The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain is a group of all-singing, all-strumming ukulele players, which believes that all genres of music are available for reinterpretation, as long as they are played on the ukulele. With the orchestration afforded by the small, four-stringed instruments, plus singing (and a bit of whistling), expect to hear everything from Tchaikovsky to Nirvana via Otis Redding and Spaghetti Western soundtracks – not forgetting their perennial concert favourite, Wagner's 'Ride of the Valkyries'.
