Skiffle Music

Am enjoying my new hobby ukulele.  As an old timer I remember skiffle and think it would be quite easy music for the ukulele.  Can anyone recommend a site or sites that might have music with lyics and chords for any of the following groups {a blast from my distant past].  Vipers Skiffle Group, Chas. McDevitt Skiffle Grroup. Ken Colyer Skiffle Group, Alexis Korner Breakdown Group, Delta Skiffle Group, Wescott Skiffle Group, 2.19 Skiffle Group, Johnney Parker Washboard Band, Avon Cities Skiffle Group, Chris Barber Skiffle Group and Lea Valley Skiffle Group.
There may be others and obviously Lonnie Donegan.  I will keep checking various web sites but have not had much luck so far.  Might be me as am quite  new to ukulele playing and searching the web.
thanks for any help.

Re: Skiffle Music

Good question baldguitardude,I do not have a complete answer,I do remember they were very popular in england in the fifties and early sixties,and many of the major bands started as skiffle ie; beatles,stones members etc.

Country music is three chords and the truth.

Re: Skiffle Music

Jimmy Paige got his start playing in skiffle bands.  "This Might Get Loud" has some awesome video of him at 14 years old playing in his band.


Someday we'll win this thing...

Kudos for you. I will agree with dino, check out the early Beatles songs for skiffle music so that you can learn to practice using their song. You might as well start your own Skiffle group someday smile
