Over 50 years on, Tom’s musical journey has taken him from the North East folk clubs in the early 70s, a duo with Bob Fox, a stint with the folk rock band Magna Carta, a memorable partnership with Kieron Halpin, several USA visits with his band Dab Hand and many other collaborations along the way, contributing to recordings by everyone from Barbara Dickson, Richard Thompson, Allan Taylor and Lindisfarne.

Tom will be appearing with long time musical partner Dave Newey.
