Tom McConville has for many years been regarded as the top fiddle player in the country. His live performance combines a rollercoaster of musical delights from fast, rhythmic dance tunes through beautiful slow airs and of course, great singing; - all presented with his inimitable sense of humour and style.
Renowned for his musical accompaniments, Tom has played on literally hundreds of albums. The list includes: Barbara Dickson, Richard Thompson, Allan Taylor and Lindisfarne. Tom began his career in the ever-vibrant folk scene of Tyneside. His work with a local band gave the opportunity to support his hero Sean McGuire and many other top names including The Fureys, De Dannan, John Doonan, Boys of the Lough and even a lock-in with the Dubliners.
Tom McConville has never forgotten his roots and is as happy in the intimate atmosphere of a folk club as he is at the largest festivals. He is currently touring with his own band including guitarist David Newey: a singer songwriter, and one of the most sought after accompanists in the business. David’s driving rhythm and unique style, incorporating both fingerstyle and flatpicking, has taken him to all the major festivals and concerts throughout the UK, Europe and the USA.
