“Billy and Bob’s vocal performances aren’t so much good, as towering!” (Brian Coles)
Billy began playing guitar in the ’60s when they were all made of wood and mostly the same colour. After a misspent youth in various bands including Jack the Lad, he formed Maxie & Mitch with Pete McIntyre and spent the last 20 years playing music in a funny way to anyone after a laugh. In 1996 Billy joined Newcastle’s favourite sons; the critically acclaimed Lindisfarne.
Durham-based Bob Fox is among the best-loved and hardest working singer/guitarists in Britain. His fine voice and his repertoire of traditional songs and contemporary material appeal to all ages. Bob has been featured on national radio and television, won several awards, and was nominated by the BBC as Folk Singer Of The Year 2004. ‘The most complete male artist in English Folk’ – The Daily Telegraph, ‘One of the best voices in England’ – Ralph McTell.
