After the loss of her singing voice in 2007, Sam Brown (Stop, Jools Holland, Pink Floyd ) had to find a new way to earn a crust! Some friends wanted to learn the ukulele, and so she began teaching in her front room!
Interest ballooned, and now there are 4 ukulele clubs, with over 100 members in total.
The first club was The International Ukulele Club of Sonning Common. The IUCSC have played on albums and played at Cornbury Festival.
The second club was the North London Ukulele Collective. This is now a self run club, with monthly workshops with Sam.
The 3rd club was The Peoples Ukulele Brigade. The largest club, and certainly the most rambunctious!
The most recent club is The Jumping Flea Club.
The Fabulous Ukulele Clubs play music spanning the last 100 years, and they are not to be missed. The ukulele never fails to lift the spirits, for the player AND the listener.
