Daffodil - Victoria Vox and Jack Maher live session at GNUF 2017 - YouTube

Check out our latest collection of favourite ukulele videos on the Yo! Tube

Victoria Vox

Victoria Vox is quite simply a pleasure to listen to with her infectious smile, moving lyrics and breathtaking harmonies. Victoria’s upbeat rhythms and talented song writing most definitely take the humble ukulele to another level.  Variety is just one of Victoria’s strengths, add to that her skill at playing the “mouth trumpet” and occasionally singing in French. You can see why Victoria’s music delights audiences of all ages. Our highlight of the year was catching up with her at this year’s Grand Northern Ukulele Festival where she teamed up with husband and fellow musician Jack Maher to give another stunning performance.

Play     Learn     Relax     Explore Experience Levels

To help make HUG accessible to players of all levels of experience and ability we are coding the workshops in four bands – Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced and “Available to All”. If for example, if you are a beginner you are welcome to attend intermediate and advanced classes but be prepared to perhaps take more of an observer role and use it as a chance to learn what’s available in the uke world. Similarly, if you are an intermediate or advanced player you are welcome to attend any session but perhaps think of it more as fun revision and relaxation.

Concerts

• Sam Muir in Concert – Classical ukulele playing by this virtuoso
• Cera Impala – Showcasing her unique and inspirational style of playing
HUG Festival Pass

explore the local area and to relax in between sessions –don’t exhaust yourself)
