The Tom McConville band is one of the most entertaining, exciting four-piece bands operating on the circuit today. Fronted by the incendiary Fiddle playing of BBC Radio 2 Musician of the Year Tom McConville (who Seth Lakeman regards as his biggest influence), this band also features Shona Kipling, herself a BBC Folk Award nominee, and one of the finest accordion players in the country. Add to that David Newey's 'incredible, unique guitar playing' (BBC Radio 6), and Phil Murray - the man Mike Harding called 'the best acoustic bass player in Britain', and you have a force to be reckoned with. Whilst this band has a backbone in traditional music, you’ll hear country, jazz, blues and rock and roll, all being delivered by an acoustic four piece.

This event will take place at Tarset Village Hall, Lanehead NE48 1NT
