Duke of Uke Gig, 8.11.15

We’re really excited about playing at Duke of Uke next weekend. We’re supporting the fabulous Corner Laughers, alongside Fun of the Pier and Plastic Jeezus. We don’t get to play south often enough so it’d be lovely to see some of our London friends and fam there. The event starts at 2pm and it’s free entry too! Facebook event page


The Wonky EP ~ OUT NOW!

Listen, download or buy the CD!


The Wonky EP: coming 1st June 2015!

It’s true – we finally recorded our debut EP! We did it in the stunning surroundings of St Mark’s church in Levenshulme and we were joined on drums by the amazing Phil Howley – read more about it and see the photos on our shiny new website.

It is currently being pressed and will be available to buy on CD and download from 1st June. We are doing a very limited run of the CD so if you want one, don’t hang about.

We are officially launching The Wonky EP on Saturday 6th June at the Klondyke in Levenshulme, Manchester. Phil Howley will be joining us once again on drums so it proves to be very special. Hope to see you there.

Wonky Face

Hello! Thought it was about time I posted something, so you know I’m still alive. So here is Wonky Face for your ears:

I recently did a lovely version of this song with ace harpist Katie Brett which I’m hoping you might get to hear sometime.

Lou and Llamas are still beavering away. We should have some recordings to share with you soon. We’re also excited to be performing at the launch of the first ever Levenshulme Food and Drink Frestival on Friday 21st June. Let’s hope this sunshine lasts!

Lou and the Llamas ~ Carrying A Bomb

We popped in to Wireless Manc’s Wednesday Drivetime show a few weeks ago. This is Carrying A Bomb, one of our newer songs. I wrote it a couple of years ago and then didn’t play it to a single soul. I need to stop doing that! Please forgive the frog in my throat…

We also did Messing With My Head:

You can listen to the whole thing, complete with interview.

Thanks to Wombat for filming it. He also namechecks us in his magnificent Ukulele Babes post.

Lou and the Llamas at The Young Pretender ~ Tonight!

I’m really looking forward to the Lou and the Llamas gig tonight at The Young Pretender in Congleton. We’ll be playing two sets and trying out another couple of new songs.

This will be our last gig for a little while as we’re going to concentrate on getting our debut EP recorded ready for summer. Oh and our lovely Kate is also getting married! Our next gig is Sat 13th April at the Black Lion in Salford and it’s a killer line up! We are also taking bookings from May onwards so get in touch if you’d like us to play for you.

In the meantime, you can follow our updates, including the Daily Llamagramâ„¢, on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and Soundcloud. There might even be a website soon too.
