Bob Fox and Guitar

It’s a good time to tell you about Bob Fox because he is currently touring our shores and those of our little sister New Zealand. His farewell gig will be on Friday the 28th of March at the Albert Park Yacht Club. The venue is quite small and intimate – so booking early is recommended. I hope my tickets have been booked.

Now then, Bob Fox is a Geordie from the North east of England. He is a singer of traditional songs with a very fine set of singing equipment and guitar player to match. His repertoire is from the Scots and Irish and many songs from his own part of the world, including those songs celebrating the rich culture of coal mining and steelworking as well as varied clutch of contemporary material.

He worked for many years in duos first with fiddler Tom McConville and then with Stu Luckley but has since struck out on his own as a solo performer. He has played at folk festivals and clubs in Britain, continental Europe, north America, and Australia.and won audiences over with his rich voice. He also has an impressive collection of albums that he has recorded over the many years of his career.

So on to the samples – let’s just say that is a bit of a misnomer as there are almost complete songs that just end very abruptly. I really suggest that you have a listen if you are not familiar with this English singer. First I suggest you take a stroll over to Iconic Music for a listen to the beautifully picked My Love Is In America and Dance To Your Daddy, then move over to his MySpace site to pick up another three songs of which the Northumbrian A U A Hinny Burd is my choice, follow that with a video recording of Taking on Men.
