The Utterly Butterly Ukulele Project (TUBUP)
Music and junk instrument making workshops for corporate businesses
The Utterly Butterly Ukulele Project (TUBUP) was founded in 2009 by Steve Nutter (Nutter), Nick Penny (Prof) and Simon Ferraby (Toff), as part of a family learning arts festival activity in Corby, Northamptonshire. Over a period of 3 months, 1150 people made TUB-Ukuleles. There was a massed gathering of TUB-Uke players, who performed in the town centre!
We have delivered the project in schools, at community events and for corporate businesses all over the UK, and we’ve found that the project seems to have a universal appeal to all age groups. Some of the highlights of the project include: BBC Children in need Wales – 600 TUB-Ukes in a day, Guest speakers at the Music Learning Live Education Conference (Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama) and as you can see below, even esteemed members of The Royal Family have not escaped the TUB-Uke!
We’ll come into your workplace or venue with everything you need to make your own Ukulele.
The ukuleles are made using a spread tub, a piece of wood and have fishing line strings. You’ll be amazed how well they sound and play!
Once you’ve made your TUB-Uke, we’ll show how to play.
To your amusement and amazement, you’ll find yourself playing your own TUB-Uke with the Utterly Butterly Band in a massed ukulele jam session.
Your team will be amazed and amused at how well the TUB-Uke plays after receiving some expert tuition and taking part in a grand mass performance with The Utterly Butterly Band.
Approx duration: 1.5 – 3 hours
Number of participants: up to 60 in one session
