THE SUSSEX UKULELE CLUB
We don’t only farm here, we love music too. Aside from Pete and Claire running the odd music event, Claire Nicolson, partner of Peter Bourner, also teaches adults the ukulele. Claire helps run the farm and river camp is also a very talented singer/songwriter and great all round musician. Having been singing and playing all over the world for the last 20 years she likes to keep it all a bit more local these days and enjoys playing gigs in Hastings Old Town and the odd full band show and has found that she “ain’t too bad at teaching”. Sam Brown, who Claire used to sing backing vocals for all sorts of well known bands and runs The Fabulous Ukulele Club thought Claire would be good at teaching the uke too. Claire’s mother was a music teacher and sure enough it turns out that she’s great at it.
She runs beginners / intermediate and advanced courses, here on the farm in our Hot House and in Hastings upstairs at The Jenny Lind.
See full details below.
The idea is to learn 1 or 2 songs a week, and then we give a small performance for our family and friends on, or shortly after, the last session. You will also have access to an online dropbox folder where you will find all the the music we’re learning and recordings from the class to practice.
