2012 Ukulele Fest of GB: Saturday

Saturday’s proceedings revolved around Cheltenham’s Town Hall. The stage was graced with numerous talented British and international uke acts throughout the day. The clever Ukulolo / Virtual Krabbers duet was a favorite of mine.

Inside the “ukulele village” of vendors was a top place to hang out, test a swag of new ukes and generally shoot the breeze. If you’re a termnal UAS sufferer it was also the perfect place to part with some hard earned cash. Risa’s electric stick  is certainly a strange piece of kit:

I didn’t come away with a new ukulele, although certainly not for lack of models to choose from or drool over! But alas, I settled on buying myself a tin kazoo, hehehe! Talking of new gear, I also aquired a set of Ken Middleton’s new Living Water strings. Officially made in heaven.

I didn’t take as many photos as I would have liked – especially of the acts – as I was way too busy enjoying myself. Enough talk for now though, here’s the rest of my Saturday photos:

This charming email landed in my inbox last night:

We’re engaged! Weeeee! It happened last weekend under a lamp post on Salt Spring Island, BC. The right place, the right time, the right question… and the right answer! Wanted to share the news with you.

Warm wishes,

Oh and yes, I’m back. Sort of. Still a couple of boxes left to unpack and my internet access is patchy, but the move went smoothly. I’m settling very well into my new home!
