Excerpt taken from NorthEastWino with thanks

Tom Wyllie at NW&FF
The excerpt, taken from http//northeastwino.posterous.com read “.…Paul Raven of PortoVino took some convincing that it had actually been quite busy on the previous days (he’d been at another show in Manchester so was here for the first time) and even Sachins, who had done a roaring trade on the Friday and Saturday, were less than pleased at the low numbers. It wasn’t all doom and gloom though; Dennhöfer had sold a few bulk orders as had Proteas Wines, possibly people who’d been on the Saturday or Friday night were coming back on the Sunday to buy.

Further discussions were brought to a halt though when 18 year old Harry Potter lookalike Tom Wyllie started singing. Tom shall hereafter be referred to as “The Voice” as, for about half an hour, he enthralled the audience and vendors alike with a mix of Opera, Pop and Swing music receiving enthusiastic and well deserved applause – interestingly enough he’s now showing bookings on his web site from Curiously Wicked and Sachins, so it looks like the quiet Sunday footfall didn’t stop him doing good business!"

Northumbria Wine & Food Festival

Tom Wyllie Baritone Northumbria Wine Food Festival
Tom Wyllie was delighted to appear at The Northumbria Wine and Food Festival on Friday 7th October 2011, and, by popular request was asked to return today for a further appearance. The event, in its second year, brought together some of the region’s best restaurants, wine merchants, and associated exhibitors, to make for a unique and thoroughly enjoyable event.

Helen Greer, organiser of the event said "Tom's performance at the Northumbria Wine & Food Festival was the show stopper. He made everyone stop and listen with his incredible, powerful and moving voice. Tom has a singing talent like no other performer we have ever heard and with his stage charisma was undoubtedly the highlight of the festival. We would like to book him again next year if we possibly can. I, as Festival organiser, am very proud to recommend Tom and know that anyone who is fortunate enough to be at one of Tom's performances will be as thrilled and delighted as we were"

Tom was grateful to receive so much positive feedback, and sends his thanks to all those involved with the event - especially Helen & Rhian from the multi award winning Feathers Inn. Tom is very much looking forward to following up all the enquiries and bookings he received over the weekend!
