Bob Fox makes a welcome return to the Nailers, Belper for one of his rare solo concerts away from his busy schedule as Songman in the highly successful West End hit “WAR HORSE”, which has taken him abroad and is currently on a National UK & Ireland Tour. Without a doubt Bob has one of the best voices on the British folk scene, with his velvet tones, amazing guitar work, and wonderful songs and stories.

This year sees Bob celebrating forty years as a professional singer, after spending five years as a resident at the famous Davy Lamp Folk Club, Washington, Tyne and Weir.
