ONE of Britain’s most respected and internationally acclaimed performers, Ralph McTell said of Bob Fox:

“As soon as I heard Bob sing I realised that he must have one of the best voices in England. I have

always regarded him as an artiste of great integrity and ability".

Since the early ‘70s, Bob Fox has lovingly developed his skills in the performance of folk song in all its various forms.

In 2000, Bob celebrated 25 years of singing folk songs professionally with a number of tours both in the UK and abroad, starting with an appearance as special guest on the Fairport Convention tour and continuing with folk club tours in Britain, Holland and Canada.

In 2011, he was invited to play the role of Songman in the award-winning National Theatre production of Michael Morpurgo’s War Horse in London’s West End, where he consistently turned out superb performances.

Bob has twice been nominated as Folk Singer of the Year at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and was invited to sing and play at Celtic Connections as part of a performance of the 2006 Radio Ballads.

Bob now makes a welcome return to solo performances with a set that will include some of the songs from War Horse, some new material from the BBC Radio Ballads and favourites from his vast repertoire of Traditional and Contemporary songs.
