Ron Trueman-Border @ Orpington Folk Club, The Change of Horses 2009
RTB has gained a reputation as one of the acoustic scene’s most renowned singer / songwriters (as well as being one of the most travelled!).  A man of few words on stage – he saves his efforts for his songs.  These are getting better known and are becoming popular with other performers too.

Normally a four piece, tonight this will probably be Simon (vocals, guitar, dulcimer), Leigh Trowbridge electric guitar, vocals and Andee Price (electric bass, stand-up bass, mandolin, bouzouki, guitar and vocals). 

Simon is a singer/songwriter of some individuality and has produced several CDs.  "His subject is life; love and loss".

Leigh provides harmonies and ‘thoughtful guitar playing’, while Andee is "the multi-instrumentalist jewel in the band's crown".
