Lindisfarne emerged from Tyneside in the 1970s and quickly carved out a unique place for themselves as one of British rock’s most original bands.
Their pioneering sound, combining acoustic instruments like mandolin and fiddle with their electric blues roots, proved the perfect medium to deliver the catchy, memorable songs provided by the band’s resident writers Alan Hull and Rod Clements.
Sadly Alan Hull died in 1995 and eventually the original band called it a day in 2003, but now it is back with a classic line up of long-time members fronted by original founder-member Rod Clements and Alan Hull’s son-in-law Dave Hull-Denholm.
There will be songs ranging from folk ballads, to loud, blues based, slide guitar led rock.
From delicate, almost chamber jazz duos for guitar and bass, to those rousing numbers
that everyone remembers and will undoubtedly join in with word-perfect accuracy, like the Clements-penned, Meet Me on the Corner, Lady Eleanor and the folk rock anthems, Run For Home and Fog On The Tyne.
Lindisfarne retain a reputation for live performance that is second to none, their power to galvanise a festival and concert audience remains undimmed and is guaranteed to get the anticipated capacity crowd on its feet.
