Grafton Ukulele Musicians – join us for the next session April 12!
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 Thursday April 12, 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!
