This program was recorded 11/03/2012 at Symphony Space.

From the heart of Wisconsin, Dave Fox and Will Branch play a timeless kind of music for families featuring an assortment of old blues, jug band songs, fiddle tunes, New Orleans-flavored numbers and Cajun classics. With music that is heard on folk radio across the United States and Canada, it's impossible to see a Fox and Branch show without stomping, clapping and singing along.

"Fox and Branch are the best kind of musicians - making everything they play their own..." -Sing Out! Magazine

"Trust me on this: Fox and Branch will please the entire family with folksy, rootsy tunes and sing-along activities."

+ About the Artists

Dave Fox brings a deep knowledge of American roots music to the group – he began performing as a teenage member of a jug band in Madison, Wisconsin in the 1960s. His guitar work was directly influenced by the blues greats he met and spent time with during that period. In 1997, Fox was named World String Blues Champion at Avoca, Iowa.

Will Branch has made his living through music for most of his adult life. He performs often as a solo act, playing his own songs and traditional material. His first solo recording, “Press On,” received airplay on many folk radio stations in the United States and worldwide. Branch has also established himself as an in-demand children's performer, visiting schools and day care centers around the Midwest.
