Twin Cities Ukulele Club
We are A Volk's Tour - A tour of music from and for the people.
Our jams are Music Tours geared for adult and teen beginners to advanced uke players, with an emphasis on keeping things simple so all can participate right from the beginning. The Twin Cities Ukulele Club jams are open to the public, and there is no required charge for the jams. The Twin Cities Ukulele Club jams are sponsored by Minnesota Bluegrass and Old Time Music Association. We play a broad variety of music styles with an emphasis on roots music - people's music.
- Need help playing the uke? Twin Cities Ukulele Club Friday Morning jams start with a half hour basic workshop 30 minutes before the scheduled jam start time. This is for new uke players or those who haven’t played uke much or recently. The whole idea is to introduce and practice chords, chord changes, 1 4 5, and other concepts to new or less experienced uke players before the jam.
The Twin Cities Ukulele Club holds MANY ukulele jams a month. We also occasionally perform at public events. For complete information - www.tcukeclub.com. Click here for the Twin Cities Ukulele Club Event Calendar (www.tcukeclubcalendar.com).
