“an oversized dose of unexpected happiness” - The New York Times
The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain has stumbled upon international and critical acclaim as the most entertaining pluckers. Dancing somewhere between sincerity and insanity; punk rock sensibilities and restrained British humor; the not-too-silly and the not too-serious. A 37-year-long career has taken them to Carnegie Hall, Glastonbury Festival, the North Pole, and from China to Estonia via Japan, Australia and The Isle of Man, garnering hordes of fans and imitators along the way. Born of a rejection of convention and a penchant for reinterpretation, their catalogue is a menagerie of rock, pop, jazz, blues and classical music, performed with humor and a ﬂair for toe-tapping, roof-raising, and often twisted renditions of best-loved tunes.
