Tyrone and Lesley
Tyrone and Lesley create songs on the ukulele, double bass and U-bass, all instruments that must be played close to the heart. First meeting in 2000 in the showUkulele Mekulele they’ve made music ever since, having released four albums: Ukulele Heart (2012) , Bear with Me (2013), the soundtrack to the hit show of the same name, Gentlemen Songsters (2014) and Baubles: A Ukulele Christmas (2015). With one foot on the music stage, and the other on the theatrical stage, they’ve performed to many audiences of the large and little kind.
