Hoping to hit the right notes with new group

A NEW ukulele group is looking to launch in Daventry.

With ukulele groups springing up all over the country as the instrument becomes more and more popular, Barry Nash, from Charwelton, wants to get a group going in the Daventry area for musicians of all abilities.

He said: “I play the ukulele and was looking to see if there was any local groups and was surprised to find there wasn’t.

“The instrument has seen a bit of a revival in recent years with more and more people playing it.

“It’s a simple instrument to start playing – you only need to know a couple of chords and you can perform songs. Buying a ukulele can be cheap too.

“Lots of people have ukuleles but aren’t using them, or maybe they want to start but don’t know how.

“If you’ve got a ukulele in the loft pull it out; if you haven’t got a ukulele we can help you find these very affordable instruments and join in the fun with others each week.

“That’s why I want to get the Daventry Ukulele Group going.”
