UKULELE PERFORMERS

There are a TON of ukulele acts out there, and this is not a page to list them all. Just some links of performers I have either seen in the flesh or just enjoy generally. (For generally, read 'massively')


ANDYDAN - Ukulele synth sounds like you won't have heard before!

ANDY EASTWOOD - a total musical virtuoso and one of the hardest working players on the circuit. Ukulele, banjolele, violin - Andy can play just about anything!

THE ANYTHING GOES ORCHESTRA - one of the best good time ukulele bands I have seen live. Huge fun

CHEE MAISEL - The sublime pairing of man and wife duo, Craig Chee and Sarah Maisel. Marriage made in heaven, literally!

CHONKINFECKLE - The Wigan based uke masters and good friends of Got A Ukulele

DANIELLE ATE THE SANDWICH - great US singer songwriter and ukulele, what a beautiful voice

DEAD MANS UKE - offshoot of the Anything Goes Orchestra - Americana, blues played on reso uke and double bass by father and son duo, Tim and Jake Smithies

DEL REY - Resonator Ukulele and Guitar Specialist - A real players player who wowed the crowd at her recent UK performances

ELOF and WAMBERG - Danish duo with a beguiling mx of the traditional with modern. Spellbinding

FRANCESCO ALBERTAZZI - Italian ukulele player I have been lucky to see perform a couple of times now. His playing is so beautiful it has the audience emotional.

GERALD ROSS - something of a statesman amongst ukulele performers these days. Another real players player

JAKE SHIMABUKURO - Yes him - Bohemian Rhapsody guy.... More to him than just that video though, and if anyone is breaking the mould with the ukulele, it's Jake.

JAMES HILL - staggeringly good Canadian player and jolly nice chap to boot.

KATY VERNON - UK born, US based singer songwriter on both guitar and ukulele

KRABBERS - Quite simply one of the best singer songwriters I know on the circuit and one half of The Hedge Inspectors.

LIAM CAPPER-STARR - great player and songwriter, and brains behind the UkeEast festival.

MANITOBA HAL BROLUND - Wonderful wonderful blues man from Canada - can play the blues on a ukulele like the best bluesman of ANY instrument you will hear

MOTHER UKERS - Pioneers of ukular fusion!

NO DIRECTION HOT BOYS - One of the most entertaining acts I have seen on the circuit

OPERALELE - Fabulous duo of George Bartle and Mandi Harkett - unlike anything you've seen before!

PETER MOSS - fabulous uke player, particularly banjolele. PLEASE NOTE - Peter is a good friend of the uke world and NOT the chap behind the TUKUO uke orchestra hitting the press lately!

PHIL DOLEMAN - UK based, superb finger style jazz player, tutor, singer, all round good egg. Heck, Phil has talent.

PROFESSOR PETER - Originally a member of the duo 'Professor Peter and Doctor Dick', The Professor is now performing his songs from the twenties and thirties as a solo act. He's also a jolly nice chap!

THE PUKES - breaking the shackles of traditional ukulele music. Sublime punk.. on ukuleles!

UKULELE UFF and LONESOME DAVE - now performing in a ukulele and guitar trio, these Liverpool based lads just ooze swing and talent.

UKEPUNK - Great trio and writers of self penned ukulele punk tracks.

UNPLUGTHEWOOD - The home of many wondrous things including Krabbers, The Hedge Inspectors and the Unplugthewood Podcast!

ZOË BESTEL - What a voice, what a voice. Hauntingly beautiful and quite handy with a ukulele too!

    If you feel they're worthwhile would you consider adding Humble Baritonics and The Bad-Ass Baritone Ukulele to your links for bari-players?

  5. Barry -- Thank you! I appreciate it. The baritone is getting more and more popular and I think I and my small but growing team have got a lot to offer. I have been enjoying your review videos.

  6. This is just a question really and I hope that it's alright. This may seem a stupid question but does anyone know if a ukulele arrangement has been done for the song "With You I'm Born Again" by Billy Preston and Syreeta. The reason I'm asking is that this was the song my wife and myself did our first waltz at our wedding too. I would love to be able to play it for her on our anniversary in September to surprise her.

    Thanks for any input and suggestions.

    Kind regards

    Tom Stewart
