Per his request, we are passing along this message for our fearless leader, Moses, who heads up one of our favorite groups, Northern Virginia Ukulele Ensemble:

All uke aficionados, howzit?? Too busy or not your workshop? Pass it along
your network of uke buddies!! And please do read on...

Lots of uke workshops coming up over the next 6 weeks. There's even an
incentive to attend all these workshops, courtesy of Marcy Marxer and the
Ukulele Social Club! More information on this incentive at the end of this

First up is Jim D'Ville and his "Play By Ear" workshops at House of Musical
Traditions in Takoma Park, MD. His Part 1 is for all levels of ability and
Part 2 is for advanced beginners and up. It's Saturday, 8 Oct. Here's the
catcher, we've been promoting this for a while and if you're the
procrastinator, don't! Theres only 5 seats left in workshop Part 1, and 6
seats left in Part 2. Each workshop is $25, both for $40. Details are at
this link: http://hmtrad.com/lessons/workshops.html#ukebyear.

Second up is Dr. Bryon Yatsui. A ukulele virtuoso who is giving an ukulele
clinic on 23 Oct in Derwood, MD. This is a private residence of Marv and
Kathy Reitz. He can dazzle you with anything from classical to jazz to
traditional Hawaiian music. Also $25. Seating is limited and you need to
contact Marv or Kathy at (301) 670-6716 or email at reitz@verizon.net to
reserve your seat. Details of this workshop can be found at

Lastly for this nearly back to back line up is Lil Rev. Details are still
being hashed out for House of Musical Traditions will be 11 Nov, 7:30 -
9:30pm. For some current information please go to:

This is a workshop and concert. If you've never heard or taken a workshop
from Lil Rev, you need to make time for him. He's great at old time, blues,
and can teach you all the strums and licks to go with that genre of music
(of course not all in one workshop, but enough to give you a whole year's
worth of ukulele homework).

So, what's the incentive to go to all of these workshops and what do you
have to do? Go here to read all about it:

You have to print off this web page, register for each workshop, get the
artist to authograph your page, then submit it back to Marcy per
instructions at that link.

Don't delay, the first one's around the corner and there aren't that many
seats left.

See y'all 'oer yonder -- since Takoma Park and Derwood, MD are that
direction from Manassas, VA...

Christine, Sorry to say we're only able to make it to one of the three.. But, we'll see you at Dr Bryon Yatsui's workshop. Looking forward to it.

Also, are you coming to the "Go For Da Record" Support Party on Oct 22?
