City Ramblers play an eclectic mix of Skiffle, Blues, Folk, and original songs, with the occasional excursion into Rock n Roll, Country and Music Hall. They are named after the City Ramblers, a famous late fifties group of which Hylda was a member. They were regulars on BBC Radio, TV’s 6.5 Special and residents at Soho’s Skiffle Cellar in Greek St.

"There’s … no line between poetry and people, poetry and politics, poetry and song, for Hylda. She makes us want to rhyme, to sing, to laugh and weep. She makes us remember ‘who we are, how we were …’ " – Mimi Khalvati

The original Ramblers 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 writes songs, poetry and novels and hosts 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.

With the Wandle Delta String Band, plus residents Dave East & Doreen Leighter
