In December 1988 Blairgowrie accordionist and entertainer, Tommy Newcomen, along with his wife Irene, decided to open a small record shop called The Music Box, in their home town of Blairgowrie in the heart of Perthshire. Over the years they have traded from seven different shops in the town, expanding each time. Now The Music Box, offers one of the biggest and best selections of Scottish and Irish recordings in the country on CD and DVD. 

Tommy, who has been associated with the Scottish music scene for over forty years, says that despite the change in the way people buy their music, with the introduction of the Internet and online stores, his customers still enjoy browsing through the thousands of recordings on offer because they know they will always get the best of attention. Apart from one of the biggest and best selections of Scottish and Irish music in the country, the shop, which can now be found at 27 Arthur Street, in the heart Blairgowrie, has recordings for all ages and musical tastes from Jimmy Shand to Tina Turner. Other CDs in stock include Irish Country, Bothy, Country, New Country, Line Dance, Golden Oldies, Big Band and Jazz, Singers from the 30s to the 70s, Classical, Comedy, Party and Sing-a-Long, Rock n Roll, Easy Listening and chart music (to order). 

With the help of his wife and family, he also promotes live Scottish and Irish shows. Over the last few years these shows have included names such as Billy Anderson and Albany, The Tartan Lads, comedian and singer Eddie Rose, Jim Reid, Da Fustra, Fintan Stanley, Dermot O’Brien, Shawn Cuddy, Dominic Kirwan, Barnbrack, Sean O’Farrell, Ann Breen, Mary Duff, Paddy OBrien, Paula MacAskill and many more. Tommy says it is a great tonic to see the audience reaction to the live shows and to know that they are helping to keep the Scottish and Irish music to the fore. 

One of the most successful shows was the Tuesday Blairgowrie Highland Night, which Tommy organised and performed at from April to the end of September for 11 great years. This show was held in the towns Angus Hotel and attracted full house for every night of it’s 22 week run during each season. Sadly the venue became unavailable, at the end of 2008, and the show was unable to find another suitable venue. 

Tommy is also involved in the recording scene, and has now made several CDs, and DVDs on the Irish A-One record label and his music has been used on many scenery DVDs produced by the border based company A.T. Videos. 

Tommy hopes that by continuing to provide a good service and staging live music events, The Music Box will be around for many years to come, promoting Scottish and Irish music to a new generation.
