Kinky Ukuleles

Wed 1 Jun 2016 @ 9:00 - 16:00

£50.00

The songs of ‘The Kinks’ will be the focus for this innovative ukulele workshop run by Sally Vaughan who has delivered a number of popular ukulele courses at Dillington House over the past 2 years. When Ray Davies of ‘The Kinks’ penned his 60s classics he often cited influences from the music hall days of the 1920s when ukulele music was very much in its heyday. The chord progressions and arrangements of Kinks songs therefore lend themselves well to modern day interpretations on the ukulele, and the melodies and lyrics allow for some interesting singing harmonies and vocal effects. This workshop is suitable for all levels of players, although the ability to play the chords D, Dm, G, G7, A, Am, C and F comfortably is recommended. All you need is a ukulele and an open mind!
