Ukulelehoo

Tomorrow will see me spend most of the day at the inaugural Ukulele Hooley, the first ever Irish International Ukulele Festival, in Meeting House Square in Temple Bar. Doors open at 2:30 and things don't wrap up until late in the evening, with workshops and performances galore. Tickets are a reasonable €15 for eight different artists and groups including Ukulelezaza, The Uke Box, Peter Delaney, Gus & Fin, Winin Boys, Vertigo Smyth, Steven Sproat, Andrew Robinson and The Ukuhoolies.

It is important to point out that I am not a ukulele player, nor do I have a particular love of the instrument, but many of my friends have a strange affinity for it, and if the weather holds it promises to be a fun day out.
