“Cleverly arranged and played with humor, energy and virtuosity.” – New York Times
Not even a global pandemic can keep them away! Canceled only a few days prior to taking place in March 2020 when the world closed down, we’re chuffed to finally bring you Britain’s greatest living ukulele band at last.
Playing popular hits and classical favorites, the “Ukes” honor the spirit of the songs we love while adding textures and sounds that can only be created with four simple strings. The eight virtuosos—playing ukuleles of various sizes and registers and singing along to the great delight of all (usually!)—have toured the globe since 1985 with a trunk full of tunes, a uniquely British sense of humor, and a toe-tapping performance that no one can ever resist. Don’t even try!
