A lovely day out in Dorchester…

Bank Holiday SUNSHINE actually happened!! Shock Horror! And even more excitingly we were able to enjoy it as both a band & punters – lovely stuff!

YesterdIMG_0394ay (Bank Holiday Monday) saw us take to the stage in an utterly beautiful setting right on our doorstep! The Dorchester Town Council held a free, family event which saw hoards of local residents set up camp (some quiet literally!) to be entertained with live music from 1pm – 10pm at the stunning Maumbury Rings.

We were first up & kicked off proceedings at ‘The Music Day’ with a lively, toe-tapping set which saw us ukuladies in our total element,  British countryside, a bevy of beautiful family & friends and sunshine! My highlight was all the little children dancing in front of the stage – we seem to appeal to the wee ones wherever we go – I think it is the magic of the Uke (& perhaps a similar mental age!)

It was an utter stonker, the English countryside at it’s best and a field full of smiley, happy people – you can’t beat it! Hope to see you all again next year!!


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.
