There are some big milestones with this upcoming Jam. This is our 50th jam via Zoom. We have performed over 774 songs together via Zoom (with over 450 different tunes). We are also marking the 10th anniversary of our first Jam in 2012 at Chuckles Jack in Smiths Falls. The jam was led by Garry Crabtree and Bridget Baker who started the Lanark Ukulele Group. Thank you everyone for your participation and enthusiasm over the years. It is truly a joy to be a part of this group.
To celebrate fifty, we have added some songs released 50 years ago as well as “Fifty Ways To Leave Your Lover” into the set. We think you will enjoy the songs which will be lots of fun to play!
Our next zoom jam is on May 9th at 7:00 PM. As usual we will be starting the Zoom session at 6:45 PM and start strumming at 7:00 PM. The details for the Zoom meeting are as follows:
Topic: May 9th 50th Lockdown LUG

Most people enjoy the jams more if they practise the set in advance. We will be sharing the chords and lyrics during the jam but you can download a copy to practise. You can download a copy of the set list as a PDF from here:
For those with an iOS device and OnSong, you can download a copy of an archive copy of the set from here.
Finally for those with other song viewing software, we have linked ChordPro versions of the songs to the title in the Set List for you to download.
