Award winning fiddle player and singer Tom McConville is internationally renowned for his fiery, heart-stopping performances. Winner of the BBC Folk Musician of the Year in 2009, 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.
Joining Tom will be English bagpipes and accordion duo David Faulkner and Steve Turner. A local due with a national and international outlook. Steve and David have been playing together for 25 years and have performed at many events and festivals across Britain and Europe.
