        Tom's 'Northern swing fiddle' combines Scots/Donegal styles, with Newcastle hornpipes a speciality. He has a lovely flowing style, beautiful tone & faultless technique, & is a also a fine singer with a powerful yet mellow voice. He has played with Bob Fox, Kieran Halpin, his own band Dabhand, Alistair Anderson's Syncopace, Phil Cunningham, Barbara Dixon, Chris Newman & Pauline Cato. He's an inspiration for the new generation of musicians including Seth Lakeman & Kate Rusby.        

        Tom writes, 'The workshop will show you how to play simple tunes making them lively and danceable. To leave out the fiddly bits till later ! Everyone has a "fiddle voice " and I'll show you how to find it on your fiddle and bow.' Music will be sent out in advance.

Tom has just sent the music for the workshop by post, so I'll be copying it and sending it out very soon. We still have some places available for the fiddle workshop and for David Newey's guitar workshop the same afternoon in a different pub.

Evening tickets for Tom and David's performance at the club are still available, too.

This has nearly sold out, so don't delay. We will start a waiting list when it does.

There are still places available for David Newey's half-day guitar workshop and for Tom and David's performance at the club in the evening.

I'm enjoying the new CD 'Tommy on the Road' as I work this morning; particularly the Mike Tickell song 'Hill's Fiddle' and Tom's own 'Tune for Jerry,' which is one of his workshop pieces.
