Tribute To Ron Trueman-Border

It is with great sadness that we heard of the passing of our great friend and musician Ron Trueman- Border

   Ron was a great singer, songwriter and musician who will leave a great void in the Folk Music world. He will leave a legacy of hundreds of songs that he wrote and performed which will live on through other musicians performing his work.


 He supported Ruskin House Folk and Blues Club and our festivals and events over many years and was a true friend to us all. He often performed with his band 'The Strangers' as well as a solo performer.


Garry & Tina & the folk club family send their sincere condolences to Victoria and the Ron Trueman-Border family


Farewell Ron you have left us with great memories and your music will live on.  We hope to arrange a tribute concert once the Covid 19 situation improves

The Croydon Folk and Blues Club meets every Sunday evening from 8:00 at Ruskin House, 23 Coombe Road, Croydon, Surrey (see how to find us)Everyone is welcome - not just musicians, and those of all abilities are encouraged to "have a go" if they want to - it doesn't have to be folk OR blues either! Originals or covers are all welcome. The music starts around 8:30 with the regular sessions. An hour later there is usually a 'hotspot' which features a special guest. After the hotspot it's back to the regular session and the evening usually ends featuring club organiser Garry Davis and his harmonica with other musicians and singers. It is a very friendly, relaxed and supportive atmosphere and only costs 2, which also enters you into the fabulous end-of-evening prize draw. Real ale and a wide range of drinks are also available from the main bar till 10:45. Ruskin House also hosts Croydon Folk Song Club on Mondays.

If you would like to play at Ruskin House on a Sunday, prepare about five numbers and make yourself known to Garry when you arrive. If it's busy and you're at the end of the line, you may not get on till late. We don't generally use amplification, even for vocals, because unless you're using a keyboard or MIDI device, electric bass or guitar, we find that unplugged is plenty loud enough. This can be quite a challenge for those used to being miked up! The adjacent Cedar Room, which we use for large-scale events, has full PA facilities (and a bar). In the summer we often have a barbeque on the huge patio.
