In 2007 Trinity took up the ukulele, after her band stood her up, and she's never looked back. Dubbed "ukulele doyenne" by Time Out London, and crowned "Queen of the uke" by the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain's, Tricity has performed for musical royalty including Ravi Shankar and Norah Jones' sister - Anoushka - who she taught to play kazoo. Tricity formed her All Girl Swing Band in 2011 inspired by bandleader Ivy Benson, whose All Girl Swing Band became the BBC Resident Dance Band in 1943 and was the first band to play in liberated Berlin after World War Two. The All Girl Swing Band are appearing with a very special guest. Josephine Shaker is an American rhythm tap dancer or, as it's known in the vaudeville business, a hoofer!
