AFTER five years as a floor singer around the many folk clubs in the North East, Bob Fox met fellow North East musician Tom McConville and his career as a professional folk singer/musician began. That was 1975.
The duo toured the vibrant folk club scene of mid 70’s Britain playing Irish and Scottish dance music and singing mainly traditional songs primarily from their native North East.
Bob has played almost every folk club and festival in the UK including Cambridge, Cropredy, Edinburgh, Fylde, Cornwall, and were support artists on major tours for Richard and Linda Thompson and Ralph Mctell.
Over the last year Bob has won critical acclaim for his performance as ‘Songman’ in the National Theatre’s popular stage production of Michael Morpurgo’s ‘Warhorse’. Now, after over a year in the role, Bob is returning to his musical roots by touring Britain’s folk clubs with a brand new one-man show.
Twice nominated as Folk Singer of the Year at the BBC Folk Awards, Bob has long been a favourite on the live circuit. This new show will feature a selection of powerful and moving songs and music from ‘Warhorse’ as well as traditional material from Bob’s native North East and beyond.
