What they say…
One of Britain’s most celebrated folk duos of all time have re-formed for an anniversary tour.

Bob Fox and Stu Luckley took the folk world by storm when they began playing together in the late 1970s. Their reputation was cemented in 1978 when they released Nowt So Good’ll Pass, their debut album. Melody Maker’s Colin Irwin wrote: "Great White Hopes of Folk are such a rarity you’ll forgive us for making an excessive fuss" and the magazine went on to award the LP its ’Folk Album Of The Year’ award.

The acclaim was justified: milestone folk albums are few and far between but Nowt So Good’ll Pass remains up there with the very best and has proved enduringly popular.

The success of the album led to Bob and Stu touring intensively. As well as performing at every major folk club and folk festival in Britain, they played in continental Europe, Australia and New Zealand and also toured with Richard Thompson and Ralph McTell.

Bob Fox has twice been nominated as Folk Singer of the Year at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

Bob and Stu will play the range of instruments featured in their original live set - including guitars, acoustic bass, dulcimer, and bouzouki - and the reunion concerts will feature all the songs from Nowt So Good’ll Pass as well as a wealth of other material from their days as a duo.

"Fox always was one of the scene's superior singers and his voice is as confident and ebullient as it ever was"  Colin Irwin Folk Roots

“As soon as I heard Bob Fox sing I realised that he must have one of the best voices in England.  I have always regarded him as an artiste of great integrity and ability" Ralph McTell

What we say…
This show is a true rarity that we’re really looking forward to. And with wonderful support, too, from angel-voiced ex-Hummingbird Cathy Burton, who provides all the proof needed of her right to be known as one of the UK’s most engaging singer/songwriters. It promises to be a wonderful evening.
