Bob Fox at Stonehaven Folk Club

A fine exponent of storytelling through song, BOB FOX is deeply influenced by the working class culture and industrial folk song prevalent in his native County Durham.  For over 40 years he has toured extensively throughout the UK, Europe, USA, New Zealand and Australia, performing mostly solo but also alongside such musical heavyweights as Ralph McTell, Richard Thompson and Fairport Convention.  Twice nominated as Best Folk Singer in the BBC Folk Awards, Bob has long been a favourite on the live circuit.

Bob played the role of SONGMAN in The National Theatre’s multi-award winning West End production of WarHorse 2011-2013 and subsequently in the highly acclaimed and record breaking UK, Ireland and South Africa touring version which ended in February 2015.  Since then Bob has returned to the concert platform with his “Evening with the War Horse Songman” show and “The Pitmen Poets” project as well as doing solo dates at folk venues and festivals throughout Britain and abroad.

Don’t miss a chance to experience his warm, rich voice, virtuoso guitar style and newly acquired melodeon playing skill as he performs material from WarHorse, newly written songs from the Radio Ballads along with old favourites from his many recordings.
