Our 2nd interview with the wonderful singer Tommy Fleming
A Sligo Man Tommy began his career after a chance meeting with composer Phil Coulter in Westport, County Mayo, that changed his career. Within a few short months of this meeting, he appeared at the Cork Opera House, and the National Concert Hall in Dublin. He then went on a tour of the United States, which included appearances at Carnegie Hall and the Boston Symphony Hall.
He then joined the group De Dannan, and his voice was brought to Australia, China, Hong Kong, and, once again, the United States. His greatest success has come as an internationally renowned soloist and he has produced 14 Albums
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.
In his interview with Muireann he recalls life growing up in his own house growing also in his own home in Donegal . The Turn of phrases that he learnt from his father makes for a very entertaining interview.
