The sixties was filled with flower power, experimental music, legends, liberation, hippies and one endless summer of love... or so they say. In short, a place that only some of us have lived and others can only dream of. The quirky and sprightly peeps of Ukelily are trying their utmost to live this vivid dream!
Ukelily is a British band based in Brittany (France), the land of myth and magic... as well as some very excellent cider! Created by the fly-away ukelele wielding Lily, she and her fellow troubadours have performed on either side of the channel. Draped in Paisley, beads and a lot of hair, this friendly bunch are happy performing here-there-and-everywhere. Existing as a full five piece band since 2011, Ukelily happily adapts to each gig individually, performing at times as a trio or duo at cosier venues.
Their songs vary from upbeat vibrant tunes to get you dancing, to reflective grooves which tell tales that speak of many different aspects of life. Harmonic melodies embed their rootsy songs with subtle touches of other musical styles such as: rock, pop and reggae! What more could you expect when their influences range from: Paolo Nutini, Marina & the Diamonds, Blondie, the Levellers and Cocoon to name but a few!
So if you want to take a peek into a place of flowers, of song and dance, then welcome into the petal scented universe of Ukelily – the folk band with a twist!
