Uke beauty!

The U3A Uke Muster in full swing.

The sweet sounds of ukuleles descended on Emerald for this year’s Hills Ukulele Festival.

The event ran at Emerald Primary School on Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 May and featured a diverse range of world-class ukulele performers, ukulele groups and workshops.

Festival organiser and the school’s music teacher, Dan MacEoin, said all Saturday workshop participants were welcomed to the main stage during the gala concert on Sunday.

“How many music festivals have that level of inclusivity?” he said.

Photographer Greg Carrick was on-hand to capture some of the fun for the Mail.
