Day 12 – Ukulele Legends

Almost everyone who talks to me after a gig asks me if I have seen or heard of The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain. My answer is yes and oh how I love them! What a talented bunch, full of humour and in fine voice. But most importantly, their uke technique is extraordinary. They really do show how much can be done with a ukulele what a wonderfully versatile and musical instrument it really is. Here is one of my favourite clips of them in action:

About tiltherewasuke

Take two music loving ladies. Brew a friendship for twelve years. Add a quirky instrument. Stir in an idea. Leave to stand for a couple of months. You should be left with a duo who call themselves 'Til There Was Uke. A Vocal/Ukulele duo featuring Lucy Broddle on Ukulele and Stacey Rae Hobday on Lead Vocals. With our blend of original arrangements, whistle solos, creatively inspired looks and attention to detail we hope to entertain our audience with a mixture of well know and long forgotten classic tunes that have been administered with the TTWUke treatment! That treatment takes many guises and ranges from an old school Greenday standard with a time signiature change twist to an Amy Winehouse number sprinkled with a latin feel.
