VIDEO: Bute’s ukulele ensemble returns to the stage

Waiting for Video...

Bute’s very own ukulele ensemble made a welcome return to the stage on Saturday, performing for the first time in 18 months at a charity fund-raiser in Rothesay.

The group’s short set included versions of It Must Be Love by Labi Siffre, Johnny Nash’s I Can See Clearly Now, Raining In My Heart by Buddy Holly and more, and concluded with a Black Country version of Gloria Gaynor’s 1978 smash hit, I Will Survive, which had the audience in stitches.

The ukuleles shared the bill with a group of five storytellers - Michael and Dominic Kerins, Ian Ferguson, Paddy Hanrahan and Rothesay’s own Alison Clark - at an event held to raise money for Scotland Language Action Towards Education (SLATE), a charity set up to inform, educate and improve the help of disadvantaged young people in Russia.
