Welcome to Grafton Ukulele Musicians (GUM), a partnership between Apple Tree Arts and Grafton Public Library.  We meet the second Thursday of every month. All levels are welcome and there is no fee. GUM meets on the third floor of Apple Tree Arts, One Grafton Common.

Bring your ukulele and your singing voice to participate in this jam session lead by Miss Jan Barlow from Apple Tree Arts. Participants suggest the music and come together to play once a month. The Library provides copies of The Daily Ukulele on loan for use in the session.

Don't have a ukulele? You can borrow a ukulele, as well!

Brush up on your strumming skills or learn new chords with the Ukulele Course online at ArtistWorks, for free! A library card is required to access.

 

 

Here are some of the songs GUM worked on last month and will do again this month:
