    Welcome to The Blue MUGs


    By Serena, 22/07/16

    The Blue Mountains Ukulele Group is a bunch of great people who meet to play ukulele together. Heard of The Blue MUGs? That's us. This is our space to share music, get organised and plan performances.

    We hold regular ukulele workshops, open mics, strums, jams and gigs in Lawson, Springwood, Blaxland, Leura, Penrith, Werrington and lots of other places too. Interested? Register here :-)
