We were delighted to be welcoming Tom McConville to The Old Nun’s Head, and even more delighted when he unexpectedly turned up with guitarist David Newey!
Tom McConville is an absolutely fantastic fiddler from Newcastle who has influenced many other fiddlers including Seth Lakeman.
Dave Swarbrick says of him “Tom is a great player, and a terrific singer …. he plays …. with honesty and passion, and an obvious love for the fiddle and traditional music.”
In 2009, Tom very deservedly won “Musician of the Year” at the BBC Folk Awards.
