The venue was superb and you are certainly blessed with some magnificent scenery. The room was comfortable... and the vegetarian food was excellent.
The workshops were some of the best I have attended both on the 'making' side and on the musical side. I particularly enjoyed Andy Eastwood's workshop, it was very different and treated the attendees as 'grown ups' not just trying to teach a very easy tune or strum.
The open Mike was crowded but everyone was received in an appreciative way - it could almost encourage me to have a go! The concert was great and left everyone on a high.
The inaugural MUMF event was held in May 2018, housed in the same venue at Plas Tan y Bwlch, Snowdonia. The aim was to curate a different type of ukulele festival which, focussed as much on the art and craft of ukulele building as on the playing of the instrument. Add in sessions on songwriting, design, teaching and looking after your tools (among other subjects!) and you have a unique blend. Judging by the feedback we have received and the number of people who expressed an interest in a 2019 festival, it was a blend that was much appreciated!
Here are some photos, and some of the nice comments.
