Made a great impression with the Boston audience his debut at the club in May 2006, Ron returns in 2007 with a new album 'Two Tears' featuring some of the songs he played that night.
Though a relative newcomer to folk music, Ron is rapidly gaining popularity as one of the folk scenes most prolific songwriters, with a reputation for writing finely crafted songs. At times his vocals and songs are reminscent of Springsteen's quieter work, also a bit like another talented singer songwriter, Pete Morton.
Not only is Ron a truly gifted writer he is also an extremely talented guitarist and multi-instrumentalist. Most of instrumental work on his albums is carried out by himself, although he often invites guest musicians to join him.

MON 12 NOV
Popular local duo who are making a name on the wider folk / acoustic circuit make a welcome return to the club, for a full performance this time around. Dave's Wilson's songs whilst linked by their acoustic nature to the folk, is more akin to the singer-songwriter styles, with modern rather than traditional themes and highly charged lyrics that can bring a tear to the eye of the listener. Wonderful singing harmonies from Kip Winter add an extra dimension to Dave's evocative songs.
