Tom Mitchell

Tom Mitchell’s heritage is steeped in musical history. His father Billy Mitchell fronted Tyneside bands Jack The Lad and Lindisfarne and continues to have a successful solo career. Tom, inspired by Billy’s legacy, decided to make his own mark and at the tender age of twenty one embarked on his own solo career.

Having fronted bands since the early age of twelve as a guitarist, piano player and lead vocalist, Tom had plenty time to hone his craft and develop his confidence and command of audience, immediately evident when he takes to the stage. He makes a connection with each and every person which he maintains throughout his shows. His technical ability is astounding and indicative of a sincere dedication to his art.

BBC Radio 2 Folk Award finalists, Tarras recognised Tom’s potential at the age of seventeen. Consequently he was headhunted to join the group for their final tour playing full capacity venues. He went on to take to the stage with his Dad when he joined The Billy Mitchell Band in 2005, playing two national tours culminating in a sell out ‘home-ground’ concert at The Sage, Gateshead.
