"Bob [Fox] is a local lad and blessed with one of the best voices you will ever hear. He is also a very talented musician playing guitar, piano and dulcimer. Add to that a full and varied repertoire of traditional and modern songs and plenty of good 'crack' and you can be sure of a good night." Terry Freeman - Davylamp Folk Club, Tyne and Wear.
Having seen Bob several times before, I can only agree with this description. The YouTube video below shows not only Bob's performance of the Whitby Tailor, but also his sense of humour. I'm certainly looking forward to the evening. He's on at the Bothy Folk Club, Park Road West, Southport, PR9 0JS this Sunday 27 February at 8-00pm. While he will be solo on this occasion, he has appeared previously in Southport in collaborations with Stu Luckley and, more recently, Billy Mitchell. It's likely to be a busy night, so get there early - or buy tickets on-line here. The venue sells real ale from Thwaites.
