Founded in 1985, The Ukulele Orchestra is a group of all-singing, all-strumming ukulele players, who use instruments bought with loose change, and who believe that all genres of music are available for reinterpretation. All of their music is ukulele and vocals, without any accompaniment. There are eight performers with the orchestra: Dave Suich, Peter Brooke-Turner, Hester Goodman, George Hinchliffe, Richie Williams, Kitty Lux, Will Grove-White and Jonty Bankes. They have been on television and radio including the BBC, XFM and Radio 4 as well as performed in The United States, Canada, Germany, Belgium, Sweden, Finland, Ireland and Japan. Festival performances include Glastonbury Festival, Chicago Chamber Music Festival, The Big Chill, Cropredy and The Edinburgh Festival.
