Fronted by the incendiary fiddle playing of BBC Radio 2 Musician of the YearTom McConville (who Seth Lakeman regards as his biggest influence), The Tom McConville Band features Shona Kipling, one of the finest accordion players in the country, David Newey‘s “incredible, unique guitar playing” and Phil Murray – the man Mike Harding called “the best acoustic bass player in Britain” – creating a force to be reckoned with.

While this band has a backbone in traditional music, you’ll hear country, jazz, blues and rock and roll, entertainment, virtuoso playing and sheer enjoyment.

“One of the greatest violinists I’ve ever heard and by far the biggest influence in my music – A true master” – Seth Lakeman

“When my schoolmates had boy bands on their Walkmans, I was listening to Tom McConville”– Kate Rusby
