Tom Hamilton was Ayrshire born, moved to the east end of Glasgow in the mid 1960s and then moved ‘doon the watter’ to the Isle of Bute seven years ago and now lives somewhere between Dumbarton and Helensburgh!
His first experience of live music was in December 1975 seeing Queen at the famous Glasgow Apollo.
The habit has continued ever since leading to a few years promoting touring acts in Glasgow starting in September 1998 with singer/songwriter Neal Casal.
Tom went on to promote the likes of Dave Alvin, Martin Simpson, The Handsome Family, Si Khan, Damien Jurado, Show of Hands and varies other acts that he admires and organised British tours for Ramsay Midwood and Chicago rock-a-billly outfit The Riptones.
Tom met Celtic Music Radio while working in The Glasgow Royal Concert Hall and joined the team in mid 2010.
Tom’s ambition on Celtic Music Radio is to find new acts to let others hear.
So please email Tom if you are a singer/songwriter or a band and send in your music for us all to hear!
