The Men from U.K.U.L.E.L.E

FolkCast's plans to form the Vuvuzela Orchestra of Great Britain have come to nothing, but The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain is going international, with shows scheduled in the USA, Canada, New Zealand, Sweden, Luxembourg, and Germany, as well as the UK.

Writes the band orchestra: "On our return to England we are really looking forward to a special gig at Cecil Sharp House in Camden on 11 November: 'Waly Waly on the Ukulele - Ukulele settings of Cecil Sharp'. This will be an evening of UOGB arrangements of songs collected by Cecil Sharp. The concert marks the end of Sharp's 150th birthday year."
