The Nettlebed Folk Club are bringing their first show to Harpsden Village Hall on Monday 3 April with two of the UK’s best known and loved singers Billy Mitchell (Lindisfarne, Jack the Lad, Pitmen Poets) and Bob Fox (Warhorse Songman, Fox and Luckley, Pitmen Poets).
Both men are fine singers, masters of vocal harmony and musicians of stunning ability who can bring magic into any auditorium. Their duo show features songs with a strong north-eastern flavour (including several Lindisfarne classics) celebrating the richness of life on both sides of the rivers Tyne, Wear and beyond. Billy and Bob’s close rapport, great songs and lashings of wit make this warm-hearted show ideal for audiences of virtually any age or musical persuasion.
Billy Mitchell has done it all as a performer and songwriter. He spent eight years as front man of the legendary ‘Lindisfarne’ till their retirement in 2003. Billy’s influence on the latter-day line-up of the band helped them stay as respected and successful as they had been prior to his recruitment.
Bob Fox has twice been nominated as Folk Singer of the Year at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. His masterful interpretation of traditional and contemporary songs is one of his greatest strengths. Bob was invited to join the National Theatre’s production of ‘Warhorse’ in London’s West End and subsequently the UK, Ireland and South Africa playing the role of ‘Songman’.
Doors open at 7.00 for 7.30pm start. Tickets are priced £16.
