The West Cork Ukulele Orchestra is a nine-piece juggernaut of musical excess, brought together for one purpose: to rock the planet, ukulele-style! Leapfrogging over barriers of genre, time and taste, The WCUO plunder the last 60 years of awesomeness to put on a riproaring show full of lush harmonies chucklesome humour, and death-defying ukulele-playing. They’ve performed in a cave, sang Christmas carols to marathon runners and german disco classics to the President of Ireland; they’ve made their parents very proud by appearing on The Late Late Show, and also penned the world’s first ukulele/Javanese gamelan orchestra collaboration. Armed only with their tiny ukuleles and a wall of harmonies, they perform playful versions of classic pop songs, and their arrangements are as inventive as they are irreverent.
