British singer to perform at folk club
The Troubadour Folk Club's next concert will feature British folk singer Bob Fox.
"For more than 40 years Bob Fox has been regarded as one of the iconic voices of British folk song," said Troubadour president Mr Michael Fine.
"Deeply influenced by the working class culture and industrial folk song prevalent in the coal mining communities of his native County Durham, he has come to be perhaps the best recognised and loved troubadour and songman in all of Britain.
"A captivating solo-performer, he is a truly amazing guitarist with a beautiful rich bass voice, the master of a treasure trove of great traditional and contemporary folk music," Mr Fine said.
Box Fox gained recognition for his starring role over the past eight years as the songman in the record breaking West End musical The War Horse.
His performance at the Troubadour in Woy Woy is part of his first overseas tour since he retired from the West End in January this year.
"Expect to hear songs of love, joy, work and humour as he performs material from War Horse, newly written songs from the New Radio Ballad series and old favourites from his many recordings," Mr Fine said.
The concert will be held at 7pm on March 23 at the Troubadour's new home at the St Luke's Church Hall in Woy Woy.
Tickets are essential.
