The Plumber's Coffin

A fantastic night at the Idler Academy's ukulele graduation party, where my class of fellow ukes and I got our Idler Academy diploma in beginners ukulele, and played a couple of songs (Bob Dylan's "Wallflower" and "Tonight You Belong To Me").

 

Our headmaster and compere for the night, Tom Hodgkinson, presented a great history of the ukulele (and a sterling rendition of "Ukulele Lady") before conducting our passing out ceremony and presentation of certificates.

 

Some fantastic music followed from our able instructor Danny Wooton and The Sometimes and Forever Band, then a finale where Circulus's Michael Tyack and Jenny playing some "cheeky Elizabethan ballads", bringing the night to a great end!
