Tom’s opportunity

Tom Barras, a 16-year-old musician from Bridgnorth, has been selected to showcase his talent at Arena Birmingham on the Firestone Stage in November. Tom, who as half of Guitar Cubed won a Pride of Shropshire award following a 25-hour marathon busk, was selected from a huge number of applicants for the chance to perform at one of the Midland’s premier venues. Tom is now launching his solo career and recently had the opportunity to support one of his favourite bands, Skaburst, at the Haygate in Telford.

“The opportunity to play the Firestone Stage is another big step in my musical ambitions and I’m looking forward to it,” said Tom.
