Since the early 70s, Bob Fox has lovingly developed his skills in the performance of folk song in all its various forms. He has toured extensively throughout the UK, Europe, USA, Australia and New Zealand, has collaborated with many top musicians and is the recipient of numerous accolades and awards. His work includes The Pitmen Poets and the BBC Radio Ballads as well as many acclaimed solo recordings.

Bob has been nominated many times at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards as Folk Singer of the Year and his interpretation of the song My Love Is in America gained its writer, Chris Leslie of Fairport Convention, a nomination for Best Original Song.


“One of the truly great voices from the North east with musicianship second to none.”Vin Garbutt

“Fox always was one of the scene’s superior singers and his voice is as confident and ebullient as it ever was.”Colin Irwin, Folk Roots Magazine

“Bob, in my view, is a greatly under-rated singer and musician, if he were pushier he’d be up there with the Carthys and Gaughans and he could certainly teach the upcoming generation a thing or three!”Raymon Greenoaken, Stirrings Magazine

“Bob Fox’s supreme voice is full of life and clarity.”New Zealand Folk Newsletter

“The most complete male folk artist on the British folk scene, his voice and singing style is envied by many of his contemporaries.”Colin Randall, The Daily Telegraph

Concert hosted by Pete Rimmer.
