Uke East 2014

From one festival to another, I am pleased to pass on details for what looks like being a great event organised by and featuring some friends of mine on the ukulele circuit. Uke East!

Uke East Festival

Uke East takes place on 25 October at Hellesdon Community Centre, Norwich and has some great acts billed.

Sophie Madeleine is performing in her only 2014 live gig and will be a huge draw. Good friend Phil Doleman is also on the bill performing his superb finger style jazz styled set. Also billed are the Bijoux Toots, Liam Capper-Starr, Artemiss, Ben Rouse and the Norwich Ukulele Society.

Tickets are £16 and all profits go to the Musical Keys charity

Festival organiser Nic Rigby told me,  "We are hoping to bring some of the best musicians and songwriters from around Britain to Norfolk and at the same time help the wonderful Norwich charity Musical Keys.

"The festival should be a great celebration of music and not just a ukulele festival.

"To get Sophie Madeleine, in her only live gig of 2014, should be a great attraction, while Phil Doleman is one of top ukulele players in the country and will be also be running a workshop."

Sounds like a great one to check out. Details are on their website at
