Evening with Ukes Akimbo and friends

On Friday September 26th we are having "An evening with Ukes Akimbo and Friends" at the Dacre Hall Lanercost Priory (see pics below)

Friends so far are "The Zedro's" and "Feckless Fuddle".

I was wondering if anyone out there involved in a group or duo or solo would like to pop up and take part and be one of our "Friends"? It should be a great evening in a great venue. We could offer accommodation and a sandwich or two to anyone willing to make the hike up here? you could even pop into the shop (omega Music) and play some of our lovely Ukes!

Anyway it would be great to see, hear or see and hear anyone who's interested!

Cheers for now


Another beautiful day in Cumbria
