Dr Samantha Muir – Concert & Workshop

Dr Samantha Muir is the first person in the world to complete a PhD (University of Surrey) on the ukulele. Building on her classical guitar background (ARCM) her arrangements and compositions define the ukulele as a contemporary classical instrument. Dr Muir also specialises in performing the unique 19th century repertoire of the machete de Braga – one of the forerunners on the ukulele from the Portuguese island of Madeira.


In this concert Dr Muir will play pieces from the Renaissance to modern day on the ukulele, the machete de Braga, the classical guitar and the 4-course guitar. She will also provide insights into the instruments and repertoire.

“Samantha Muir spearheads a growing movement to expand the classical ukulele repertoire.”
Blair Jackson, Ukulele Magazine, Spring 2021

Tab Improver Workshop: playing simple tunes & arpeggios on your ukulele

This workshop is ideal for anyone with a basic knowledge of how to read tablature. The focus will be on fingerstyle techniques and participants will learn a selection of melodies including Skye Boat Song, Scarborough Fair and Morning Has Broken. They will then explore how to create arpeggio accompaniments to these songs in order to play them as simple duets.  The material is designed for re-entrant tuning (gCEA) but low G tuning (GCEA) is also suitable.
