The Ukulele Society of Great Britain (USGB) was founded in 1970 with the aim of 'promoting and establishing an interest in the playing of the ukulele and ukulele banjo in their various styles and methods of presentation'. The following year Billy 'Uke' Scott was made President and in his acceptance letter he stated that "he was pleased to learn that the aims of the Society were dedicated to promotion of the instrument".
Between meetings, we have a magazine, 'The Syncopator' which keeps members informed and involved and those who share a passion for the Ukulele and the Ukulele Banjo continue to meet in April and October where they catch up with friends, play the ukulele and share their knowledge and talent with others - but above all ... have fun!
The USGB produces 'The Syncopator International'; an aptly named bi-annual magazine for members which includes articles, features, readers letters, reviews, ukulele arrangements and techniques, articles about players, meeting details, reports, media snippets, adverts and cartoons. This unique publication is compiled by our editor Clarice Ramsden, known to many ukulele enthusiasts in the UK as the 'Ukulele Pirate Queen'
