Whether singing, playing guitar, ukulele or mandolin , Angela Meyer & William Cox’s relaxed banter and gift for story telling makes their music both interesting and memorable. Their much anticipated second album ‘Dance of the Copper Trail’ (2017) is being hailed as their best work yet.

Made up of Hylda Sims, Simon Prager and Doc Stenson, they play an eclectic mix of Skiffle, Blues, Folk, and original songs with an occasional excursion into Rock n Roll, Country and Music Hall, and are named after the City Ramblers, a famous late fifties group of which Hylda was a member. They were regulars on BBC Radio, TV’s 6.5 Special and residents at Soho’s Skiffle Cellar in Greek Street.
The guest act for October is Tim Jones & the Dark Lanterns. Influenced by the traditional singers and folk music of the UK, the band use this sound to help Tim Jones’ songs come to life. Whether a capella, shape-shifting fairy tales, or a boozy singalong, a sense of the stories and melodies that underpin folk music runs through all the songs.
Doors 7.30pm, music starts at 8pm.
