Bob’s folk club visit

Chichester Folk Song Club welcomes Bob Wood as their guest on Tuesday, August 7.

Club spokesman Kerry Manning said: “Bob hails from the west of Scotland but is based nowadays in London. A warm and engaging solo singer and performer with an easy-going sense of humour, he is known also as a highly-accomplished finger-style guitarist. Exploring a range of open tunings, his playing and song interpretations have been described as displaying a rare sensitivity, lightness of touch and great technique.
“Bob’s regular repertoire nowadays retains firm links with the tradition, but includes also a splendid array of more contemporary songs. Expect therefore to hear material ranging from Robert Burns to Pete Morton; from Archie Fisher to Hank Williams; plus a smattering of pipe, harp and other tunes on guitar.
“A seasoned and experienced performer, he has guested at countless clubs and festivals throughout the UK, but this will be his first visit to Chichester.”

The start time is 8.30pm at the skittle alley, 4 Chesnuts, 234 Oving Road, Chichester. Cost: £5 (£2 for members).
