” tHE bUCKY-dON’TS” started life in 2010 when co-founders Sally Vaughan and Jane Mowatt decided they’d like a bit of company when playing their newly acquired ukuleles.
Named in homage to Bucky-Doo Sq in Bridport, it wasn’t long before the group had outgrown the living rooms and conservatories of West Dorset so they set off in search of a more permanent home.
The music is an eclectic mix of well known songs with a ukulele twist – rock, pop, folk, country, punk, music hall, classical … you name it, we’ll have a go at it!
The group welcome everyone, regardless of age or ability. Beginners and experts play side by side and everyone can join in the fun.
We are now one of an increasing trend of ukulele social clubs that are springing up all over the country – the ukulele is back in fashion – ‘the peoples instrument’ – affordable and surprisingly easy to play.
We are now also discovering the joys of performing and are increasingly being asked to appear at local events and for community organisations.
Come along and enjoy the noise!
