LIVERPOOL, NS -
The seventh International Ukulele Ceilidh kicked off at the Best Western in Liverpool Oct. 13. From 2-3:30 p.m., there were three workshops, followed by an open mic session in the Queen’s Room.
A strum and sing along started at 7 p.m. with the South Shore Ukulele Players. The group played many songs, including Black Rum and Blueberry Pie by Jim Bennet; Farmer’s Song by Murray McLauchlan; and Sonny’s Dream by Ron Hynes.
Mike Diabo also performed during the strum and sing along. He thanked the Ukulele Society for bringing him to the ceilidh year after year.
The last group to take the stage for the strum and sing along was the University of Maine at Machias Ukulele Club, directed by Gene Nichols. Nigel D’Eon, who lives in Shelburne, led the group in a Hank Snow song.
