With A Little Help From Our Friends

The London Ukulele Project's mission is to use music to bring people together to build communities, build confidence and combat loneliness. We also believe that music should be available to EVERYONE regardless of your age, race, and background and that the ukulele is the perfect instrument for this due to its accessibility and affordability. You also can’t help but smile when you play the ukulele! 

As we are unable to bring people together in our normal way we have invited a number of ukulele artists who would have been performing at festivals over the summer to record ‘With a little help from my friends’ in the style of Joe Cocker. We then invited ukulele players to join in the final chorus. We have ended up with over 100 players from up and down the UK, Ireland, Germany and USA. 

The single will be available to download on all the usual shop fronts and the video will be on YouTube. It is not over produced because we wanted it to feel real in that people were in their own homes during lockdown. No cheating………90% of it was recorded on people’s telephones!

Profits from downloads and streaming revenue will be split: 

50% NHS Charities Together 

48% Help Musicians (which help all aspects of the live music industry - lighting, sound engineers etc, 100% is going to those affected by the current pandemic)  

2% London Ukulele Project

What will the London Ukulele Project do with their split? 

We have a list of schools that have requested ukulele sets and have also been asked by Music Therapy Departments within hospitals. Not only to bring some comfort to patients but also to the nurses and doctors themselves. 

We also want to continue to do everything we can to help combat loneliness for more information visit our website 

Thank you to all the artists and ukulele players who have given their time and supported this project and to anyone who downloads our single or makes a donation we are forever grateful, thank you!
