Time for a Got A Ukulele shout out to some friends of ours - the very lovely Ooty And The Cloud!
Ooty are a three piece based in Chester who play a delightful mix of self penned and cover songs in a very laid back, sometimes melancholic, but always pretty style that I like very much. You may have heard mention of them before on this blog as they attended the N'Ukefest this year and played an evening performance.

Ooty are made up of Stephen Fowler on vocals and uke, Rekha Fowler on penny whistle and melodica and Sally Gallagher on uke and vocals. I think they are refreshing as they have a sound all of their own - oh and they are a lovely bunch of people too! And that has been noticed as they have made it through to the grand final of the Cancer Research Talent show held at the prestigious Mitchell Theatre in Glasgow this November. Go Ooty!
And I am also delighted to report that before they are appearing as special guests of The N'Ukes at an evening of ukulele fun being held at the Halesowen Athletic Club on Saturday 30 November. Tickets are only £5 and details on how to get them are HERE. And if you don't Facebook, just email Lynn Raybould at firstname.lastname@example.org for details. The tickets have been selling like hot cakes, so don't delay - when they are gone they are gone. Promises to be a great night.
And, of course, please do check out the Ooty And The Cloud page on Facebook and give them your thumbs up!
