ExpiredTulip Festival 2018 Pop-up Uke Troupe

Be a part of the Canadian Tulip Festival’s ‘Pop-up Uke Troupe’, a fun, participatory, family-friendly musical event. The Pop-up Uke Troupe will gather ukulele players and singers of all ages and abilities for a musical tour, experiencing the Byward Market from a busker’s perspective.

If you register today – you’ll get a free ‘Pop-up Uke Troupe’ Tshirt thanks to the Canadian Tulip Festival and its amazing sponsors! Don’t wait to register… or the Tshirt order will already be done!

On the Saturdays and Sundays of the Tulip Festival (May 12 & 13, 19 & 20), players and singers will meet at 1pm at Major Hill Park for a short rehearsal (approx. 45 minutes), in order to learn the arrangements for the chosen songs. The Uke Troupe will then move into the market to play three performances (each at a unique location) of their freshly rehearsed set.

Register today for the date you can be part of the Pop-up Uke Troupe. You’ll receive the song arrangements in advance, up to date meeting and performance locations, reminders, and even a FREE T-SHIRT if you register today!
