Description:

Gowanus Dredgers Canoe Club are thrilled to announce a return by the Ukuladies from Regina, Canada at the Creekers Jamboree,

 
Saturday June 26th at 5 p.m.
Creekers Jamboree is a music series that celebrates Roots and Americana music on the banks of the Gowanus Canal. The boathouse is located at:
165 2nd Street, Gowanus, Brooklyn, NY 11231

This season, the Gowanus Dredgers are reconnecting Gowanus regulars and visitors with events at our canal. We hope to offer free canoe voyages on Saturdays before shows, south of the active EPA cleanup (location TBD), but stop by our boathouse for some hootin’ good times as the sun sets.

The Ukuladies are a perpetually-touring, twin-sister, aunt, and one tap-dancing-cousin act from Regina, Canada with a lust for life and its idle curiosities. Fiddles, ukuleles of all shapes and sizes, flute, musical saw, toy piano, glockenspiel, kazoos, tap dancing, and party favors are all part of the glory that is a Ukuladies show! Fraternal twins Genevieve and Jimmy Lu, with Aunt Mary Louise, and Cousin Bunnie  grew up together in a close and large family…that was big.

 
The ladies played music together under the tutelage of various uncles and an occasional grandmother who nurtured the girls’ love of small instruments that make plinky sounds. Seeing and more importantly hearing their talents, a relative at a family picnic said “hey….you gals oughta get outa here and play somewhere else!!”  So, they took that advice and headed for bigger prospects….in Winnipeg!

From there on, they became the infamous Ukuladies who are proud to have hit nearly every Holiday Inn on the Eastern seaboard. Come and join the “ladies” as they share cowboy love songs, Ruth Wallis medleys, faves from the 30s and 40s, and a host of original hits!
