This unique combination continues to entertain people of all shapes and sizes with their wonderful selection of northern songs delivered with consummate musicianship by 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) are taking to the road together in 2020 to tour their show 5 Star B&B throughout the UK.
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, Big River, Galway Shawl and many more...
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. He only plays a handful of solo concerts every year, so catch him while you can.
