Veteran folk musician Bob Fox will be the headline act for the next meeting of Ely Folk Club.

Fox has more than 40 years experience as a folk singer and musician and will bring his unique style to the city’s popular club on June 17.

Fox’s career began in 1975, when after spending five years as a floor singer around the many folk clubs in the North East of England he met Tom McConville and his career as a professional folk singer/musician began.

In 2000, Bob celebrated 25 years of singing folk songs professionally with a number of tours both in the UK and abroad, starting with an appearance as ‘special guest’ on the Fairport Convention tour and continuing with folk club tours in Britain, Holland and Canada.

He will take to the stage at the Old Dispensary, in St Mary’s Street, at 8pm.
