Bob Fox and Billy Mitchell at The Memorial Hall, Reeth - 12th October 2007
We have just returned from a weekend break in Swaledale in the Yorkshire Dales. Billy and Bob playing in Reeth, one of our favourite places, too good to be true? No, we were there on Friday night, to be a part of a packed, enthusiastic audience in the village hall and what a treat it was. more >>>
Bob Fox and Billy Mitchell at Dartford Folk Club - 2nd October 2007
'Two good musicians, two voices highly acclaimed in music circles, a collection of superb songs and some of the wittiest banter and wicked jokes.' more >>>
Bob Fox and Billy Mitchell at Fairport’s Cropredy Convention - 11th August 2007

5 Star B&B - Berwick & Borders Gazette
'It's a little bit lazy to continually refer to Billy Mitchell as ex-Lindisfarne singer.
True, he did the band and its music proud over his eight-year stint, but that was then and this is now and the release of the stunning Devil's Ground showed that Billy Mitchell needs no qualification.
On B& B he is joined by fellow Tyneside folkster Bob Fox, and this CD is culled from the pair's 2006 tour (a tour they will repeat in 2007 after appearing at Cropredy).' more >>>
Billy & Bob, Queen's Hall, Hexham - Hexham Courant
'It's been two years since Billy Mitchell was last in Hexham "backtracking" his way through the music that had most inspired him.
It was good then to welcome him back, doubly good that he brought with him his friend and fellow performer Bob Fox. We heard that they had first met in the Royal Hotel more than 30 years ago.
Their musical partnership was long overdue!' more >>>
The Devil's Ground - Michael Mee
'I always thought that Billy Mitchell was somehow unfairly constrained by who he was and, rather perversely, by who he wasn't. It's not that he suffered, he's hugely respected, it's just that it's taken this album to seal his place among the very best and gain him the respect he richly deserves.' more>>>
