Award-winning uke and double bass duo Tyrone and Lesley play the tunes that got away on a night just for you: rarities, requests, song dedications and a rewarding chance to bring your uke and Strumalong. On purchase you’ll gain access to a free ukulele lesson to learn the simplest song there is. Bring your uke along to the show and we’ll play it together. If you like your music rich and weird and rather rare, come celebrate the release of their ‘rarities’ collection The Unheard Of Tyrone and Lesley (Volume 1) at Ashgrove’s unique Junk Bar on May 20.

The skill needed to pull our emotions from amused jubilation to sombre beauty is a rare one but these guys have it in abundance UkePlanet (UK)
charming avant-garde entertainment: these gentlemen songsters may appear as if they are from a different era, but their messaging is very aptly of the now. Bluecurtains
Tyrone and Lesley are a songwriting and performance duo who write light music for dark times. Having one foot on the theatre stage and the other on the music stage is a striking stance which has headlined for audiences little and large all the way from the Sydney Opera House to the United Kingdom.
This is our twenty-third year together as a duo. We’ve played the Sydney Opera House, headlined in the UK, New Zealand, and at ukulele festivals all over Australia. We’ve released six albums and one EP. Optimism (2017) and Have No Words (2021) were dubbed Ukulele Recording of the year. 2023 sees us releasing a compilation ‘B-sides’ the Unheard Of Tyrone & Lesley (Vol. 1) This project will be our 8th full length album.
Winners of the Australian Guild of Screen Compsers Johnny Dennis Music Award and finalists in the Queensland Music Awards for their songwriting, they’ve played the Sydney Opera House, Queensland Performing Arts Centre, Melbourne Recital Centre, The Adelaide Festival Centre and many events including the New Zealand International Ukulele Festival, Melbourne Ukulele Festival, Cairns Ukulele Festival, Spruke, Newkulele, Blue Mountains Ukulele Festival, the Brisbane Festival, Perth’s Awesome Festival, the UK’s Grand Northern Ukulele Festival and many others.
