Spring is a comin’ (pleeaasse?!)

Hello Loves,

We have the feelings of spring in our bones, exciting times a comin’, new adventures to be had and lots of weddings and gigs lined up. If only the weather would agree with us! We love a bit of snow as much as the next, but we really do feel ready for a bit of spring warmth and sunshine. We have been reminiscing about the Olympics, the busking, the festivals and the many gigs we played last year, we are craving flip-flops, brown freckly noses and playing our music outdoors again. The summer of 2012 really was epic for TTWU and 2013 is shaping up to be just as fun packed!Daffs

Earlier this month we auditioned for the Portland Port Cruise liners, to play for the passengers as they return from their on land adventures and re-board the ships. We’re very excited to say that we got the gig and we will be spending a good part of our summer months ahoying and celebrating all things nautical TTWU style (meaning we’ll be learning  a few sea shanties and getting our best vintage stripes on!)

In other news, we played at a gorgeous vintage wedding fair at Bristol Zoo last week and what a beautiful day it was. So many amazing exhibitors showing off their remarkable skills, so many excited brides with their friends and families; we loved being a part of it. We played on and off all morning and got chatting to many who loved the vintage tones and the variety of our music. We are very much looking forward to each and every one of the weddings that we have been booked for and here’s cheers to the next fair.

We will be updating our gig list soon and uploading some new videos, so keep your eyes about you for plenty of TTWU action in the coming months.

With Love xx

About tiltherewasuke

Take two music loving ladies. Brew a friendship for twelve years. Add a quirky instrument. Stir in an idea. Leave to stand for a couple of months. You should be left with a duo who call themselves 'Til There Was Uke. A Vocal/Ukulele duo featuring Lucy Broddle on Ukulele and Stacey Rae Hobday on Lead Vocals. With our blend of original arrangements, whistle solos, creatively inspired looks and attention to detail we hope to entertain our audience with a mixture of well know and long forgotten classic tunes that have been administered with the TTWUke treatment! That treatment takes many guises and ranges from an old school Greenday standard with a time signiature change twist to an Amy Winehouse number sprinkled with a latin feel.
