    Can't help you about Carlisle United - but I really like The UofGB.

    The Ukulele Orchestra Of Great Britain has 8 top class players and 5 very good reserves, which is more than can be said about Carlisle United.

    When This Lousy War is Over

    This October and November we will be touring the specially commissioned show ‘When This Lousy War is Over’. This is your last chance to see the concert that commemorates the centenary of the Great War through popular music of the time.

    The inspirational show that includes stomping marches, early jazz, poignant ballads and catchy instrumentals, reflects the range of attitudes from the time; patriotic, pacifist and feminist, drawing on gypsy music, music hall, soldier's songs and even the avante garde Cabaret Voltaire in neutral Switzerland.

    The selection of songs are presented with the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain’s trademark humour, originality and passion. The musical pieces will be framed by a narrative, with stories taken from the original war diaries and memoirs written by relatives of the orchestra.

    Catch us at the following UK dates:

    Wed 24 Oct - Wiltshire Music Centre, Bradford on Avon

    Fri 26 Oct - The King’s Hall, Ilkley

    Sat 27 Oct - Cast, Doncaster

    Sun 28 Oct - Gala Theatre, Durham

    I saw them in Traverse City, MI a few years back. They were awesome. Do they still allow the audience to play along with one song?
    It was fun to do, if they still do it.
