Tom McConville, Lewes Saturday Folk Club

Tom (www.tommcconville.co.uk) is a splendid fiddle player & fine singer with a dry wit, combining the traditional music of Newcastle, Scotland, Ireland & the USA with classical, jazz & bluegrass flavours to produce a style of his own.

“Tom is a great player, and a terrific singer, he also happens to be a number one bloke too. When I was poorly Tom would always make time to visit whenever he was playing anywhere remotely near to where I live. I think Tom plays as Tom is, with honesty and passion, and an obvious love for the fiddle and traditional music. Long may you keep on bowing, Tom.
Dave Swarbrick'

Tom will give us two forty-five minute spots and the rest of the evening is filled by members of the audience performing a song or tune if they wish.

During the day Tom leads an all-day fiddle workskhop at the Royal Oak.

Everyone is welcome, especially if you'd like to sing or play. We mostly sing and play traditional music from the British Isles, but we enjoy other styles as well. We always start off with some English dance tunes for anyone with an instrument to join in.

We have a loyalty card. Six visits earn you £5 off an evening when admission is £5 or more.
