By | Uncategorised

The Sawtell Ukulele Group will be coming along to celebrate Make Music Day with the Coffs Harbour Harry Bailey Memorial Library in the Rigby House Forecourt. Members of the public are invited to get hands on and join in for some ukulele fun. The Library will also be launching our new collection of Ukuleles, available to be borrowed by library members.

In only three short years, the Sawtell Ukulele Group has grown to include 3 groups (Beginners, Intermediate & Advanced) and over 60 members. Known for its diverse repertoire, from the Beatles to the Sunnyboys; Nancy Sinatra to Lady Gaga; Lou Reed to Kiss – this is definitely not your average ukulele group. SUG perform regularly at aged care facilities, community events and festivals; have a monthly Jam at 63 First Ave in Sawtell where new members are always welcome!
