Church music

by Richard on December 8, 2009

Banksy Boy, inspired by this cartoon from ASBO Jesus and this video of the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain, suggests “disposing of worship groups/bands, just give everyone a Ukulele instead”.

I don’t want to say he’s wrong. I don’t want any controversy here. ;)

But it would be better if only half got ukuleles. The other half could share a selection of tin whistles and assorted percussion. Now that would be a joyful noise!

That must win some sort of prize for the speediest blog response!

I can always loan you our Brownie percussion instruments…..!

Can you lend us the Brownies to go with them? No one does percussion like Brownies!

I know this is an old post, from 2009, but I want you to know I loved it! I play tinwhistle (accordion and concertina too) in an Irish band in Ohio, USA, but I am also active in my church and play the ukulele for special music on occasion!
