Bob Wood is one of the deftest pickers and tastiest arrangers of songs it has been my pleasure to hear…a real delight!”, Steve Tilston

A seasoned and experienced performer, Bob has appeared at countless clubs and festivals throughout the UK; he has played on the albums of various others and he has featured on many radio programmes. Bob has produced a couple of solo albums When the Moon Sits Fat on a Scudding Cloud and After the Swithering which the national folk magazines have described variously as delightful, haunting, reflective and exquisite.

His outstanding guitar and vocal skills, combined with the sensitivity and empathy he brings to the music, makes him the consummate compadre on stage, a great interpreter of songs and a very fine solo artist in his own right. If I should ever write a song that I never get the chance to perform, Bob Wood is the man for the job”, Benny Gallagher (Gallagher & Lyle)

Bob was a founder member and organiser of our neighbours, the renowned Ram Folk Club.
