Pandemic plucking


Realised that I didn’t post anything on here about what I’ve been doing during the lockdown and since. A literal sanity-saver for me has been the Pandemic Pluckers – a group of uke-players, many form the UK but also from elsewhere who meet up evenings to jam together on the now-well-known software Zoom. Of course, we can’t all actually play together – internet lag stops that, but each person can play along whilst one person is unmuted and leading (and anyone is free to lead any song). So much so, that I can scarcely remember a night when I haven’t been in the study from 8pm, and have got to know people I didn’t know before from such exotic places as Canada, USA, Australia (yes, they come in the early hours!) and Liverpool.

And we had a 24-hour marathon to raise money for Doctors without Borders.

And we’ve had great fun, and kept each others’ spirits up.

(If you want to come in, find the FB group under that name)
