From 20:00pm to 23:00pm
Two of our favourite performers tonight. PLUMHALL: "Smart lyric writing and wonderful harmonies set them above most of their contemporaries. Add to all that their easy stage manner and you've got yourself a great show. It is rare indeed that we get to see writers and performers of such distinction." - THE WONDER STUFF "Great stuff... a great duo" - DAVE PEGG; FAIRPORT CONVENTION "A fine duo - go and see them if you get the chance" - STEVE KNIGHTLEY; SHOW OF HANDS Plumhall will be supported by Terence Blacker: "Marriage Song #1 is a quiet masterpiece." - Sunday Times "A treat – witty, wistful, wonderful.‘" - Gyles Brandreth
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!
