Bob Pegg "Ancient Maps" 1975

Bob studied traditional music at Leeds University, where he also ran the folk club, and in the early seventies founded the cult folk/rock band Mr. Fox. The band made two albums for Transatlantic Records, and soon developed a substantial following in the burgeoning folk/rock scene of the time. With Bob's then wife Carol on fiddle and vocals and the bass/drum partnership that was later to provide the rhythm section for Dick Gaughan's Five Hand Reel, Mr Fox were renowned for their live show, which veered between the unbelievably good and the unbelievably awful!

When Mr. Fox foundered, Bob made two L.P.'s (as they were known then) with Nick Strutt and released his solo album 'Ancient Maps' in 1975. Since then Bob's work has found a broad base in education and the arts. Song cycles were commissioned by the Hebden Bridge and Ilkley Literature Festivals, he published two books on folklore and took part in many schools projects. He was Oral Historian at the Arvon Foundation in Heptonstall in 1976/7 and writer in residence in Cleveland from 1982-4. For the next three years he organised the Legal and General nationwide songsearch competition whilst writing music for T.V. and film, including the score for the Ken Loach feature 'Black Jack'.

Thanks for Bob Pegg (and all the others as well ...). Wonderful music – not easy to be found. It's nice to see so many other people like folk music too – I wouldn't have thought so.

Any chance for Bob & Carole Pegg's - He Came From The Mountains? Also early Watersons would be appreciated (by me).

Keep on keeping on ...

It certainly is...two CDs packed with wonderful and original music, so steeped in tradition that it sounds traditional, but it's not. It's full of stories too. Glad you liked it Greg.

Bob Pegg should be much better known - hopefully your blog will help, Lizardson.

Txs for Ancient Maps. Does anyone know a place where I can find The Shipbuilder (of Keeper of the Flame, since it contains it)?

I've discovered The Shipbuilder years ago, learned it almost by heart, but unfortunatelly the tape slowly decayed and now there ain't no Shipbuilder anymore in my house and my car :(

Txs in advance!
