The Fox and The Owl
Hailing from Bournemouth on the south coast of England, The Fox and The Owl are a 5 piece band whose sound is defined by the vocal harmonies of Lucy and Lauren, with backing provided by James, Rich and Paul. Whilst loosely defined as Folk, our music is influenced by Reggae, Blues, and Jazz.
With sets that include many original songs and a few carefully chosen covers, whether we are playing a sunny festival field, a vibrant pub, or a wedding or special occasion, we like to tailor our performance to the occasion.
Most importantly though, we play because we like to. We hope you like it too.....
Lucy is studying for her Masters in Songwriting and you can usually find her scribbling down ideas or recording in her makeshift wardrobe studio. Endlessly curious, she loves travel, and maps and new experiences. She is never lost and is known as our solar powered sat nav.
Lauren loves to commune with nature. In her spare time she grows food, talks to cats and sit in fields. She feels at home in the winter but loves the summer sun, although even then she is never without a blanket…
Rich spent many years promoting bands before ever being in one. He loves to be outdoors camping and doesn’t start any day without 20 mins of yoga. If he doesn’t do this he says that his knees ache for the rest of the day.
James plays percussion and sometimes Squeezebox. He's an outdoors type, loving a bit of camping, kayaking and communing with nature.
Paul plays Bass, or guitar, or anything else with strings really. He has come on permanent loan to us from his other band 'the Mother Ukers' and is the eternal Journeyman of the music scene.
