The Thin White Ukes

The Thin White Ukes

,

The Thin White Ukes have been performing the songs of David Bowie with small strings and big harmonies in their hometown of Melbourne and beyond since 2014.
Spanning six decades from Space Oddity to Blackstar, their lovingly handcrafted arrangements of the Thin White Duke’s mercurial songbook have teased the neck hairs of spellbound audiences from the Brisbane Powerhouse to Byron Bay; the Adelaide Fringe Spiegeltent to the Port Fairy Folk Festival and the underground clubs of Hong Kong and mainland China. Their Glam Slam Ukulele workshops put classic ’70s riff-rock in the hands of uke players of all levels of proficiency, from beginners to shredders.
Put on your red shoes. They’ll be floating in a most peculiar way.
Betty France — voice, soprano ukulele; Michael Dwyer — voice, tenor ukulele; Robert Stephens — voice, baritone ukulele
