Eric Clapton called Tommy Fleming’s version of ‘Danny Boy’ the “best bar none” and Tommy has a legion of fans in his native Ireland and the UK who would agree with old Slowhand.
Boasting a unique and powerful voice which can turn any song into a magical musical experience and tap into emotions an audience did not know they had, Tommy is also big down under, with Australia waking up to his musical genius in the last few years. Touring in support of his new album ‘Begin’, his first original studio long player in six years, Tommy stops off at Falkirk Town Hall on Wednesday, September 10.
The Irish legend has not toured the UK since March 2012 and the sad death of his parents, but his eventual return to the stage was always on the cards as he ploughed back into his singing and songwriting in tribute to his late mother and father.
Featuring songs which Tommy feels have the power to comfort, soothe and inspire, ‘Begin’ has helped thousands of people going through a tough time.
Tommy’s tour takes in Cardiff, London, Manchester, Glasgow. Next week’s Falkirk show begins at 7.30 p.m.
