Fast emerging singe-songwrtiter from North Kent way

He's on a busy schedule this year judging by his gig list, more gigs than bob Fox for this time of year!!

He'll be in St Albans on Friday 6th Feb at the St Albans Folk-song club at the King Harry.

Singing his own compositions with a hint of Dylan/Clapton but unquestionably himself.

great guitar riffs, rhythms, rymes and contrasts.

Doors open 7.45 with full supporting acts.

Lets rock

Urban blues - Orpington style

His agent keeps ringing for a booking ... have seen Ron a couple of times ... it's not my cup of tea but very popular with many I know who've seen him. I did think the last demo I heard "Ex-tracks" was very listenable in a non-demanding way...

So, yeah, go and enjoy. The only way to find out these things is go and hear - otherwise acts never get a break unless we (the audience) are prepared to take a chance!

Maximum respect to R T-B but although he is a good performer you get an even better perspective on his songwriting when you hear the way some other artists "work" his songs. If the songs are so strong that they can assume a new and greater life when hewn by other carvers, there must be some greatness in there. In that respect he reminds me of Dylan - in that many of the best realisations of Dylan songs were by others - for example the Nice's "She belongs to me".

Both the Barden of England and the Wild Rover do some stonking versions of R T-B originals.

Breezy - if Ron brings his biggest fan, Sue Tuckey - be sure to put her on for a song spot - she has a similiar singing style to Maureen who used to go to the old Catford Club :-)

He writes some great songs, but his own performance of them is so dead-pan with no variation in delivery, that round our way he's usually referred to as Ron Truly-Boring - Yawn - wake me up when he's finished.

St Albans is live with Music

So you want an extrovert entertainer to keep you interested cos you lose concentration too easily.

Well done Hamish you were very classy

R T-B certainly NOT laid back

dynamic, jumping around all over the place, chatting to Betty, constant change of pace and tempo, mood and humour.

everyone enjoyed it, like a breath of fresh air yet with a hint of familiarity, straight ,melodic and appealing, no frills, loads of choruses that were singable and involved everyone with his grande finale.

A good evenings entertainment

Next Week Heraud and Turner in the St Stephens church Hall for the best in harmony singing. See new thread later.

Good to see the S M back with us , I'll await his comments.

NOrth Kentish Man .. glad you said not me ... :)

I've seen Ron when he's assembled a band around him and it works then ie entertaining for an audience - but for the audience I need to book artists for, I'd never consider him solo. Horses for courses ...

There are other clubs locally who think he's fab (different audiences) .. but then again, (sorry to his agent n all that) but that's another reason not to book him - there's only so much artist-saturation vs audience takeup within a limited geographic area.

Ron occupies a particular niche and that's fine! I think his determination to succeed is laudable and many musicians could learn a lot from his rigourous pursuit of work.

Hellfire, if that is laid back, I can't wait to see RTB seriously fired up!   I'd definitely have to wear my dancing boots. Thought some of his songs were spot on.

All this and Hamish too.

When you say "very classy" Breezy which particular class did you have in mind?

Ron Trueman-Border is IMHO one of the brightest and freshest singer songwriters of modern times, a real talent

Great music and excellent lyrics, sometimes thought provoking, sometimes amusing, but always entertaining.

If you've never heard his work you will be in for a treat, do go and see him if you can.

Delightful club the Sunray..well done Bob..and all the very best for it's successful continuance ..Lovely atmosphere with great acoustics and candles ( woman's perspective) I'm also slightly biased as I won a bottle of Red in the raffle. Thanks for being so very welcoming and to the floor singer performers in their own right and for coming and joining Ron on a couple of numbers at the end...and as ever to George..like the new look beard by the way ...very dashing !!
Ron's back down in Dorset tonight at The Square and Compass in Worth Matravers ...unique little music pub ..with a mini museum attached ..then back up to Lincolnshire for the Gainsborough Festival Sunday evening ...phew!!!

I've never noticed the American accent. I always thought Ron sang in the same accent as he speaks. Mind you he does a couple of Buddy Holly tributes where he may do so for effect - yhere again, you've now got me thinking, I'll have to listen closely next time.

   Maybe its cos I'm from the North..!! ;-) (I talk like a refugee from the Hovis ads as a matter of course!!) I just think the Americans do their accent so much better than anyone else, as do I mine ...!! I love it a la bluegrass etc..( can you imagine Big Mon singing in Lanky dialect??) but English is English for me..!! I have a bit of a prob with English "Dylan-ism" too..it's almost as if we're ashamed of our accent... I'm proud of mine and would feel totally stupid trying to sing in anything else!! I did actually come away from a four -piece band cos I felt that's where we were heading!! Please note this is only my opinion - I have no wish to set any cats among any pigeons or seriously criticise any performers...   Right - pass the Tobermory!! ;-)
