The Thin White UIkes

50th anniversary of the Ziggy Stardust album, played in full!

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 Uke’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.

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
