Its an attempt to break the Guinness Book of records for the most ukelele players playing the same song in the same place - current record is about 4700! Its a pre Tour Down Under event, hence the song they will be playing is Daisy Bell (A Bicycle Built for Two). Registration is $2 and funds go to support Eye for Sport a charity which assists vision impaired athletes to compete in sporting events by pairing with an able athlete.
Happy Christmas everyone. Hope you get to spend it with the people you love.
Peter is off overseas for a 6 week holiday, visiting Europe and the UK. Not taking his guitar this time! Just a meeting with a publisher of children's music in London but otherwise catching up with friends and family. Peter loves to visit London - he and his family lived there in the late 70s and it was at this time that he recorded "Music Time" - an educational music program for primary school aged children - for BBC TV. In England he's meeting up again with the other Music Time presenter, Kathryn Harries. Kathryn went on to become a renowned opera singer. Also meeting up with one of his favourite songwriters, Johnny Coppin. Johnny specialises in writing music for the poems of famous Cotswold poets. Peter sang Johnny's song "A Song of Gloucestershire" with his 4 children at a recent big family reunion party
