George Hinchliffe’s Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain
Lady Gaga? Of course. Terry Riley? Sure. The Sex Pistols? Why not?! Wagner? Bring it! No repertoire is safe from the crackerjack lasses and lads of the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain. The eight-piece band of expert strummers and singers has been charming audiences the world over, from Carnegie Hall to London’s Royal Albert Hall, since its first gig in 1985. Devilishly irreverent and shockingly eclectic, the orchestra is a bona fide UK national treasure and has inspired an international love affair with its humble four-string namesake, delivering fans “an oversized dose of unexpected happiness” (The New York Times).
