Several years ago myself and a few other club members attended the ‘Ukulele Hooley’ in Dublin and one of the performers and workshop presenters there was James Clem from Portland, Oregon. I’d noticed that James is also a blues guitarist and so I got to play harmonica with him on a couple of occasions and we’ve kept in touch since then.
James is coming to the Cotswolds on holiday in late October and has approached me to see if he could play anywhere while he’s here. ChUG have therefore decided to feature James on the club night of 28 October – the first hour will be a normal club night, we’ll have a slightly earlier break and then James will appear at 9 o’clock, with the first 20 minutes being a brief workshop and the remaining time being a performance – as well as blues James also plays pop songs and Americana.
We have decided that James’ appearance will be to a limited audience of 40 club members, with places allocated on a first-come-first-served basis and we will be charging £3.00 for the performance.
Tickets for James are now available from myself. (For those who would like to see James but were not able to get a ticket – or would like to see him again – I will hopefully be presenting him at another venue in Cheltenham details to follow when confirmed.)
