"Scintillating fiddle, a silky smooth voice, a wide grin and a dry Geordie wit"
Tom McConville, was born and brought up on Tyneside in the North East of England. He’s one of the leading fiddle players of our time. A virtuoso musician and fantastic singer, his rich and warm voice makes his interpretation of traditional and contemporary songs greatly admired by singers throughout the world.
In great demand as a performer, session musician and teacher; playing the fiddle is his lifelong passion and he has achieved every player’s dream of creating his own unique, instantly recognizable sound.
His live performances combine 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.
"One of the greatest violinists I've
ever heard and by far the biggest
influence in my music - A true master"
"When my schoolmates had boy bands
on their Walkmans, I was listening
to Tom McConville"
"I hold Tom McConville in the highest esteem. He is, in the tradition of fine musicians to come from Newcastle - a rare talent"
