Pompey Pluckers - Portsmouth's very own ukulele group - 5 years old this year

5 years old


    We are a diverse group of people living in and around Portsmouth who love playing the ukulele and welcome new members of any ability. We're 5 years old this year and since we've been playing for charity we've donated over £10,000 to local charities.
    This year our chosen charity is Wessex Cancer Trust, who provide free and confidential counselling as well as  complementary therapies for cancer patients and their families.

Members News: Set List 2014

    Please take a look at the agreed Set List for 2014, the correct versions will start appearing in the Song Sheet drive on the TOP TAB of this page. Please make sure you're able to access the latest versions of songs, we're trying very hard to have consistent versions this year.
Pluckers input please: 
    Why not have a go at creating a set list?I (2 x 30-40 minute sets)
The idea is that we have a selection of Plucker supplied 'Set Lists' to encourage organisers to use more songs than relying on thier favourate, this way we get to perfrom though more songs and force us all to keep them all up to practice.
New fashion accessory 'Pompey Plucker' Kazzoo lanyards, £2, available now at practices
