The Thin White Ukes

The Thin White Ukes (Betty France, Michael Dwyer and Robert Stephens) have been performing the songs of David Bowie (and friends) with small strings and big harmonies in their hometown of Melbourne and beyond since 2014. The glamorously attired trio’s ingeniously handcrafted arrangements for tenor, soprano and baritone uke span six decades of hits from Space Oddity to Blackstar. Their lovingly handcrafted arrangements of the late great Duke’s mercurial songbook have teased the neck hairs of spellbound audiences and attracted stellar guest collaborators, including Steve Kilbey, Angie Hart and Mikelangelo. Their wham-bam-grandslam deconstruction workshops put classic ’70s riff-rock in the hands of uke players of all levels of proficiency, from beginners to shredders.
