Steve began his career on the Manchester, UK folk scene at the end of the ‘60s, with the Geordie band “Canny Fettle”, touring with them for eight years before embarking on a solo career.His eighth album, "Late Cut",  was released earlier this year, featuring Eliza Carthy, Martin Simpson and Sam Carter.

Bob Fox

Hailing from Seaham, County Durham, Bob started singing in folk clubs whilst qualifying as a teacher. He performed as a professional duo with Tom McConville and latterly Stu Luckley, earning a Melody Maker Folk Album of the Year in 1978. Since those days, Bob has maintained a very successful performing career.

Among other notable works, Bob's project with Benny Graham led to the CD "How Are You Off For Coals" and Bob also contributed to the 2006 BBC Radio Ballads. Nothing short of a brilliant peformer, Bob has fulfilled the role of 'Songman' in the National Theatre's War Horse production for the last ten years. He has been described as possessing one of the best folk-singing voices in England and nobody that witnessed his short performance at Falkirk Folk Club in 2017 will disagree. It is nothing short of a massive privilege to welcome him back for a full show.
