In addition to headliner Chris Fox, we have 8 talented young acts performing two songs each.

Chris Fox is a professional musician living and working in Cambridge. Singer songwriter, Guitarist, Performer and session musician Chris has been a full time artist since May 2016 when he left the corporate world behind to pursue a career in music.Chris has been playing guitar since his teens, but only started song writing and performing in early 2014. Starting out at open mic nights Chris has crafted his stage presence in and around Cambridge and increasingly now performing further afield. To date his accomplishments are plentiful including an interview and  live performance on BBC radio Cambridgeshire, support for Boo Hewerdine, Sean Roberts & Kathryn Lakeman, Brookes Williams, Lucy Ward and Ange Hardy to name but a few.

A "seriously accomplished guitar player with a powerful yet expressive voice'" Chris clearly transcribes songs of the human experience in anelectic range of styles across the folk and roots spectrum; writing and performing songs using a new roots soundscape that encompasses a cultural whiplash of Folk (both trad & contemporary), Americana, Country, and Blues.

His song writing style is centered around contemporary stories reflecting life, love, loss, and humour. After releasing his debut album'Parallel crossing' in May 2016 Chris followed up with 'Loose Ends' in 2017 released at Ely and Cambridge Folk Festivals.

BSAC is Bishop’s Stortfords longest running Acoustic night who opened their doors in 2002, founded by Keef Jackman and Drew Bonnington, and over the years have featured, then unkown acts, such as Sam Smith, Matt Cardle, George Ezra, Charlie XCX,  Eric Roache and  Jon Gomm to name but a few!

With a strong tradition of promoting every genre of Acoustic Music from seasoned veterans to youngsters making their first appearances, BSAC welcome all!
