In 2012, the first Ukulele Club Songbook was published and was immediately embraced by ukulele clubs and players around Australia. The original book owed its existence to Steve Roberts of The Blue Mountains Ukulele Club who approached Hal Leonard Australia with the concept of publishing a book especially for Ukulele Clubs, containing a vast range of popular songs that everyone knows, in Uke friendly keys.
Due to popular demand, Hal Leonard Australia have again collaborated with The Blue Mountains Ukulele Club and are thrilled to present The Ukulele Club Songbook Volume 2.
The Blue Mountains Ukulele Group, and its performing group, The Blue MUGs, have been a part of the Australian ukulele community since 2008. They aim to bring the joy of playing the ukulele to as many people as possible and promote playing community music. The group runs the world's largest ukulele festival, The Blue Mountains Ukulele Festival. The songs in this book have been suggested by members of the group and have been workshopped and performed at gigs and strums to refine them as easy to play ukulele songs.
