Becky Mills and Ruth Angell are two hugely talented young singers and instrumentalists from the Midlands. They aren't well known in London (yet) but both of them perform in other bands and you may have seen them performing with Ashley Hutchins or as a duo in their very successful local concert last year. Brilliant musicianship and two beautiful clear voices in harmony. “Your violin playing is beautiful!” - Rufus Wainwright on Ruth accompanying him at the 2016 Radio 2 Folk Awards "I played this lady's CD twice tonight on a long drive home. I don't remember when I was so amazed at a singer / songwriter's work. No whining platitudes, strong stories and great arrangements - and she sings from the soul." - Mike Harding reviewing Becky's CD "Dandelion" Supported by Jack Cookson - a Radio 2 Young Folk Award finalist.
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!
