Double header– musical weekend with Duotone plus Bob Fox – The WarHorse Songman at Kingskerswell
Kingskerswell Parish Church is offering up another of it’s weekend’s of wonderous music events with two more fine musicians and songwriters. Duotone is calling into the South Devon town on March the 11, with Bob Fox – The WarHorse Songman taking to the stage on March 12.
Duotone is the alias of songwriter Barney Morse-Brown, cellist with multi-platinum artist Birdy and BBC Folk Award winners the Imagined Village, Chris Wood, Eliza Carthy and Jackie Oates.
Duotone’s new album Let’s Get Low, written at home on his narrowboat, reveals a songwriter who is unafraid to explore real-life experiences that are often hidden from view after two years in the making, presents a new perspective on his experiences and explores the meaning of home and his sense of place.
‘This is some of the most amazing music you’ll witness’, proclaiamed BBC Radio 4. While the Observer called him ‘A hidden gem’ .

For over 40 years Bob Fox has toured extensively throughout the UK, Europe, USA, New Zealand and Australia, performing mostly solo but also alongside such musical heavyweights as Ralph McTell, Richard Thompson, and Fairport Convention.
Twice nominated as Best Folk Singer in the BBC Folk Awards Bob has long been a favourite on the live circuit.
Bob played the role of Songman in The National Theatre’s multi-award winning West End production of WarHorse 2011-2013 and subsequently in the highly acclaimed and record-breaking UK, Ireland and South Africa touring version which ended in February 2015.
Since then Bob has returned to the concert platform with his “Evening with the War Horse Songman” show and “The Pitmen Poets” project as well as doing solo performances throughout Britain and abroad.
Experience his warm, rich voice, virtuoso guitar style and newly acquired melodeon playing skill as he performs some the songs from WarHorse along with additional material from the newly written BBC Radio Ballads and old favourites from his many recordings.
This event is a great opportunity to see one of the finest exponents of storytelling through song.
