Bob Fox at Edinburgh FC / EFC
For more than 40 years Bob Fox has been regarded as one of the iconic voices of British folk song. Deeply influenced by the working class culture and industrial folk song prevalent in his native County Durham he has become a first rate exponent of storytelling through song.

The vibrant folk revival of the 60s and 70s led Bob to turn professional in 1975. He teamed up with Tom McConville for a couple of years (when EFC first encountered Bob and Tom). When that duo split Bob began working with another North Easterner, Stu Luckley. Bob and Stu became a celebrated act regularly touring extensively throughout the UK, Europe, USA, Australia and New Zealand and later alongside such musical heavyweights as Ralph McTell, Richard Thompson, Jethro Tull and Fairport Convention.

In 1978 the Bob Fox & Stu Luckley debut LP record - Nowt So Good'll Pass - was Melody Maker 'Folk Album of the Year' and in 2000 Bob's solo CD Dreams Never Leave You was voted The Daily Telegraph's 'Album of the Year'.

Bob's masterful interpretation of traditional and contemporary song combined with an outstanding guitar technique has also earned him countless nominations in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards over the years. He has long been a favourite on the live circuit both as a solo artist and in his many highly successful collaborations, which include a duo with Billy Mitchell (Lindisfarne), the BBC New Radio Ballads series, The Pitmen Poets (with Jez Lowe, Billy Mitchell and Benny Graham).

Bob was enjoying great popularity as a solo artist and having much fun touring as a duo with Billy and the new "Pitmen Poets" were all set to take the scene by storm  when a meeting with John Tams changed his life completely! Bob was doing a solo gig on July 1 2011 and Tams arrived at the gig late. They chatted on long after the gig was over and John suggested that Bob would be an ideal "Songman" in the English National Theatre's production of WarHorse in London's West End.

Three months later Bob was rehearsing in London with WarHorse's new cast and travelling up and down to the North to fulfill Pitmen Poets gigs.  He opened in the New London Theatre as "Songman" in October 2011!! WarHorse ran in the West End from 2011 to 2013, and subsequently in the highly acclaimed and record breaking UK, Ireland and South Africa touring version 2013-2015 and the 10th Anniversary UK tour 2017-2019.

Don't miss a chance to experience Bob's warm, rich voice, virtuoso guitar style and newly acquired melodeon playing skill. Expect to hear songs of love, joy, work and humour as he performs material from WarHorse, newly written songs from the New Radio Ballad series and old favourites from his many recordings.
