THE Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain is a group of all-singing, all-strumming Ukulele players and they are heading to St George’s Hall in Bradford next Saturday for a spectacular show.

Using instruments bought with loose change, they firmly believe that all genres of music are available for reinterpretation, as long as they are played on the Ukulele.

A concert by the Ukulele Orchestra is a funny, virtuosic, twanging, awesome, foot-stomping obituary of rock-n-roll and melodious light entertainment.

It sees no drums, pianos, backing tracks or banjos, pitch shifters or electronic trickery, just the rich palette of orchestration afforded by ukuleles and singing (and a bit of whistling).

Going from Tchaikovsky to Nirvana via Otis Redding and Spaghetti Western soundtracks, the Orchestra takes you on a “world tour with only hand luggage” and gives you “One Plucking Thing After Another”.
