Your back-of-the-tour-bus seat on The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain's anarchic first coast-to-coast tour of the USA. America is The Ukes' major musical inspiration, but what will Americans make of the cult heroes' British humour and ukulele musicianship? The Ukes In America features barnstorming stage performances, impromptu jams and guerrilla gigs in unlikely venues, including eight previously unrecorded songs.
From Carnegie Hall to California, from the NY subway to a San Franciso cafe, The Ukes In America is bursting with unexpected encounters, genre-bending music and self-deprecating wit. Backstage, on the road and at play, unique access reveals an intimate, fun and compelling portrait of this unique band. The Ukes In America was first broadcast on Sky Arts in the UK May 2014.
The DVD features the same 57min film broadcast on Sky Arts plus a 69min Extras disc of unbroadcast material. Click on the image above for details.
