Our thanks to one and all, and in particular congratulations to Louise and Dave Brown on reaching your Pearl Wedding Anniversary, and for having such a great party, that raised over £1,000 for charity! Tom acted as both entertainer and compère for the evening, a role he thoroughly enjoyed. Dave were kind enough to say:
"Thank you for your help in making Louise and my anniversary and Louises (forthcoming) birthday function a fantastic night last night. As always you stole the show and made it memorable for all the right reasons. We are looking forward to seeing you again soon"
Morpeth Market Place was great too! The Morpeth Town Team have organised Music in The Market Place each Saturday over the summer. Tom received so many lovely comments many of them on "Morpeth Matters", some of which we will post on the testimonials page soon.
Tom's next public performances are at Davanti Classico, Tynemouth on Friday 7th August and at Vercelli's, Hexham on Saturday 8th August. Details of Tom's forthcoming public gigs can be found here. For those of you who enjoyed Tom in the Market Place, why not come along to Horton Grange for an "Evening with Tom Wyllie" where he sings lots of his Classical/Musical Theatre/Easy Listening repertoire? He has dates there right through until next April.
The previous post made mention of Tom's performance in Morpeth Market Place on 3rd August, which seemed to go down well. Not only did he get lots of great feedback on the day, but he has subsequently received enquiries about purchasing further copies of "crescendo" and "Il Divino".
Hi we bought "Crecendo" a few weeks ago in the market place Morpeth. A real treat for us to stand and listen to Tom singing! We bought this CD and wish we had bought them both!

We are working on a face lift and re-launch of Tom's website, and very much hope to be able to make his CDs available for purchase online.
On both 10th and 24th August, Tom performed at The Boat Inn at Kielder, entertaining holidaymakers at Leaplish. He sang from all parts of his repertoire and was taking requests. Regulars won't be surprised that Tom ended the night with people up and dancing! They were great nights in a lovely setting. The summer season at Leaplish has drawn to a close, with the end of the school holidays, but Tom hopes to return to the Boat Inn again.
Tom's next public performance is on 26th September - back at Marabini's! He'll hope to see you there!
Thankfully, the sun shone, even if it was a little windier than we've been used to lately, and people were able to visit the wonderful stall in the Market Place, whilst listening in to Tom's music. He sang from his Classical and Musical Theatre repertoire, but also included some Take That, Keane, Lumineers and Michael Bublé, plus lots more.
On 3 August Tom Wyllie performed in Morpeth as part of the annual Summer Time series of events. It was also the day of the Morpeth Farmers Market so it added a special twist to the day. I have received many comments about how much people enjoyed his singing from visitors and stall holders. The stall holders told me that this was an unexpected treat and we should do this more often. Some thought it was a CD playing and were pleasantly surprised that it was a live performance. Tom gave the people of Morpeth a very enjoyable afternoon of music and many said how much they enjoyed it. Tom, thank you for making this a very special afternoon.
For those that missed Tom's performance today, his next public gig is next Saturday, 10th August, up at The Boat Inn, Leaplish, Kielder. It's a beautiful setting looking out over the reservoir, so why not come along for a lovely meal and have Tom entertain you?
