'Tom is a brilliant fiddler & great singer; a wonderful ambassador of the James Hill musical tradition.' (Aly Bain).
Tom's ground-breaking fiddle playing has had a huge influence on his contemporaries.
The traditional sounds of Newcastle, Scotland, Ireland & America are fused with classical, jazz & bluegrass. The results are timeless.
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 newer generation of musicians including Seth Lakeman & Kate Rusby.
The workshop will focus on song accompaniment & basic harmony on the fiddle, either with another artist or with oneself. Some music will be sent out in advance.
