'Waters of Tyne' to 'Fog on the Tyne': Billy Mitchell & Bob Fox: '5 Star B&B' tour dates
Following their tenure with the hugely successful, massive, Farewell Tour with The Pitmen Poets, two of the UK’s best known and loved singers - Billy Mitchell (Lindisfarne, Jack the Lad ) and Bob Fox (‘Warhorse’ Songman, Fox and Luckley) are taking to the road together in Spring 2020 to tour their show 5 Star B&B throughout the UK. Billy and Bob first toured together in 2006 producing the highly acclaimed ‘live’ album 'Five-Star B&B'. More tours with Bob followed and a studio album 'Back on City Road’. Their last tour as a duo was back in 2010 where their sold-out performances earned glowing reviews. Their individual busy schedules have prevented them from reuniting... until now!
And what a treat it is! The duo’s ability to connect with the audience is immediately evident as they lead you through some of their favourite songs including original Lindisfarne classics and trad folk arrangements: Sally Wheatley, Meet Me on the Corner, Dance to Your Daddy, Collier Laddie’s Wife, Clear White Light, Big River, Galway Shawl and many more..
Here’s a bit of what they do - LIVE AT THE GREAT BRITISH FOLK FESTIVAL
