We played a gig at Morecambe Library to celebrate the start of summer. Here's what happened.
So on Saturday 13th June 2015 Morecambe Ukulele Club played their second gig of the year at Morecambe Library, this time embracing the weather and entertaining the crowds with a "Summer Fun" plethora of musical artistry.
A multitude of songs were played and this time, compared to our last gig at the library focusing on the "Swinging 60s", we played songs from just about every decade; from the 60s to the noughties and beyond. There was plenty of singing along, and even some dancing from an exceptional young man with unparalleled levels of energy.
We also had a very special guest at our morning practice and during our gig. Zahra Lowzley is a truly exceptional musician and, as well as playing along with us during our 2 sets, also performed 2 solo pieces that blew both the crowd and the group away. She is currently touring the west coast of the UK cycling from town-to-town to raise money to put a Ukulele in a terminally ill child's hands. Every £30 she raises will give a child a ukulele that they will then own. It's a great cause and we were very proud to have her perform with us. We raised £75 in the bucket during our performance and the library gave us £10 from their book sales too, which was great! Thanks to everybody who came and supported us and donated.

We would like to extend a massive thank you to Morecambe Library for, once again, letting us play and looking after us. And also thank you to Zahra for the workshop before and for joining us at the gig.
