Welcome to Grafton Ukulele Musicians (GUM), a partnership between Apple Tree Arts and Grafton Public Library.  We meet the second Thursday of every month and our next meeting is January 11, 2018  from 6:30-8:00 pm. All levels are welcome and there is no fee. GUM. meets on the third floor of Apple Tree Arts, One Grafton Common.

Bring your ukulele and your singing voice to participate in this jam session lead by Miss Jan Barlow from Apple Tree Arts. Participants suggest the music and also continue to practice songs learned in previous sessions . We are using the Daily Ukulele — Grafton Library has copies to check out and brings some extras to the group.

Don’t have a ukulele? You can borrow a ukulele, as well!

Brush up on your strumming skills or learn new chords with the Ukulele Course online at ArtistWorks, for free! A library card is required to access.

Here are some of the songs GUM worked on last month and will do again:

Brown Eyed Girl (Van Morrison)
I Walk the Line (Johnny Cash)
I’ve Just Seen a Face (Beatles)
King of the Road (Roger Miller)
This Land is Your Land (Woody Guthrie)
We Shall Overcome (Ziphilia Horton)
