4 Strings & the Truth (DVD)

London, 2006. Ukulele sales are rocketing, the UK's first specialist uke store has just opened, new uke bands rehearse in kitchens and pioneering uke open mike nights are jam-packed. 

4 Strings & The Truth was the first documentary to record the origins of the current global ukulele boom, and features the legendary cult band that did most to inspire the humble instrument's revival, and the musical maverick at its heart.  

George Hinchliffe explains why he started the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain in 1985, and this film shows the rest of the world finally starting to catch up. A portal into the parallel universe of London’s ukulele microculture with George as our guide.  

4 Strings & The Truth blows away the notion of the ukulele as a novelty instrument – in George’s hands it beomces a witty, subversive, powerful and oddly charming interpreter of the language of music.  Rather like George himself.
