  • And Another Plucking Thing...

    Start your year on the right foot and get your toes tapping with our brand-new album!

    It is not “too” unsettling but just “a little bit different”, featuring twisted interpretations of classic songs, rarities, obscurities and all-time favourites, compiled from recordings made over the last few years, live and “as live” in the studio.

    It features eleven vocalists and soloists from the UOGB’s pre and post-lockdown team and includes songs such as Love Machine, Children of the Revolution and Gimme all your Lovin’ (this version was admired by yer actual ZZ Top).

    Only available from the UOGB, containing a lot of beats, and a lot of singing, but mainly a lot of plucking - from folk to funk to rock to 1920s jazz, here’s another plucking CD.

  • Never Mind the Reindeer Songbook

    A Christmas gift to you.

    Please enjoy this re-release of our songbook featuring Carols, Songs and Music for Winter, Christmas and New Year. Learn to play some all time classics for your friends and family, or of course just for yourself to hone those ukulele skills.

    The music includes transcriptions of all the tracks on “Never Mind The Reindeer”, the Christmas album released by The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain that is still available for sale in our shop if you wanted to play along with us.

    The book is an A4 PDF with 36 pieces of music and some text.
    The PDF book contains:
    * music notation of all the melodies,
    * ukulele tablature for the melodies (GCEA tuning),
    * chord names,
    * chord windows (GCEA tuning)
    * all the lyrics.

    Let us know how you get on and make sure to tag us if you post any ukulele playing videos!

    If you are solvent, well-heeled or not struggling this winter season, you could always consider making a donation to the Orchestra. That’s entirely up to you. How much is a donation? What’s a songbook with 36 pieces in it worth these days? That’s up to you.

    But don’t feel bad if you can’t because you’re skint, or in difficulties, or even if you’re just a mean old Scrooge! Have a present from us anyway. We can all make the world a better place by saying “Wotcher Mate” (What Cheer, it means).

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, to you - from us.
