Morpeth Market Place

22082015 Morpeth Market Place
Saturday saw Tom return to Morpeth Market Place for the second of his summer concerts there. As ever, everybody was very kind and welcoming, and he had a blast! He tried out one or two new songs on his audience this time, mixed in with some favourites. The weather was kind, and despite the forecast of thunder, it held off and we even saw a little sunshine. We'd like to thank everyone for their company and comments both in person and on "Morpeth Matters" - they are much appreciated and we are glad you enjoyed Tom's performance. Thanks too to all who bought his Cd(s), and to those who wished the had - you can buy them on this website, so it's not too late!!

Tom has had a busy couple of weeks with gigs at La Torre in Bedlington, a lovely combined 50th Birthday/Pearl Wedding Anniversary Party at The Old Comrades Club in Morpeth, Vercelli's in Hexham and Morpeth Market Place.

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 sang between 1pm and 4pm in the sunshine. Take a look at MorpethNewsTV's video here. Tom will be back in Morpeth Market Place on Saturday 22nd August, between 1pm and 4pm - so why not come along and bring the sunshine with you! For now though Tom is off on holiday for a couple of weeks!

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.

August Round-up

Whilst Tom was busy in August - this wasn't reflected on this page! So, here is a quick round up of his public gigs last month.

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.

31st August saw Tom back at Marabini's once again! Marabinis is never dull, and there was a great atmosphere. Tom gave an extended set of his classical repertoire, and was in good form.

Tom's family were there celebrating his Dad's birthday, so it was a great opportunity to sing Happy Birthday to his Dad, and put the traditional Sombrero on his head!

Tom's next public performance is on
26th September - back at Marabini's! He'll hope to see you there!

Tom Wyllie performed in Market Place Morpeth today to a really friendly and appreciative audience. Our thanks to the many people who stopped to offer kind words, and to the people who bought one (or in some cases both!) of Tom's CD's.

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.

Frank Rescigno, Director, Arts & Culture, at Greater Morpeth Development Trust, later wrote:

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?
