Saturday 2 December TOM McCONVILLE BAND
The Tom McConville band is surely the most entertaining, exciting four-piece operating on the folk 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.
Need somewhere to stay? There are several B&Bs and hotels nearby – the nearest are on this link. There are also many self-catering holiday cottages, although these will often require a minimum 2-night stay (link here). For more village options (caravan sites, youth hostels etc), click here.
