Local boy done good - Joby Fox supporting Damian Dempsey at Feile an Phobail 10th Aug 2013.
For Joby Fox this is a kind of homecoming as he was one of the first musicians to play at the inaugural Feile an Phobail / West Belfast Festival in 1988. As it is the 25th anniversary of the festival it is fitting that he should be performing at the festival. Joby is looking forward to putting on a special show for the community in West Belfast.
Singer/songwriter and filmmaker Joby Fox launched his ‘End of the War’ project in 2012. The album comprises beautifully crafted tracks and soundscapes that reflect on life, love and the complexities of inner and outer conflicts.
“The songs on offer are high on melody and fuelled with human emotion, resulting in each one carrying a powerful, social and political message while at the same time being beautifully wrapped up for mass consumption like an iron fist in a velvet glove.” (John Kearns, The Irish News)
Tickets for the event are £10 and available online from the festival box office
