The Brisbane BUMS

25 06 2012

A nice short piece about folks enjoying music in a participatory manner in Australia (h/t to Alex Ruthmann, who sent this in forever ago). Great to see people enjoying the uke around the globe:

Suggestions for songs are sent in by members of B.U.M.S., and then each song is led by a couple of competent musicians up on stage, who sing, coach, and project the chords and notes for the songs on a screen. Those joining in range from experienced musicians to raw beginners, and from the grey-haired to the very young. I also saw a rogue double-bass that had turned up and was allowed to join in, no questions asked.
