Mr Fox

Bob Pegg's Folklore band - Mr Fox, played at the Lanch Arts festival 1971 alongside The Strawbs (with Rick Wakeman) and Ralph McTell.

"Mr Fox were an early 1970s electric folk or folk rock band. They were seen as in the ‘second generation’
of electric folk performers and for a time were compared with Steeleye Span and Sandy Denny’s Fotheringay. Unlike Steeleye Span they mainly wrote their own material in a traditional style and developed a distinct ‘northern’ variant of the genre. They demonstrate the impact and diversity of the electric folk movement and the members went on to pursue significant careers within the electric folk and traditional music genres after they disbanded in 1972 having recording two highly regarded albums."
