Brisbane Ukulele Musicians Society Inc (BUMS Inc) are returning to TAFE Queensland Brisbane’s South Bank campus for Brisbane’s biannual ukulele festival, SPRUKE. This exciting three-day event is to be held over the weekend from Friday 2 October. David Hethorn, Festival Director, said, “We are extremely excited to secure this venue with outstanding facilities for SPRUKE 2015.”
This year the festival theme is Uke’n Make Music. “The focus will be on giving participants many opportunities to play and sing together,” David said. “Even if you’ve just bought your first ukulele at the festival, you can learn to play and be making music by the time you go home. We’ll be offering a fun program consisting of concerts, workshops, ukulele boot camp, and open mic performances, for players at all levels. An important part of SPRUKE 2015 will include festival goers playing and singing together at jams and open mikes.”
“Our aim is to give festival participants a unique ukulele experience. Brisbane Ukulele Musicians Society Inc. (BUMS Inc.) has a membership of over 200 people, and sponsors jam sessions at venues across Brisbane attracting participants aged from 8 to 80.”
The first SPRUKE was held in September 2013, when BUMS Inc delivered a spectacular event attracting local, national and international visitors and performers who enjoyed the great facilities offered at TAFE Queensland Brisbane’s South Bank Campus, and fantastic weather.
