WAN McLennan has plenty to say – and he’s say­ing it all against a back­drop of ex­quis­ite acous­tic mu­sic at Uxbridge Folk Club.

One of Scot­land’s finest ex­ports to the world of folk, this ex­pert bal­ladeer is keep­ing tra­di­tion and the his­tory of sto­ry­telling alive. For just £8 you can ex­pe­ri­ence this ves­sel of sub­lime tal­ent for your­self.

Ewan will be at the club, at 388A Long Lane, Uxbridge, Mid­dle­sex UB10 9PG, this Thurs­day, May 28, at 8pm.

Sup­port­ing him is Kelly Oliver, whose res­o­nant clear voice will lift your spir­its and recharge your soul.

Top marks to An­drew King and his soul­ful rock out­fit Band of King for win­ning the Battle of the Bands at the Crown and Treaty in Ox­ford Road, Uxbridge over the Bank Hol­i­day.

I be­lieve the judges reached a stale­mate for a while af­ter a heated de­bate over whether Band of King or the rock­ers De­vience should be the vic­tors. I’m glad I wasn’t a judge but I ad­vise ev­ery­one to check them both out on­line and see what YOU think.

More live and orig­i­nal mu­sic at the Crown and Treaty this Fri­day May 29 as it’s Yuck Indie’s third birth­day.

The now fully ac­claimed and fa­mous, indie gi­ants known as Dex­ters will be head­lin­ing and hop­ing to blow you away with a

Hayes and Har­ling­ton Com­mu­nity Cen­tre, Al­bert Road, Hayes

The Gen­eral Eliott, St Johns Road, Uxbridge

The Brook House, King­shill Av­enue, Hayes tight and tune­ful tirade of three minute up­beat and dancey songs to help you bounce your­self into the mosh pit.

It’s just £5 to get in af­ter 10pm but be­fore that it’s com­pletely FREE!

Also on the bill are De­coy Jet who pos­sess an ar­ray of sleazy Indie blues tunes that’ll make Jake Bugg blush. Hilling­don’s home grown tal­ent The Har­lings will be play­ing their hearts out too as will Ju­das who are also in the ranks of sup­port. The bands start at around 10.30pm. So how’s that for a fiver? DJ’s take you into the morn­ing.
