BOO! Cannonborough/ Elliotborough Neighbourhood Parade

It's that time again folks! On Saturday, October 29th, 6pm, please muster for the neighbourhood parade! We'll gather between Cannon and Spring streets on St. Philips---(that's near Hope and Union Coffee), with costumes and instruments, then march en masse to the Line Street Park for festivities up 'til 9pm. The South Carolina Broadcasters will be playing at the park as well as your friendly local neighbourhood Noodle and the V-Tones. Fun and games, community hobnobbing, food trucks, special guest stars, and general merriment shall erupt. Be there!

Swing Dance: Pure Gold

On Friday, October 21st, y'all can enjoy the golden experience of dancing to a live (and I must say quite well-practiced) band at the Friday night swing dance. The Roaring Twenties Hot Jazz Dance Club puts on a dance every week at the Spirit Moves Dance Studio and I'm very happy to be playing for it this time around! This week's theme is 'Pure Gold', with an advanced lesson at 7:30, beginner's at 8pm, followed by live music at about 8:30. All this plus snacks for only $10!!! It's always a fun and relaxing time, so put on your fancy threads and comfortable shoes, and get those feets a movin'!

UKULELE FESTIVAL!

Thursday, Oct. 13th, join the Lowcountry Strummers Ukulele Club for a workshop with Jim Deville. He'll be teaching how to play 'off paper' at 7:30. The cost is $25. I met Jim years ago at Artichoke Music in Portland Oregon, when my gal Eden was so charmed by him that she bought a pink ukulele. He's got a great reputation, and I'm encouraging all ukesters of all levels to attend. Check the Lowcountry Strummers google blog for information.

Saturday, Oct. 15th, the Strummers hoist the Blackwater Ukulele Festival at Cypress Gardens. The festival is an all day affair with a beginners' workshop in the morning (that's presented by your friendly neighbourhood Noodle at 11am), a Hula dance class, open mike, uke boat rides, and music in the afternoon by the Charleston Hot Shots and the V-Tones. We 'Tones go on at 4:30. There'll also be ukulele vendors and of course, the fabulous and beautiful gardens. Last Spring's uke fest was fantastic, and I expect this will one will be as well. Uke are not alone!
