Ukulele Videos + An Outfit

I think I mentioned the other day, when I posted the last ukulele video, that Kate and I would be performing the following week. Well, that all happened on Thursday and I'm happy to say that I have the videos for you to see (well, hear more than see as it was rather dark and there's not a lot to actually see in them):


Unfortunately we didn't have any scantily clad hula girls like were in this video from a Laurel and Hardy film (I don't know which one...)


We also performed Dolly Parton's Jolene (eep!). By this point my mouth was completely dry from nerves and I found it a little difficult to sing...


The performances were for the Isle of Swing Sesh Grad Dance (I made the fliers, which you should be able to see here) - The Swing Sesh runs six week Lindy blocks and has a different themed grad dance at the end of each block. Oh, by the way, Kate and I perform under the name They Call Us Tallulah (at least, now we've had one performance we can say that we do, anyway).

As the videos were so dark here's a very silly photo I took of my 'costume':

Wearing my Heyday trousers, again, and a striped t-shirt I found at a Salvos.

I do hope you enjoyed the videos! Playing ukulele is probably my favourite thing to do, after buying pretty dresses.

Love,

  15. I love playing the ukulele aswell, but I don't even have the guts to perform infront of my family a lot of the time as my singing isn't up to scratch. I've just come across your blog btw and what I've read so far I've enjoyed :)
