Fox and Branch

Family Folk Music

For over two decades, Dave Fox and Will Branch have energized audiences in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., and Ireland. Their dynamic mix of old-time music, original songs, and family folk music has appealed to children and adults, giving everyone a chance to actively participate.

Fox and Branch recordings have won five Parent’s Choice recommended awards. The duo has appeared at festivals such as the Winnipeg Folk Festival, The Philadelphia Folk Festival and The Westport Folk and Bluegrass Festival (Westport, Ireland). They have been featured at venues like The National Theater in Washington D.C., Symphony Space in New York City, Club Passim in Boston and The Overture Center in Madison, WI.

Whether it’s at a theater, a school performance, a community event, or a library show, Fox and Branch entertain, educate, and actively engage people. Their aim is to create a communal atmosphere of fun and high spirits shared by all those present.

Fox & Branch are masters of family-centric, audience-participation shows.

Amidst the pop-rock focus of most modern kids music, I appreciate those artists like Fox & Branch who've maintained their interest in the folk tradition.  They're one of the best practitioners in the field right now...

Although their albums are great, Fox & Branch's drawing card is their interactive, informative, and entertaining live show, so make sure to catch them in concert if possible!

Yes, Fox & Branch can work a (romper) room, and are masters of family-centric, audience-participation shows.  But the kids won't be the only ones smiling.

Fox and Branch have shared their talents with kids at each of our four sessions of Day camp and every time it was a huge hit.  Their concerts are so dynamic and engaging, and the kids absolutely loved it! Will and Dave never disappointed; their music and presentation is very accessible for the kids, and their positive energy, humor and talents were gifts to our participants and Day Camp program.

I don't know how you managed to engage such a diverse group of kids and elders, but it was obvious that they were having the time of their lives...It felt like the Pied Piper had come to Milwaukee!

All of you who still hold fond memories of the Jerry Garcia / David
 Grisman CD Not For Kids Only, pay attention. Did You Hear That? (2007)

 CD is continued here - genial renditions of folk classics, smartly
The skilled musicianship is evident in the performances on the guitar, fiddle, washboard, and banjo; the fun sings through loud and clear.

Fox and Branch gave 4 different performances in Manistique, each program perfectly tailored to the students attending. I particularly noticed certain students who normally would not like ‘this kind of thing’ having a GREAT time. Dave and Will are excellent at engaging kids, wonderful musicians, and they are very organized and on time – great to work with!!
