Tom McConville & Michael Biggins

Great to have Tom back at Coal Aston and what a delight to have Michael along for his 1st visit. As a duo they were simply sublime throughout the evening, Toms' incredible playing and brilliant voice accompanied by Michael throughout with the added bonus of a couple of his solo spots including the set of tunes which won him the coveted award this year as 'BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician Of The Year' AMAZING

Tom Mcconville and Michael Biggins are top musicians who have been awarded BBC Folk Musician Of The Year and BBC Scottish Trad Musician of the Year independently.

The sum of the two talents, combined with Tom’s rich singing, is astounding and has left their audiences spellbound.

Tom ‘s fiddle and Michael’s piano and Accordion playing is amongst the finest there is, powerful and exciting with a range of songs performed in great style. They have a range of music including Irish, Scottish, Bluegrass and Jazz and songs all performed with a great sense of style, verve and humour!  

One of the most memorable evenings of music to be found.

I feel this was probably the best folk - club spot I've experienced in a good long time. We first heard Tom McConville play back in the '80s at the Norwich folk festival with Kieran Halpin. We have seen him play quite a few times since. His fiddle playing is off the scale of brilliance - often reminiscent of Stephane Grappelli and he still has a beautiful powerful and accurate voice. Michael Biggins' piano accompaniments were absolutely technically perfect, sensitively empathetic to Tom's playing and the arrangements were harmonically creative and full of artistry. This was an altogether faultless performance from both men and one which I shall treasure in my memory for a long time. And to cap it all - they are both so professional; no fuss, no pretensions, just perfectly delivered musicianship. Thank you both.
