Tommy Fleming returns to the Kilworth stage
Fans of Tommy Fleming will be delighted to hear that he returns with his acoustic show to The Village Arts Centre, Kilworth on Thursday, October 10.
Tommy Fleming rose to fame in the early 1990s after he was asked to tour the US with Phil Coulter. He soon established himself as a solo artist, he found his greatest success singing traditional Irish music with his unique and dynamic bel canto tenor voice.
With Phil Coulter, he went on a tour of the United States, which included appearances at Carnegie Hall and the Boston Symphony Hall.
On his return, he joined the group De Dannan and with them, he toured Australia, China, Hong Kong and many other far flung places. Having left De Dannan in 1996, he went on to pursue a hugely successful solo career and while he has played in all the major concert halls, he loves the intimacy that the Kilworth venue provides.
Tommy Fleming lives in Enniscrone, County Sligo, with his wife, Tina. When asked how he would describe his genre of music he confessed that it is 'not opera nor rock 'n' roll', explaining that he is just 'very traditional' and likes 'a song with a good story'.
