  1. Hi Bob,
    good to see you again at the Three Counties Showground.
    Many thanks for signing the CD for Dodie, she was so pleased with it. Hope you will find the time to record some more.
    We are going to try and fix a trip to the pub next year, so hopefully we will see you then.
    Best wishes from us in Somerset.

  2. Three Counties Showground - Western Motorhome Show.

    A lesson learned? Never say never.

    What a joy it was to be booked once again by Warners Publications to play at this fantastic annual show. The weather was not kind to us with rain for most of the afternoon. I feel so humbled that so many people actually sat in the rain to listen to me sing. Between 2007 and 2010 I played a number of showgrounds, Malvern and particularly my one man show at Newbury which I did for three years running have created so many memories for me even reducing me to tears because of the reception given to me.
    2015 at Malvern brought particular joy, simply because so many of you remembered me and took the trouble to say hello and shake my hand. Most of all I will remember you for being such a daft lot who were willing to get drenched to the bone while a sang good old country.
    I do hope we can do it all again but next time in glorious sunshine.

    Much love and God bless.

  4. Hi Everyone

    As you see from my front page, I feel that it is time to give up even thinking about tramping around the country side singing good old country.
    Thank you all for your comments over the years, it has been the sound of your applause that kept me going.

    As many of you know, I suffered a heart attack some years ago and now with other health issues to battle and a pub to run it is unrealistic to think that I could re-vist those wonderful days back when.

    It was a short ten years on the road which brought me to this pub where I met my lovely wife. Come the day we retire I owe it to her to give her priority and my time.

    Love and God Bless

    Call in and see us sometime.

  5. What an absolute joy it was to see you when you called at the pub. Sorry I could not spend more time with you due to hospital appointment. Please do call again. You are welcome to pitch caravan or camper van at pub.

  6. Hello ,
    As I sit hear listening to a c.d. of yours it reminds me of the performances you gave at the Motor Caravan Shows we used to attend. We always enjoyed them. Unfortunatley the last few we went to you wer`nt there. We now have a caravan but hope to see you at a venue in the future.

    Keep it country

  15. Bob

    Hi Bob, we would just like to email you to thank you so very very much for a superb evening of entertainment last Saturday Night (20/03/10) at our pub, THE TWO BOATS INN in LONG ITCHINGTON, Warwickshire.

    The feedback we have had so far is very positive, however, you "went down" so well at THE TWO BOATS INN that we re-booked you for later this year (Saturday 4th September 2010) before you left the premises.

    Bob, you were superb, thank you so much for a lovely evening, we look forward to seeing you here twice yearly from now on.

    Kind Regards Bob,

    Chris & Michelle

  24. Hi! Bob,
    Hav'nt looked you up for a while glad to see you are still busy, you wont remember me but I was one of your fans at your extended performance at Malvern last year, don't think we can make Newbury this year but will be at Malvern again.
    Can't remember hearing you sing it but one that I think you could sing well is
    Old dogs and children and watermelon wine. maybe Malvern look forward to seeing you then.

  33. Dear Bob
    I want to thank you for putting on such a great show for us on Saturday night. As I am sure you noticed, everyone greatly enjoyed it. I hope my brother-in-law didn't annoy you too much. It was hilarious!
    I think you are a wonderful performer and am sure that you will go from strength to strength. Several people have asked me for your details so perhaps you might get more business as a result.
    Thanks again and I hope we meet again in the future.
    Best wishes

  37. great to hear from you Bob and good luck with your showcase.Hope to see you soon. Your web site is brill. I am desperately trying to do mine but not doing so well. Keeping whistling and also doing a few funerals and weddings. Maybe In a Monastery Garden is appropriate for funerals as that is so often requested as is Danny Boy. LUV SHEILA CONSTANCE ( HARROD)
