“I was lucky enough to see The League of Ukulele Gentlemen perform a fantastic concert at St George’s Church, Cullercoats. Highly recommended for an evening of stunning music and great entertainment! I am so pleased to be able to get them back in the North East again so soon!” 

Liz Panton

The League of Ukulele Gentlemen invade Cullercoats!


You usually have to travel to Cumbria to see these guys – or even further afield when they are on tour with such twinkling stars of the ukulele firmament as Mike Hind, Dead Man’s Uke and Zoë Bestel – so this is a rare treat!

If you have come across “Feckless and Fuddle” before (aka Andy Webster and Matt Warnes) then you will have a fair idea of what to expect – lots of fun, laughs and superb ukulele playing!

James Hill and Anne Janelle – Cumbria Tour November 2016 | @HighlightsEvent | #ruraltouring

Yes, it’s true! James Hill and Anne Jannelle are all over Cumbria like a rash!!!

There are definitely tickets left for Haltwhistle at the time of writing – see this Highlights North Rural Touring Scheme page for all  James Hill and Anne Janelle Cumbrian tour dates and tickets


“Four strings and a favourite chocolate bar: that’s all James Hill – “possibly the best ukulele player in the world” (Waikato Times) – and Anne Janelle – “a cellist of true beauty” (Ottawa Citizen) – had in common when they first met. It was more than enough.

It’s true: opposites attract. James grew up playing folk, jazz and blues on his ukulele while Anne was exclusively a classical cellist. But the pair’s differences quickly became their biggest asset. The uke is high, the cello is low; the uke plays short notes, the cello long bow strokes; the uke is all about strumming while the cello radiates melody. Like shadows and light in an old photograph, these contrasts are complementary. “We’re like a pair of dancers who can’t step on each other’s feet,” jokes James.”

“Bosko & Honey are a non-professional ukulele duo and married couple based in Kuranda, Queensland, Australia.

They like to travel the world on “Ukulele Safari”, using internet video to share their musical experiences with others.”

Found them on Twitter @UkuleleSafari – they have some lovely, inspiring videos on YouTube as well as on their website.
