“Blessed with one of the best voices in British Folk Music today and coupled with astonishing guitar technique, Bob Fox performs pure and unadulterated folk music at its finest.” – Australian National Folk Festival

Bob Fox is from County Durham in the North East of England and his performance is strongly influenced by the working-class culture and industrial folk song from that area. Bob first visited Australia around 1980 and has visited 3 times in recent years. Solo CDs include: "Dreams Never Leave You", "Borrowed Moments" and his most recent release, "Blast". Other recording ventures are "Box of Gold" with Stu Luckley; "Dark to the Sky" with The Hush, Benny Graham "How Are You Off For Coals?", and "5 Star B&B" with Billy Mitchell. Bob Fox is an exceptionally talented artist –memorable on CD, ebullient in live performance. Dates for Bob's Australian/New Zealand tour at his web site.

Opening act: Lyrebird

Kate Henshaw (vocals, blues harp, glockenspiel, keyboard, accordion and recorders) and Pete Doherty (guitars, blues harps and vocals). They share the singing, and their music is a mix of trad Celtic, pop and country with blues and jazz overtones. Beautiful harmonies, catchy tunes and quality lyrics accompany their songs.
