20170908: Friday 8th September: Bob Fox
Support: Cambridge and Walker
Bob Fox's remarkable 40 year career has taken him from small Folk Clubs in the North East to London's West End. Perhaps best known for his long and successful collaboration with Stu Luckley, he has also worked with Tom McConville and Benny Graham, and was involved with the 2006 Radio Ballads, directed by John Tams. His first stint as 'Songman' in War Horse began in 2011, and he is about to take up the role again. Bob characterises himself as a singer first and an instrumentalist second; his great renditions of such different songs as Jez Lowe's "Dreams Never Leave You" and Ewan MacColl's "Champion at Keeping Them Rolling" demonstrate the range of his material.
"One of the great voices of the whole of the Folk Revival," John Muirhead, Living Tradition.
The duo Cambridge and Walker is the result of a mutual interest in traditional songs, especially harmony singing, arising from individual performances at Black Fen Folk Club. David Cambridge (vocals/guitar/guzouki) has been building a reputation in and around Cambridge, and has such a love of the guitar that he spends a good deal of his time building them. Jenna Walker (vocals/melodeon/piano accordion), a well-established local singer, is currently completing a Masters in Folk Music. Since they first sang as a duo in Autumn 2016, the responses of friends and audiences have convinced them to carry on. They have since appeared on local radio; at various folk clubs in East Anglia; at the 2017 City Roots and Speakout events in Cambridge; and at Ely and Cambridge Folk Festivals. More gigs beckon this Autumn!
