Summer Jam

Thank you to everyone who came out to our Experimental Jam last week. It was a lot of fun trying a new platform and since we still have a free trial, I thought we can try it again for our next jam on Sunday, June 19th at 3 pm Saskatoon time.

I’ll also have my patio open for in-person playing but I’m not sure if the weather will cooperate. Please email me if you would like to join me in-person or if you have any questions.

SUP Experimental Jam

Our Experimental Jam will be on this Wednesday, June 8th at 7 pm Saskatoon time. What do I mean by “experimental”? For the summer, I thought it would be fun to throw in the odd jam during the week, especially since people get pretty busy during weekends this might be an opportunity to get more participation. People indicated on the survey that Wednesdays and Thursdays were the next best time so, let’s try it!

But we’re also going to try another experiment for this jam. Instead of Zoom, I want to try a new platform called Syncspace. Not only does it look neat (I love the graphic front door to enter) but in theory, we should be able to play together with almost no lag time. Musicians have been using Syncspace to perform in real-time as well as using it for teaching in real-time so I thought it might be something worth trying. Even if only a few players at a time play together and lead a song, that would be a huge difference in our jams.

If you are interested in joining us for this jam, please email us at [email protected]

SUP May 1st Jam

I hope everyone had a lovely Easter break! It’s time to get back to some music now though. Our next jam will be on Sunday, May 1st at 3 pm Saskatoon time. We will be on Zoom but I may also open my backyard for this jam if the weather decides to cooperate. If you’re interested in joining me live, let me know so I know who to contact if we do go ahead with the in-person portion.

I know I had a plan for a uketorial for this session but I just want to get back to jamming. So, no theme for this one. We’ll just play whatever we feel like playing. I’ll have a package on our website of a few songs that we’ll play for sure. If you want to lead a song, please let me know before Saturday morning so I can include you in the music pack

Travis Picking Uketorial

The uketorials are back! Yes, this Sunday, our awesome Pam Woodsworth will be taking us through a fingerpicking style known as Travis picking. The handout is available for download on our website saskatoonukulele.com.  

Following this jam, we will take a little break for the rest of April. Hopefully, when we reconvene in May, the weather will be warm enough to start meeting outside again.

SUP Mother Earth Jam

Our next jam will be on Sunday, March 20th at 3 pm Saskatoon time. Don’t forget that Saskatchewan does NOT change clocks so please adjust your login accordingly. March is International Women’s Month and the 20th is the Spring Equinox so any songs about spring, the Earth, or written by women would fit in perfectly for this jam. Send in your PDFs by Friday night to [email protected] and I’ll post the music package here on Saturday.
