One of the original members of The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain, Richie Williams began his career early (He started playing the guitar aged 6.) He was a roadie for Frank Zappa and Status Quo and has worked with Mary Wells, Martha Reeves, Edwin Starr, Ben E King, Snake Davis and the Alligator Shoes.
Richie plays a Lichty custom Myrtlewood steel string baritone ukulele. Read more of the story …
“My uke is playing wonderfully well, and our last gig in Liverpool was particularly good. My home town did not let me down and everyone who watched the whole show said it was outstanding. All I know is that it sounded good, and my new uke made a major contribution to that great sound!” – Richie Williams
