The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain is a group of all singing, all strumming ukulele players using instruments bought with loose change, which believes that all genres of music are available for reinterpretation, as long as they are played on the ukulele.
This concert is a funny, twanging and foot-stomping obituary of rock and roll and light entertainment. Using instruments small and large the orchestra uses the limitations of the instrument to create a musical freedom. There are no drums, pianos, backing tracks or banjos only an astonishing revelation of the rich palette or orchestration afforded by ukuleles and singing (and a bit of whistling). For an evening with a difference, this is well worth booking.
Prices from £26.50
