‘A Night of Vintage Delights’ – Special Commissioned Work by Dark Daughter Productions & Lennon Festival Committee
Tommy Fleming has many times been described as the “Voice of Ireland” and is one of Ireland’s top entertainers with over 5 million Youtube hits and over 3 million album sales worldwide.
Tommy is regarded as one of the finest singers worldwide and is currently enjoying a hugely successful career. After 25 years honing his craft, Tommy is now taking his place at the forefront of popular music across the globe. The mere mention of a Tommy Fleming concert has ‘sold out’ signs being displayed at venues from Dublin to Darwin within the space of minutes.
Tommy turns each song into his own with his own unique and powerful style touching emotions in you that only music can reach. Tommy is famous for his own arrangement of “Danny Boy”, “Isle of Inisfree” and “Hard Times” all songs that you know and love but you have never heard them until you hear Tommy Fleming’s versions. He also covers songs from “You Raise Me Up” to “Bridge over Troubled Waters”, “From a Distance” and “Something Inside So Strong” along with many more contemporary numbers.
While Tommy’s music may be difficult to classify, fans use such words as “deeply emotional, romantic and sincere” to describe the feelings it evokes. One reviewer described his music as falling into a genre of Symphonic Pop that still awaits a name.
Tommy’s unique talent has brought him worldwide recognition with several sell-out tours in Ireland, the UK, the US, Australia and Japan and he is now critically acclaimed to be one of the worlds’ finest singers of his generation. He also toured with the great Elaine Paige and Kenny Rogers in recent years.
A Tommy Fleming concert is a musical experience not to be missed with one song more haunting than the other. He has a universal appeal to all ages and backgrounds with a fan base that is growing stronger worldwide year by year.
What some famous faces had to say about his voice…
Liam Neeson – “I hope he doesn’t take up acting.”
Eric Clapton – “His version of Danny Boy is the best I have ever heard bar none.”
Alex Ferguson – “If Tommy could play football like he sings I would sign him.”
The Boston Globe – “The dynamic voice of Tommy Fleming who soared on every song.”
New York Times – “The success of this concert was Tommy’s classic interpretation of The Leaving of Liverpool and The Auld Triangle – he had the audience on its feet”
