Ukulele Orchestra Of Great Britain

Always brilliant, and with a light hearted comedic spin, the superbly talented Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain are bringing some much needed joy into the world with their weekly Corona Virus Isolation Videos.

The video (Laura Currie) and audio (Doug Beveridge) editors deserve a special mention as well as they have done a fanastic job of producing these with the orchestra members scattered around the country/Europe.

If you think the Ukulele isn't a proper musical instrument then think again and listen to what a Ukulele can do when played with real talent. If you always wanted to learn to play an instrument then an inexpensive Ukulele and the lockdown give you the the ideal opportunity!

Make sure you listen with a good set of speakers or headphones and in full screen mode to get the full benefit of the sound.

To the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain, thank you, and keep doing what you are doing in your own unique way!

  Check out the Ukelele Orchestra of Great Britain YouTube channel for other videos - here are a couple of my personal favourites:

 

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly - With some impressive whistling from Jonty

(My absolute personal favourite, if you only watch one of their videos then make it this one!)

 

 The Devil's Gallop - The theme from Dick Barton Special Agent

(you'll need to dip your fingers in a bucket of ice at the end if you try to play along to this one!)

 

 

And how do often you get the Ride of the Valkyries and Silver Machine together?

 

And while you are here why not check out the multi-talented Laura Currie's own YouTube channel where she stars as her own one person orchestra and surely deserves far more subscribers
