The Uke Ireland Christmas Party in Doheny & Nesbitts on Saturday night was a great bit of fun and nonsense! Thanks to everyone who made it happen by coming along and joining in (especially Shay Bagnall who was responsible for putting this “epic” together. We are definitely going to make it an annual event.
Happy Christmas One and All!
Original song by Peter Fritz Hermann, shared by ukulele players round the world in their own way.
“Who Can Draw A Line?”
(G)” Who can draw a line between right and wrong?
(A) Who can draw a line between right and wrong?
(B7) Who can draw a (Em) line between (B7) right and (C) wrong?
Can you (G) do it? Go and (C) do it if you (G) can. (D7)
Who can draw a line between young and old?
… north and south …
… east and west …
… weak and strong …
… false and true …
… near and far …
… good and bad …”
James Clem is a wonderful blues player I came across a couple of years ago and just love his version of this Robert Johnson’s classic ragtime number “They’re Red Hot” played on his National Reso Ukulele.
Fantastic performance from Jay & Christina Smart, who were on a busking holiday in Ireland when the redoubtable Barry Whiteside came across them and invited them along to the Ukulele Open Mic at the Shebeen tonight (November 30th).
They were a knock out and gave wonderful renderings of a few songs and the good news is that they will be back next year.
