The Thin White Ukes perform the songs of David Bowie in lovingly handcrafted arrangements for three precision ukuleles — soprano, tenor, baritone — and lush three-part vocal harmonies.
Since 2014, the elegantly attired Melbourne trio has crafted an evolving repertoire of classics spanning six decades, from Space Oddity to 'Heroes', Let's Dance to Blackstar, with intimate instrumentation and maximum heart.
Weaving pure magic with tiny strings, Betty France, Michael Dwyer and Robert Stephens have made jaws drop and crowds swoon from Melbourne Recital Centre to the Brisbane Powerhouse, Port Fairy Folk Festival to the Adelaide Fringe Spiegltent, and from the pubs of Perth to the speakeasys of China.So put on your red shoes. They’ll be floating in a most peculiar way.
