A BIG THANKS TO EVERYONE FROM UKULELE HOOLEY 2013 !

Thanks to everyone for helping to make Ukulele Hooley 2013 the best we’ve had!

We were blessed by glorious weather and it was fantastic to see the Peoples Park packed with happy people enjoying the whole event
Thanks to all the fantastic artists for brilliant performances at the “Ukulele Hooley Concert” in the Peoples Park on Sunday – we were overawed by the generosity of spirit of you all.
Thanks to everyone (and there are many) who helped in so many ways to make it all happen.
Thanks to everyone who came to all the events over the weekend, Workshops, the Bus Busk, the Open Mic on Saturday night, and of course to the 8 hour “Hooley” concert in the Peoples Park!
A special thanks to all the friendly ukers who came from overseas – we loved having you and hope you’ll come to Ukulele Hooley 2014!
We’re all thrilled (and greatly relieved) that it went so well – just a bit knackered – but we’re really looking forward to seeing your videos and photos .

A special thanks to the folks at DLR Co. Co. who make the whole event possible with their support each year.

We are already being asked for the dates for Ukulele Hooley 2014 and as soon as we know – you’ll know!

Ukulele “Summer Vibe” – by Walk off the Earth (Original)

No matter what the weathers  like where you are, this is officially summer here in Ireland, (at least it was today!) so we’ve gotta have a summer  ukulele song  so how about this?  “Summer Vibe” by “Walk off the Earth”.

Walk off the Earth are a Canadian indie band formed in 2006 in Burlington, Ontario. The band’s cover of Gotye’s ”Somebody That I Used to Know” using only one guitar went viral in early 2012 and gained over 124 million hits onYouTube.
