The Topic Folk Club - Bob Pegg at Glyde House
Music, Thu 17 Nov 2016, £7
Musician and bandleader Bob Pegg was one of the hotter talents in the British folk-rock boom of the late 1960's and early 1970's.
He had previously cut a pair of albums on Transatlantic Records with his wife Carole, who sang and played the fiddle. They organized Mr. Fox, a moderately successful folk-rock band of the turn of the decade, which lasted together for two years and a pair of albums. The Peggs' marriage split up in 1971 (after which she billed herself as Carolanne Pegg), around the same time that Mr. Fox ceased to exist, but they both continued to record for a time for Transatlantic.
Since then, Pegg has remained active as a singer, songwriter, and recording artist. He cut one duet album with his former bandmate Nick Strutt, who also worked with Pegg on his second album, a solo Pegg effort, and has seen his material covered by other artists, including Tom Lewis. Bob Pegg's recordings in the 1990's and beyond appear on the Rhiannon Records label.
As a storyteller, musician and workshop leader, Bob has worked with people of all ages, from pre-school groups upwards, and he has performed in venues as varied as a Viking farmstead in the wilds of Iceland and the Royal Festival Hall in London.
Bob first appeared at The Topic, with his wife Carole, on December 20th 1968 - the night before Apollo 8 lifted off to make the first orbits of the Moon.
