  • Happy New Year

    Everyone at The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain would like to wish all our fans, friends and colleagues across the world a fantastic 2016!

    The Ukes of GB have had an eventful 2015. We celebrated '30 Plucking Years' of the orchestra, which was founded in 1985 by George and Kitty, by performing 191 hours of live music at 97 gigs in 10 countries across the globe!Logging up 61 flights, 87 hotels, a few workshops and too many interviews to remember.

    Thank you all for your support in 2015, it means the world to us and we look forward to seeing you in 2016.

  • BBC Radio 4 Midweek

  • Pre-order New CD

    In the 1970s Kitty, George, Dave and the other founders of The Ukulele Orchestra met in Leeds. They jammed and played, worked and drank with friends, fellow students and musicians who achieved renown as Green Gartside (Scritti Politti), Frank Tovey (Fad Gadget), Mark Almond, Dave Ball (Soft Cell), The Mekons, The Gang of Four, The Three Johns, Abrasive Wheels among others. The Orchestra grew out of this scene, perhaps as an antidote.

    In the 1990s The Ukulele Orchestra recorded these classic punk and new-wave songs from the 1970s, now re-mastered and released in 2015. These all acoustic recordings perhaps trace a line from skiffle through rock and roll, to punk and the current ukulele resurgence.
