George Hinchliffe’s UKULELE ORCHESTRA OF GREAT BRITAIN
As soon as The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain walk on stage you are in safe hands. Witty, quirky and irreverent -praised by Bowie and Eno, promoted by the BBC and raved about by the New York Times, you can expect “an evening of sheer entertainment” from this eccentric group of seasoned performers. Playful, virtuosic and wickedly amusing, both fun and actually funny, these genre-bending rebels have lasted longer than Led Zeppelin, played more gigs than the Rolling Stones and rocked harder than Dwayne Johnson.
