Award winning fiddle player and singer Tom McConville is internationally renowned for his fiery, heart-stopping performances.

Seth Lakeman and Kate Rusby count him as a huge influence. He was winner of the BBC Folk Musician of the Year in 2009 and indeed, it was Seth who presented Tom with his Musician of the Year award. He is truly the most original fiddle player in the UK. Blending traditional music from his home town of Newcastle with Irish, American and Scottish influences, he creates a sound that has jazz, folk, bluegrass and classical influence. His live performances are a roller coaster of musical delights; fast rhythmic dance tunes through beautiful slow airs and of course great singing – all presented with his inimitable sense of humour and style.
He has recorded with and appeared alongside Stephane Grappelli, Barbara Dickson, Lindsifarne, Richard Thompson and many others on well over a hundred albums – and continues to be in huge demand.
