The Song of the Ukulele @ Benson Parish Hall | United Kingdom

This activities day is celebrating the many U3A groups in our area who enjoy playing the ukulele and giving them an opportunity to enjoy sharing the creation of music with their colleagues.

The TVN is fortunate in having Andy Carter for the leader and tutor on this day. Andy started playing the guitar in 1963, when he set up his own group in school. He continued playing in rock and pop bands in the ‘70s and joined a showband called “The Cockatoos” who travelled around the world, entertaining the troops. In 2011 he took up the ukulele, playing with a group in Haddenham and then he set up a beginners group in Aylesbury Vale U3A. A recent gig with the “Blue Moons” raised an impressive amount for charity.
