    Five years ago we were treated to an absolute master class in the Ukulele by James Hill and Anne Janelle. The coming together of James Hill and the Southern Ukulele Store is now stuff and legend. Finally in 2017 we will be doing it again!

    James Hill is a name that needs little to no introduction because if you have ever searched for the top Ukulele players in the world you will no doubt have run into him. When discussing this event with James and Anne; we were surprised to find a variety of different workshops available on various subjects and on this occasion James and Anne will be presenting a workshop entitled - 'Lyricism and Line: How to make the Ukulele Sing'.

    This will be a workshop for intermediate players and is limited to 30 spaces. Sadly, unlike some of our other workshops we will be unable to accomodate guests not taking part so if you contact us and try to book a spot please factor this in to your plans as I know sometimes our attendees bring along family and we do not want anybody to be disappointed. PLAYERS ONLY PLEASE!

    The workshop will begin at 4pm and last approximately one hour. Sadly, they will not follow the workshop with a gig but will be touring the UK around the same time for those that are keen to see the live show.

    We would love to see you there for the workshop - please contact Alex or Rob directly on 01202 430820 to book your space. This event will be free to our customers like the other events we hold in store but as spaces are so limited; please only get in touch if you know you can make it so that others do not miss out. Likewise, if your plans change and you can no longer take up your booked place; please let us know so we can release the space to somebody else.

    We are so thrilled to be able to offer this workshop. We can't wait to hear from you all.

    Please confirm your space on the phone and not on Facebook or by email with Alex or Rob - 01202 430820

    We're very excited to welcome Hal back to SUS. The last time he visited all the attendees went away with new blues riffs and chord patterns under their fingers. He promises more of the same this time around, so for an intensely authentic blues ukulele tutorial and gig, drop us a line and enquire about places.

    14:00 - 16:00Southern Ukulele Store

    I am ridiculously pleased to announce that the blurry-right handed Andy Eastwood will be putting in an appearance at SUS. Internationally renowned as a ukulele and banjolele virtuoso, Andy has built a formidable reputation as a player and instructor and will be delivering a one hour workshop followed by an hour long gig.

    Andy will be bringing a uke and a banjolele with him, and his workshop is titled "Technique Troubleshooter". At the beginning he will ask the attendees what kind of issues they have when playing and offer up some tricks and techniques to help practice them effectively.
