When This Lousy War is Over

This inspirational show includes stomping marches, early jazz, poignant ballads, catchy instrumental melodies and even a touch of Hawaiian music. It reveals that 'the instrument of the people', the ukulele, has a place in making this music live again as we remember both comradeship and sorrow.

The programme features 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 original war diaries and memoirs written by relatives of the Orchestra. One grandparent told an unusual first hand account of an incident that took place at the 'Christmas Truce' in No-Man’s-Land. Other songs have been passed down by family members, who had sung them at the time of the conflict. This is a personal show. Although the war took place a century ago its reverberations and consequences are still with us all.

Commissioned by Town Hall/Symphony Hall, Birmingham.
