Uko Ono are celebrating the music of Elton John with fabulous fun-filled performances around the Coffs Coast!
Organiser and dedicated ukulele teach, Stephanie Sims said, "Our Elton John ukulele journey started back in October last year when we ran a second ukulele course at the Coffs Harbour Library - dedicated to learning an Elton John Medley in honour of Sir Elton’s visit to Coffs Harbour in February."
"Since then I have taught the Medley to more than 80 ukulele players from the Maclean down to Nambucca - aged 8 to 88 - in libraries, health centres, CWA Halls, Surf Clubs and to my kids groups. The ukulele really is the instrument of joy and is a fun way to connect, keep the brain ticking and fingers nimble."
To celebrate Seniors Week, this multi-generational ukulele group will be performing at a number events across the Coffs Coast including:
- Seniors Celebration Market Day at the Harbourside Markets - Sunday 16 February (on stage at 11am)
- Faces, Places Seniors Festival screening at the Cavanbah Hall - Wednesday 19 February (performance at 2.30pm)
- Bellingen Council’s Seniors Festival at North Beach Bowling Club - Thursday 20 February (performance at 1.40pm)
Make sure you get along to enjoy one of their performances...
