The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain - Live in Austria 2009

This the The Ukulele Orchestra Of Great Britain in concert at the Glatt & Verkehrt Festival, Winzer Krems, Krems, Austria on the 26th July 2009.

 The superb musicianship along with thier unique take on so many famous songs across different genres along with the humour, make this a definate must have for all fans, and a great reminder for anyone who has seen them at festivals or on tour. If The UOOGB are new to you then in my opinion this is one download worth the time checking out.

In 1938, a group of winegrowers founded the Winzer Krems, Austria’s biggest producer of high-quality wines, situated in Krems. The location offers a gorgeous view over the whole town, the river Danube up to the Göttweig monastery and the Lower Austrian wine growing area at the border to the Wachau. This is the setting for this concert and festival.

The orchestra has had varying line-ups over the past two decades, but is currently performing as an octet, with seven ukulele players and one bassist. The members wear traditional orchestra dress for performances, with the men in black tie and the women in smart evening wear.

Brings to mind the old quote; "Some people march to the beat of a different drummer. Others polka"

Great stuff. My old music teacher would've shit bricks if he'd heard this!
