Mount Bures Ukulele Group





Dick Gould from Mount Bures, for many years had a keen interest in playing the Guitar and subsequently the Ukulele.
In 2017, he decided to see if there were any parishioners who had
a similar interest, with the aim of forming a local group.

Dick subsequently placed an advertisement in the Bures St Mary Parish Magazine seeking like minded people who saw a beauty in the gentle plinky plonk of the ukulele.
To his amazement and joy, 8 other people replied, and they started to meet in the tower room of the Church in Bures.
From there it expanded with currently eleven members

Flower Festival in June 2018.

The group played a mixture of well known songs which appealed,to the assembled audience. Such notable songs as "Bring me Sunshine, Leaning on a lamp, Island in the sun and Yellow Bird, soon had the audience singing and clapping along to the music. At the end the performance, the audience gave the group a rapturous round of applause

Unfortunately the Wormingford Choir which had been due to sing at the Flower Festival Service on Sunday evening, were unable to attend.
MBUGs soon stepped in and played three songs at the service, all spirituals, which surprised and enlivened some of the congregation!
