  • 2021 North American Tour Update

    It is with regret that we have to announce the cancellation of the 2021 North American tour. The ongoing situation with the global pandemic has meant that a large number of the venues we were set to play in North America have had to take the difficult decision to cancel or postpone shows. In addition, the level of uncertainty around when the current restrictions on international travel will be lifted and when visas will once again be obtainable has made it impossible for us to tour this March and April.

    We are devastated that for the second year COVID-19 has prevented us from seeing our fans in North America. We cannot wait to be able to tour again and are already in talks with venues to try and reschedule the shows for 2022 and 2023. We will keep you all informed on new tour dates once confirmed.

    For further information about refunds of tickets please check with the individual venues. Do bear in mind that venues continue to be operating under a lot of pressure and will be doing their best to send out information and respond to queries.

    So you can get your UOGB fix while waiting for us to hit the road again we are posting new content on our youtube channel UkuleleOrchestra every Sunday, as well as releasing monthly ‘on demand’ shows via our website

  • Never Mind the Reindeer Songbook

    A lot of people are struggling at this time of year and it looks as if the normal Christmas cheer might be in short supply. And so… Here is a Christmas gift from the Orchestra to you.

    The full music scores including tabs, of our seasonal album “Never Mind the Reindeer” transcribed for ukulele by George Hinchliffe.

    Originally the scores were going to be available via our online store, so if you wish to make a contribution for the song book you can when you download.

  • Ukulele World Service Episode 1

    The Ukulele World Service is made under socially distanced conditions but consists of the musicians of the Orchestra playing and singing in the same space for the first time since February 2020. They have fun with the material, and include music never performed or recorded by the Orchestra before.

    The programme also contains some rather winningly daft interludes which might have been constructed in homage to Terry Gilliam or Oliver Postgate in the form of rather pythonesque piffle. There are amusing and entertaining ingredients in the show. In episode one George even plays a solid body electric ukulele.

    This show constitutes a new way of working for the Orchestra which is necessitated by the fact that gigs and concerts are not currently possible. This is the Orchestra you know and love, but as you’ve never seen them before, positioned cunningly in equidistant formation like a constellation of stars. Close enough for musical identification and collaboration but as safely separate from each other as multiple versions of those other stars: Caster and Pollux or the Pleiades. The space station is clearly putting us in the zone now.
