Another Folk Fest has almost come and gone with much great music, jamming and ukuleles. Our Ukulele for Beginners workshop yesterday at the festival brought us together with a few old friends and many new ones. It promises to be a good year of jamming and all are welcome on Sundays, from 12 – 2 at T.K. Maguire’s, downtown at the Prospector Hotel (behind KTOO and the State Museum construction site.)
As promised, below are the links we mentioned at the workshop. If you find other links you want to share, please add them in the comments or let me know and we’ll get them posted. Safe trip home to everyone visiting from out of town and we look forward to seeing some more of you locals at a jam some Sunday soon!
You can find basic chord charts by doing and image search for “ukulele chord chart” and finding the one you like best.

Free Songbook Downloads
(When I traveled to England this past winter I came across two ukulele sing/play along gatherings that both had songbooks online to download and bring to their weekly events. We have aspirations to do the same, but for now these are great resources to have.)
