The Songbirds are an eleven-piece ukulele band based in and around St Kilda. We began meeting once a month in 2014, with little or no musical background. We are all related through friendships and family which means that the Songbirds provides with an amazing support network to us all. We now meet at each other’s houses every Sunday morning and attend group singing lessons. After doing the best we could on ZOOM during the lockdowns, we are thrilled to be able get back to meeting and performing regularly. Our repertoire comprises of mainly well-known and loved songs, and we are beginning to include original numbers written by Helen and Mia. Before COVID we performed at a number of festivals and concerts around Victoria and Tasmania. We have also had guest appearances on Red Symons Breakfast show and Bath Community Radio in England.
