WarHorse in Song presented by Bob Fox

Saturday, 6th May 2017 : 7.30pm


Stunning music from the multi-award winning smash hit adaptation of Michael Morpurgo's 'War Horse' by the West End show's 'songman'. A northern folk music legend and one of the finest exponents of storytelling through song, this twice nominated BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Singer Of The Year couples a magnificent voice, virtuoso guitar and lovely melodeon work to gorgeous Class A songs. Since the early seventies Bob Fox has lovingly developed his skills in the performance of folk song in all its various forms. Hailing from County Durham, his music is deeply influenced by the working class culture and industrial folk song from that area. He has toured extensively solo to folk clubs and prestigious festivals throughout the land, as well as with celebrated fiddler Tom McConville, Stu Luckley, The Hush (BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards nomination 2003), Billy Mitchell (Lindisfarne) and Jez Lowe ('Pitmen Poets'). Bob played the role of 'songman' in 'War Horse' for the past three years, both in the West End and in the UK / Ireland and South Africa touring production. Here he performs songs from the multi award-winning smash hit play, with additional stories and songs from his forty year career in the music industry. Box Office: 07792970841
