Hawaiian cowboy and other country songs is the theme for this month’s Sing-Along with Mele Fong series: Paniolo Songs on Thursday, February 22 from 10 a.m. – noon at Kaunoa Senior Center for adults 55 and better. This program is one of a monthly series that evokes the feeling of sing-along with Mitch Miller programs as the lyrics and ‘ukulele chords are projected on the large screen in the front of room for everyone to follow. ‘Ukulele players are invited to bring instruments to play along as I lead everyone by singing and playing my ‘ukulele while my husband accompanies us on ‘ukulele-bass. Don’t worry if you don’t know the ‘ukulele chords or the unique strumming pattern for the songs. The focus is on singing the songs, finding out the stories behind them, and enjoying the group experience. Plus, in the new “Hawaiian history moment of the month” learn about Ikua Purdy, a Native Hawaiian who won the World Roping Championship in 1908.
Why are people returning? “It’s fun!” is what I’ve heard.
Lunch is optional and recommended as a good time to meet people who enjoy learning the Ukulele Mele Way. Kaunoa Senior Center is located in Spreckelsville, Maui.
SIGN UP NOW by calling 808-270-7308.
Aloha, Mele Fong, aka Ukulele Mele
