about fool's gold

Carol and Steve Robson are 'Fool's Gold'; a multi-instrumental acoustic duo, usually to be found performing their unique 'Stories' shows which incorporate the live music with the stories about the songs and stunning projected visuals.

FG plays all over the UK and could play for you...


This is our big news of the moment! We have been very busy planning our shows - we are improving and refreshing the existing shows and have added a brand new show to the list;

Ladies and Gentlemen, we a proud to present - 'Bang up to the Elephant!'

The existing shows are still available too - but, you'll want to know more...

about the shows

We play all over the UK (and beyond) to all manner of audiences in Theatres, Village Halls, Function Rooms and once, in a one-metre square plastic box (and it was dark)! 

We have several shows to choose from, all with a mix of songs, original and very well-known, and all with fascinating tales...


Some selected quotes 

(we didn't ask them to say it - they just did!)

We all really enjoyed the evening, and hopefully we will see you again before not too long.

I will certainly recommend you to others too.

I attended last nights gig at the Trefoil Guild, and I just had to email and thank you again. I thoroughly enjoyed your show, it was absolutely fascinating. I love to learn, so hearing the stories was equally enjoyable ☺️ I’ve never seen anything quite like it, and it’s great!
