Ron Trueman-Border has been a musician in various guises since a very early age. He had his roots in rhythm and blues and has collaborated with various bands.

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.

His work has been covered by many performers including John Scott Cree, Paul Sirman, George Wilson, Pete Fyfe, Les Elvin and Geoff Higginbottam and the list is growing.

As well as solo performances such as tonight's, Ron has his own band Perfect Strangers, who released the CD 'Chase Me Girls I'm Chocolate' in Oct. 2003.
