About the Hope Ukulele Club

In May 2018, I went to the Hope branch of the Fraser Valley Regional Library, inquiring about a jam night for ukulele enthusiasts. There wasn’t one. However, the library had incorporated their Uke’n Play program and thought the idea was a good one. I had moved to town from Vancouver, and was a part of the Vancouver Ukulele Circle. The branch manager asked if I would take on the project as the group leader and use the library as the gathering space. I thought that Hope would love a ukulele group. I accepted!

I wanted to incorporate that same casual, comfortable, drop-in setting that most uke groups have – to make new members feel at ease. I created a songbook and had a little bit of ukulele-know-how so that new players could immediately participate. After a few months of space at the Hope library, the group then found a new home at the Blue Moose Coffee House.

Are you a beginner (or a never-done'r)? Don't worry! You'll find that the ukulele is a simple instrument to learn. In no time you'll have some basic chords managed and will be able to join in for some strumming fun!

Though I accepted this mission of leading the Hope Ukulele Club, I can't do it alone! I need members to bring their sense of humour and open-minds to our meets (as well as a ukulele)! Bring your own uke, or loan one from the Fraser Valley Regional Library!  Each month, we'll select a few songs to play to fill the hour. And trust me...that hour will go by fast! 

See you at our next meet!
