Thom is an accomplished accordionist and a spectacular entertainer. Crowd dancing, requests and even "tears" ... From French to Scottish, fromTango to Musette, Thom loves pleasing. Highly recommended- BRAVO!

I recently heard Thom playing continental accordion in a French restaurant (Chez Jules) in Edinburgh. he played everything with feeling and also with regard to the diners in the restaurant ie not too loud, which certainly added to the ambience. Judging by the number of diners who took the time to thank him when they were leaving the venue, his music was very much appreciated by all.
