Bob Fox, UK's greatest folk singer. Quintessential Songman in the production of War Horse.
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, The Pitmen Poets (with Jez Lowe) and most recently BOB was invited by John Tams to play the role of the folksinger/storyteller SONGMAN in The English National Theatre’s multi-award winning production of WARHORSE both in London’s West End 2011-2013, in the highly acclaimed and record breaking UK, Ireland and South Africa touring version 2013-2015 and the 10th Anniversary UK tour 2017-2019.
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.
The multiple award-winning group from Québec presents high-energy traditional French-language songs with strong vocals, acoustic and electric instruments and programming. Led by Mélisande and her husband Alexandre de Grosbois-Garand (Genticorum), the group continues to offer a fresh proposal to the folk music scene with its second album Plantons La Vigne (Borealis Records).The new album, Les millésimes, offers a collection of traditional songs carefully selected during research in various archive centres in Quebec and United States. Like great wines, good songs improve with age and Mélisande [électrotrad] took great pleasure in cooking up these reinterpretations of great vintage songs. Mélisande and her partner 'Moulin' gathered an amazing team of collaborators to give new life to these songs.

Mélisande and musical partner Alexandre “Moulin” de Grosbois-Garand purposely chose songs with a festive feel for their second album, hoping to make it groove even more than their award-winning debut. They chose the album title to suggest that great music, like fine wine, gets better with age. They selected their source material from the American Folk Life Centre at the U.S. Library of Congress as well as from the archives of the Canadian Museum of History and the University of Laval. Mélisande picked out her favorite versions of the songs while “Moulin” composed the core musical arrangements
