  • 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.

  • "One Plucking Thing After Another" The New UOGB Album

    The UOGB has been performing for over 36 years, longer than the Beatles and Led Zeppelin combined. It’s had more gigs than the Rolling Stones and has covered more genres than Beyoncé and the Berlin Philharmonic. The live experience of the orchestra has been a major draw with sold-out audiences for decades. The orchestra has proven itself in bars, concert halls, opera houses, cathedrals and at major rock festivals across the globe by hitting the strings - all thirty-two of them - and singing. Except in "The Old Home Place" where the applause is also in response to Ewan’s Appalachian clog dancing expertise.
    Also on this CD is music from the Pink Panther, a Chinese heavy-metal song by Black Panther, and ballet music by Prokofiev. The medley “Woo Woo/Yeah Yeah/Rockin’ Goose” combines in one track three catchy vintage hits, in a journey from Tokyo to Toledo via Edinburgh. The bonus track “Something’ Stupid” revisits the hit made famous by Frank Sinatra and his daughter Nancy, in this case with George and Laura, the oldest and the youngest performers in the UOGB. “On the Road Again” could be the Orchestra’s theme song. Like donkey in Shrek, like Willie Nelson, the music is time honoured.
    The orchestra is a relentless machine delivering entertainment, fun and humour.
    It uses only ukuleles.
    What can you expect from the UOGB?
    The answer is simple: One Plucking Thing After Another.
