Co-presented by Irvine Barclay Theatre 

The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain is thrilled in looking forward to “fourteen-handedly” bringing its magisterially depraved view of the culture of popular music to the stage at the Irvine Barclay Theatre at 3 pm on Sunday, March 27, 2022 in the resumption of its “world tour with only hand luggage” after all the cancellations and postponements around the globe owing to the pandemic. Appearing at last in Southern California with crowd-pleasing, stomping, poignant, rocking, thought-provoking, swinging music; groovy plucking, heartfelt singing, virtuosic whistling, and an irreverent deflation of pomposity all served up in the Orchestra’s fine-tuned and integrated entertainment will surely be “a complete hoot” for performers and audiences whatever their ages or individual musical tastes. 

The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain believes that all genres of music are available for reinterpretation, as long as they are played on the ukulele! Since forming three decades ago, the orchestra has helped to build a new audience for what it calls the “bonsai guitar,” playing everything from rock to folk or classical to movie themes.

By royal request, the orchestra proudly performed at a private 90th birthday party for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle.

**Please note that tickets for this performance will be sold through the Irvine Barclay Theatre's ticketing system.

Wonderfully clever.
