Concert For Kitty Play-Along Song Announced

Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain
A Concert for Kitty
The Barbican
Main Hall
Friday 26 January 2018

Join the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain at a special concert at the Barbican, as we celebrate the life of our dear friend and founder member Kitty Lux, who sadly passed away last year.

From its inception in 1985, Kitty was a driving force behind the orchestra and key part of its style; she helped shape the orchestra from its outsider, art school, punk-rock-meets-jazz-and-early-music roots to its current status as an international institution.

The event will be a celebratory concert featuring lively toe-tapping, stomping tunes to dark, mordant ballads, with irony, wit and good humour. A show featuring the orchestra’s greatest hits as well as songs dear to, or sung by Kitty, with special guest appearances from friends and former members of the orchestra.

As part of the concert the Ukes invite the audience to play and sing along in a musical tribute to Kitty. The chosen song is David Bowie's 'Rebel Rebel'. The chord sheet can be downloaded HEREPlease print and bring a copy with you if you wish to play along.
