Ukuleles return to the Bute stage this Sunday

Now a firm staple in Bute’s music scene, the Argyll and Bute Ukelele Ensemble will be playing St Paul’s Church Hall this Sunday, October 21..

The group grew out of a beginner’s course offered by local musician Paul Templeman at Argyll College’s Rothesay learning centre four years ago, and now perform regularly throughout the year at various venues across the island.

During the past year they have played as support acts for Paul’s Transclyde headline acts, and alongside fellow local bands Groovecoaster and RISE.

Playing a varied and eclectic set list which often includes songs such as ‘I’m a Believer’ and ‘Stop in the Name of Love’, they’ve gained quite a loyal following on the island.

Joining the ensemble will be special guest Jack Burness, acoustic guitarist and harmonic player.

Jack has toured extensively throughout the UK during his career, taking his semi-autobiographical songs to the masses, and showcasing his often dry sense of humour.

For a wonderful evening’s entertainment, be sure to get your tickets - costing £10 - from Musicker or Rothesay Post Office.

Doors open at St Paul’s Church Hall at 7pm and all are invited to bring your own drinks - glasses and nibbles will be provided.
