They are named after the famous late 50’s group the City Ramblers, regulars on BBC Radio and TV’s Six Five Special, and resident band of the Skiffle Cellar, Soho.
They recorded for Tempo Records and Storyville and played at the Moscow International Youth Festival in 1957. Today, CRR are Hylda Sims (guitar/vocals), Simon Prager (guitar/vocals) and Doc Stenson (guitar/mouth harp/vocals).
Hylda Sims, a founder member of the original City Ramblers, writes songs, poetry and novels and hosts Fourth Friday, an acoustic music and poetry event at the Poetry Cafe in Covent Garden.
Simon Prager & Doc Stenson, excellent musicians and entertainers, are veterans of the acoustic blues and folk scene in the UK.
