Bob’s love of the blues started in the 1960s, listening to The Rolling Stones who were then playing numbers from Muddy Waters, Howling Wolf and Jimmy Reed. He bought the records of these old bluesmen and began a musical odyssey back in time through the 50s, 40s and 30s to the early blues and jug band recordings of the 20s.

During the 70s and early 80s, Bob appeared at folk clubs and pubs, sometimes solo, more often with a harmonica player – notably his schoolfriend, Keith Miller. He returned to playing the blues and recorded an album Cow Pie – The First Thirty Years with Keith Miller and Richard Bolton.

In October 2006, Bob appeared in The Tommy Johnson Blues Festival in Crystal Springs, Mississippi and played at The Mardi Gras and 930 Blues clubs in Jackson. In 2007 and again in 2010 he returned to Mississippi for The Second and Fifth Tommy Johnson Festival.

When at home in Hampshire, England, his gigs are mostly in pubs, restaurants and festivals, notably, Blues & Booze In The Bury at Odiham. He is a frequent performer at Sway Acoustic Blues in The New Forest and he runs a monthly blues jam at The Platform Tavern in Southampton, Hampshire.
