Known as the Newcastle Fiddler, Tom’s live performances combine a rollercoaster of musical delights from fast, rhythmic dance tunes , through beautiful slow airs, with great singing. Renowned for his musical accompaniments, Tom has played on literally hundreds of albums. The list includes: Barbara Dixon, Richard Thompson, Allan Taylor and Lindisfarne. Whilst he has shared stages throughout the world with Stephan Grappelli, Sean McGuire, Mark O’Connor, Paul Brady and The Chieftains, Tom has never forgotten his roots and is as happy in the intimate atmosphere of a small folk club as he is at the largest festivals.
Tom won Musician of The Year in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2009.
