Tune Army Songbook 04

Yep that title is correct, after months of promising I've finally finished Tune Army Ukulele Songbook 04. Thats another 15 songs taking our list to 60. Please print it out before the next meeting, there is a good mixture so everyone should find something they like.

If some of the titles are unfamiliar look them up on youtube, but don't expect the key of the song that I have in the book to match whats being played, if it does its purely by chance ;)

As per usual all our songbooks can be found here Tune Army Song Archive

Tune Army celebrates with the W.I.

Monday the 15th Feb 2010 saw the Tune Army put on their first gig as a birthday celebration for the Whickham branch of the Womens Institute. By all accounts it was a huge success with the ladies enjoying a sing along to a mixture of old time classics and modern pop.

Many thanks to the W.I. for being lovely hosts and filling the bellies of our hungry group and congratulations to the Tune Army for putting on a great show.

Alan has sent a few pics which I've cropped and shrunk to fit these pages, enjoy :)
