Once again the Ukes of Hafod find themselves at the Play Stage but this time at the wonderful Secret Garden Party.
A make-shift music stand made from a sack trolley adds to the comedy ambiance.
Probably their finest performance to date, to end a great festival summer for the boys from Powys.
Nice to see the Ukes of Hafod play the excellent and Über-environmental Workhouse Festival in July 2008. Not that far from Machynlleth so a strong throng of fans and friends in the audience are entertained in the cabaret tent.
Imagine all the brightest and nicest big top tents from Glastonbury all in one place with no 'white sheds' in sight and that's what you get.
This festival takes place in Llanfyllin, Powys, in July, and is certainly one to watch out for in the summer ....

Ah yes ... the Ukes of Hafod hit the new 'Shangri-la' fields of Glastonbury 2008.
The band produce their longest set to a packed crowd at the Play Stage which includes the first public airing of their classic Welsh Patagonian homage "It's only £1 a Kilo" ... leaving the audience screaming for more - and screaming in laughter pains.
Next gig will be The Workhouse Festival, followed by The Secret Garden Party.
Bring it on lads ....

At this point the infamous uke band was playing under the fuller title of The Ukulele Orchestra of Machynlleth. However, rather flatteringly they were introduced at this 'Potting Shed Cabaret' gig in Liverpool as The Ukulele Orchestra of Wales (to be kind to the MC I suspect it was much easier to pronounce for outsiders).
