About the Strathroy Jam Sessions on Tuesdays
The CRackerS ukulele group started back in October 2015 and is still growing. The SOUP Steering Committee does not run or operate this group, although we do share our Songbook and some of our SOUP members and instructors. SOUP and CRackerS support one another in the joy and appreciation for both the ukulele and jam nights. We've even given them their own section on our website.
Origin of the Name
SOUP appreciates the play on words, (SOUP has a new 'side': CRackerS!) and how the team of ladies (Mary-Lou and Kathy) who run the Tuesday night jam came up with their own unique, complementary name.
CRackerS = Caradoc Region SOUP
CRackerS Jam Nights

We use the SOUP songbook and from time to time allow our members to bring a song they would like us to try. This is a beginner group and so we try to keep it simple. All are welcome.
