For more than 40 years BOB FOX has been regarded as one of “the iconic voices” of British folk song. Deeply influenced by the working class culture and industrial folk song prevalent in his native County Durham he has become a first-rate exponent of storytelling through song.

A career that began during the vibrant “folk revival” of the 60s and 70s in England led BOB into regular and extensive touring throughout the UK, Europe, USA, Australia and New Zealand, firstly with fellow North Easterner Stu Luckley in their groundbreaking acoustic duo and later alongside such musical heavyweights as Ralph McTell, Richard Thompson, Jethro Tull and Fairport Convention.

Bob’s masterful interpretation of traditional and contemporary song combined with an outstanding guitar technique has also earned him countless nominations in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards over the years.

This is his “Taking On Men” from his 2006 album “The Blast” (it caught my ear…. what can I say)

Bob has long been a favourite on the live circuit both as a solo artist and in his many highly successful collaborations which include a duo with Billy Mitchell (Lindisfarne), the BBC New Radio Ballads series,

Don’t miss a chance to experience his warm, rich voice, virtuoso guitar style and newly acquired melodeon playing skill. Expect to hear songs of love, joy, work and humour as he performs material from WarHorse, newly written songs from the New Radio Ballad series and old favourites from his many recordings.

You can find out a bit more on his website  @  www.bobfoxmusic.com  or just book a couple of tickets, come along  and have a great night like I am going to.

Pete Titchener - 31st May 2019 – 31/05/2019 at 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

ALBERT PARK PORT LOUNGE PRESENTS…

Pete Titchener – May 31 2019

5 Aquatic Drive Albert Park Lake (next to the Point Restaurant)

$25/$20 Cash at the door.

What can be said about Pete Titchener that hasn’t already been read out in court?

Pete migrated from the UK to Australia in 1991 and has been a nuisance ever since.

It all started innocently enough when he joined a local (Adelaide) bush band.

One thing led to another and a few years later he joined Adelaide band Colcannon. Several international tours later the band called it a day.

Pete then started working with folk legend Eric Bogle.

Recognising that one day this bubble might burst he graciously decided to offer himself as a solo performer and allow the somewhat suppressed comedic side of him to step forward.

His mother’s next-door neighbour reckons “he’s quite good” – However, you be the judge.

This show will be a good one & will sell out quickly
