    Default 19th season of the Ukulele



    A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT
    Learn and sing a River song. This can be about a particular river or a river in general. I suppose even a metaphorical river would work. But somewhere in the song a reference must be made to a river.

    PARAMETERS:
    * your song must be about and/ or mention a river in it somewhere
    * ukulele front and center
    * state in your clip that the recording is for the "19th season of ukulele"
    * multiple versions of the same song are OK * one take, no overdubs

    LINKS TO SOME GOOD RIVER SONGS:

    JUDGING:
    This week there is a twist. There will be NO judging. For this week only each entry gets their name put in the hat. Even if bonus tracks are submitted (and I love bonus tracks ) the entrants name will be entered only once. Duets will get the name of the duet group entered - each entry = one name in the hat.

    At the end of the week 3 names will be drawn from the hat - I will make a video of the drawing. The three names drawn will be the winners of the 19th Season.


    DEADLINE: 11:59 PM HAWAII TIME, SUNDAY JULY 1st.

    PRIZES:
    1ST PLACE: The Ukulele: a Visual History by Jim Beloff. A beautiful uke book.
    2ND PLACE: A copy of A River Runs Through It by Norman Maclean.
    3RD PLACE: An audio CD of Johnny Rivers Greatest Hits

    Playlist for the 19th season is here: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL9CA2236C9CAC23E0

    So there you have it. A River Runs Through It. Have fun playing a River song for the 19th Season of the Ukulele.

    Oh thanks Ukelites for volunteering to host the 20th Season! Looking forward to it. It's so fun that the Seasons contests have just continued on. I'm curious to see how long we can keep it going - perhaps for the whole 52 weeks???

    Peewee, I'm secretly glad you picked up week 21. I was going to put myself out there to host week 21 based on an idea Ralf and I came up with, though I move the day that week starts and probably won't even have internet access for a day or two there. So good on you my friend, I look forward to your challenge. I will host a week sometime in the near future once this darn move is over and done with. Viva la seasons!
