About this event

With tiny acoustic strings and sumptuous vocal harmonies, the Thin White Ukes' fearless sojourn though the labyrinth of the David Bowie songbook has seized hearts and boggled minds from their hometown of Melbourne to the speakeasys of China.

The elegantly attired trio returns to the Garden after swooning reviews from 2018 to delve ever deeper into the endless riches of the Bowie catalogue. Put on your red shoes. They'll be floating in a most peculiar way.

"The Thin White Ukes set a new standard of what to expect from this humble instrument" Steve Kilbey.

"Bowie with a darkness and delicacy that gives you goosebumps" Angie Hart.

"The best version of 'Ashes To Ashes' you ever heard" Robert Forster.

"I was singing along like a lovesick teenager" Kate Ceberano.

Presented by:
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 Heroes, Let's Dance 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, the pubs of the Australian outback to the nightclubs of China. Put on your red shoes. They’ll be floating in a most peculiar way. "Dignity and scope for the ukulele... a new standard of what to expect from this humble instrument" Steve Kilbey. “Bowie with a darkness and delicacy that gives you goosebumps" Angie Hart.
