Evelyn May & Stan Gee,
Cutty Wren Club, July 4th.´04
In 2010, Stan & Eve will be taking their Indepenence Day Celebration performance to the Guisborough Folk Club (at the Rugby Club) on Sunday the 4th. of July. This is a first at this venue! This is as well as their annual gig at the Cutty Wren Folk Club at the Duke William in Skelton. Because of the proximity, appart from a few tried & trusted favourites, they will be attempting a totally different program!
On wednesday the 7th of October 2009, Eve hosted the first meeting of the Cleveland Ukulele Fraternity. The venue was the Duke William at Skelton, which welcomed around a dozen & a half ukulele enthusiasts, comprising four members from the Darlington Ukulele Express club, some of the Cutty Wren Folk club regulars & a couple of my pupils. Eve & myself kicked it off with a couple of songs and I helped out as best he could despite suffering from a bad case of Shingles! Community style Singing/strumming seems to be the favourite activity, but we did manage to coax out a few solo & duo performances. It lacked a number of newcomers who promised to appear but didn´t, maybe next time? And there will be a next time! Scheduled for the 11th. of November 2009 at the same venue, and thereafter every 2nd. wednesday in the month. It has been Eve´s long held dream to have a Ukulele Orchestra, and this club is the first step! So whatever your level, come along and give it a try. You can borrow a Ukulele if you haven´t got one yet, and we will get you started!
