Tommy Fleming was born in 1971 in Aclare, County Sligo, the youngest of six children to Anne and Paddy Fleming. His natural singing ability was evident at a young age participating in local talent competitions and concerts and his performances always delivered something quite special. A chance encounter in 1993 with legendary composer and producer Phil Coulter led to Phil’s invitation to perform alongside him and his orchestra at the Opera House (Cork), the National Concert Hall (Dublin) and The University Concert Hall (Limerick). Four months later he was touring North America, playing to huge audiences all across the USA and Canada, culminating in two shows in the Boston Symphony Hall and the legendary Carnegie Hall, New York. Upon returning from the successful US tour, Tommy’s career took another leap forward when he was invited by Galway traditional group De Danann, to join them as lead vocalist, following in the footsteps of such living legends as Mary Black, Maura O’Connell, Dolores Keane and Paul Brady. This collaboration lasted three years and introduced Tommy to a worldwide audience touring Australia, Hong Kong, China and the U.S.A. Tommy also featured on the De Dannan album “Hibernian Rhapsody”.
In the ensuing years, Tommy went onto become one of the finest ballad singers in Ireland selling out far and wide. He has been described as the “Voice of Ireland” and is one of Ireland’s top entertainers with over 6.5 million Youtube hits and over 3.5 million album sales worldwide.
