Karen Henderson of Binary Music also plays double bass in the group.
“We love being able to help bring the community together in this social musical setting, and the afternoon tea break gives everyone a chance to chat and socialise,” she said.
The Binary Music Studio hosts regular ukulele lessons, ‘Dukes of Uke‘ and ‘Redland City Ukulele‘ Club meetings, ‘Musique’ a-capella choir and ‘Vocal Manoeuvres’ Junior Singers.
