  • Ukes and Moogs at Cheltenham Festival

    Expect an eclectic repertoire on Saturday 9 July at Cheltenham Music Festival when we perform a double-bill with the wonderful 'Will Gregory's Moog Ensemble'. The concert will showcase the synth-pop of Goldfrapp’s Will Gregory, who joins extracts from Wendy Carlos’ Clockwork Orange soundtrack and her ground-breaking Switched-On Bach album. Followed by the rabble-rousing, all-singing, all-plucking Ukulele Orchestra of GB performing a shopping trolley dash through all genres of music, from pompous to classical to trivial pop and vice versa.

    The show will end with a one time only collaboration between the Ukes and Moogs - so don't miss it!

  • CD release of WW1 Commemorative Show

    The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain will be releasing a CD of their show 'When This Lousy War is Over'. The CD 'Lousy War' will be available to purchase at their performance of the show at Lichfield Cathedral on Wednesday 6 July 2016 and will then be released for sale on their website, Amazon and iTunes.

    The CD 'Lousy War' Features music from the period of the First World War. The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain was commissioned in 2013 by Symphony Hall/Town Hall Birmingham to prepare a programme for the 100th anniversary of the start of World War 1. The premier took place on Remembrance Sunday 9th November 2014 at Birmingham Town Hall, with further performances at The Palace Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue, London and elsewhere. This is a CD of that Programme.

    Over twenty-seven countries were involved in World War 1. Combatants and participants came from Africa, Russia, China, Japan, America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand as well as from Europe. The album contains music from some of these countries and shows the truly global nature of the conflict.
