Southampton Ukulele Jam
Documentary Screening w/Q&A plus live music performance
After years collecting thousands of pounds for charity, local musicians from Southampton Ukulele Jam have made a documentary to "share the stories behind the music".
Since forming in 2008, they have grown to be the biggest ukulele jam on the South coast, playing to thousands of people at festivals, concert halls and community events and often attract upwards of a hundred 'jammers' to their fortnightly sessions at Southampton's Talking Heads pub.
Now, a meeting with an up and coming documentary filmmaker has inspired them to document the diverse and often heart-warming tales of how they came to join the jam and why the love spending almost every weekend playing the humble ukulele to raise money for charity.
"We're really proud of what we do and love meeting so many different people when we jam and play. We're often asked how such a fantastic group of people found each other, how we have developed and how we continue to grow" said Jam lead Colin McAllister, so when Amy asked if we were interested in making a documentary to our experiences and stories, we leapt at the chance."
The jam meet every other Monday at Talking Heads in The Maple Leaf in the
Polygon. You can read more about who they are and what they do at
