Back after a summer break!

I’m back! Sorry about the gap. I’ve been off the grid for a month or so travelling through parts of Europe. One of my favorite places was Lake Balaton in Hungary, where travelled by tandem bicycle. I think it’s possibly one of the greatest ways to explore an area! While away I sampled local music, local food and lots of street entertainment, such a great time. Hope you all had a great summer (or winter, if you’re down south) too!

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:
