From 20:00pm to 23:00pm
Daria first performed at the Uxbridge Folk Club as a solo artist quite a few years ago. She then joined up with our sound man at the time, Ben Honey, to form Kara, our honorary house band, going through a number of line ups over the years. Daria has now formed her own Quartet with Kate Rouse from Kara still expertly playing the hammered dulcimer. They are joined by spectacular Belarusian pianist Marina Osman, and Tristan Seume one of the UK's leading acoustic guitarists.
The music starts at 8 o’clock usually with a 45 minute set by the support act followed by the first half of the headliner’s set at about 8:45. When you first encounter the Uxbridge Royal Naval Association hut that serves as home for the Uxbridge Folk Club you could be forgiven for thinking that maybe you might not have found the right place. It is located in the middle of a car-park just a 5 minute walk from Hillingdon Station on the London Underground, and its resemblance to a World War II barracks with its anti-aircraft gun standing guard outside looks rather unpromising and a little foreboding. However, looks can be deceiving; this is a venue much beloved by performers and patrons alike. We pride ourselves on the eclectic nature of our acts and each week can be very different. We try to put on world-class headliners and encourage up-and-coming acts (such as Donovan in 1960-something!) We like to encourage floor-spots and we have had some great performances. We generally meet on the last Thursday of the month. So come along and experience a unique venue and a warm welcome from the usual crowd - including the sailor who lurks in the corner, mourning, from inside his coffin, the passing of the rum tot!
