edinburgh fringe festival residency

The Pleasance Theatre in Islington have just invited me to Edinburgh during the fringe festival for a lunchtime folk residency.

Barbara and Jane will be joining me on accordion and violin; we will be playing at 1.45pm in The Pleasance Courtyard from 22nd-25th August.

You can buy tickets from here – http://www.pleasance.co.uk/edinburgh/events/robin-grey.

Other Edinburgh evening gigs to follow… if anyone has any leads do get in touch!

save the duke of uke

I have spent some lovely hours at The Duke Of Uke and sent many many of my ukulele students there to buy their first ukes.

Ironically the area around the shop has become more and more trendy, probably down to the shop as much as anything and now they are being evicted.

Which means that now is an even better time than usual to support them. Buy a T-Shirt, a uke or send them a donation here. Or visit them and give Matthew a hug from me.
