CPLUG was the Collingwood Public Library Ukulele Group. We were sponsored by and met in the library at the corner of St. Marie and Simcoe Streets, twice a month. The group was suspended in late 2015 but might restart in 2016 is enough local interest is shown in attending regular meetings.
The library also provides several ukuleles for members to borrow. Call 705-445-1571 for more information about borrowing these instruments.
There’s something about the ukulele that just makes you smile. It makes you let your guard down. It brings out the child in all of us.
Meetings were open to everyone with a ukulele, teen to adult. All levels of player were welcome to join in, from novice to experienced. There was no charge for participating. Meeting attendance ranged from six to more than 30, depending on time of year and weather. Come prepared to play and sing along!
We met on the first and third Wednesday of every month, 7-9 p.m.
The first Wednesday meeting was generally for players who know their chords and strumming. The third Wednesday had more teaching and explanation time. However, everyone with a uke was welcome at both.
There is a songbook of material (PDF format) we have worked on in the past and will practice in future here:
You can still download and print this book. I recommend you put it in a binder or have it bound at a local office supply store (spiral is best).
You can sign up for our mailing list at any meeting and get email notices as well as new songs sent to you.
We recommend you get a chord dictionary as well. Here’s a free one you can use, but check out commercial publications on Amazon and Indigo:
