A celebrated musical juggernaut for four decades, thrilling audiences from Tasmania in the South Pacific to Svalbard in the Artic Circle, Windsor Castle to Carnegie Hall, the all-singing, all-plucking Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain continues to break the mould with a programme of new tunes as well as old classics.

A concert by the Ukulele Orchestra is an unforgettable experience. A witty, quirky, irreverent, joyful, foot-stomping obituary of rock & roll and melodious light entertainment, all played on the ‘bonsai guitar’. Add to this a menagerie of voices, eccentric humour and a fusion of post-punk energy and a wonderful evening of entertainment is guaranteed.

There are no drums, pianos, backing tracks or banjos, no pitch shifters or electronic trickery. Only an astonishing revelation of the rich palette of orchestration afforded by ukuleles and singing (and a bit of whistling) This is an exciting shopping-trolley dash through different musical genres, from ABBA to ZZ top, Tchaikovsky to Nirvana, via Lady Gaga and maybe a spaghetti Western. So in demand, they find themselves perpetually on a “world tour with hand luggage only”

The Ukulele Orchestra are coming to Dumfries – Catch them whilst you can.
