Folk rock veterans Lindisfarne return to the UK’s theatres and festivals with a tour this year of their best-loved songs.

Fielding a rich repertoire of much-loved hit songs like Meet Me On The Corner, Fog On The Tyne, Lady Eleanor and Run For Home, Lindisfarne enjoy a reputation for live performance second to none. The five-piece band is guaranteed to get crowds on their feet and singing along.

Lindisfarne perform in major towns and cities including Leeds, Edinburgh, London, Carlisle, Kinross, Liverpool, Worcester and Glasgow as well popular provincial venues and family festivals.  More dates below…

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the band’s album Fog on The Tyne hitting the number one spot in the album charts and a similar achievement for single Meet Me On The Corner, penned by co-founder and current band member Rod Clements.

“Despite everything that this pandemic threw at us and our fans, we are having a great time on the road,” says Rod.

“The big thing this year was rejuvenating our set list, keeping the hits in of course, but introducing also some other songs from our past we’ve not played for a while and that went down exceptionally well.”

Fans of live music on the small screen also have a treat coming: the band’s date at North Shields’s Exchange Theatre was filmed for a forthcoming DVD showcasing the Lindisfarne Live experience!

ABOUT LINDISFARNE

“Meet Me On The Corner”, “Lady Eleanor”, “Run For Home” and “Fog On The Tyne” are all songs that continue to resonate down the years and in the process have slipped into the very fabric of British culture. 

But then Lindisfarne pretty much never went away and 50 years later continue entertaining crowds with an extensive repertoire of world-renowned songs delivered in the inimitably engaging way that has trademarked the band’s stage act right back to 1970.

That’s when band writers the late Alan Hull and Rod Clements emerged from Tyneside to quickly carve out a unique place for themselves fronting 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 for their catchy, memorable songs.

The Clements-penned hit “Meet Me On The Corner” paved the way for their classic ‘Fog On The Tyne’ release to become the UK’s top-selling album of 1972.

Further acclaimed albums were to follow, buoyed up by powerful live performances. An accessible, unpretentious style bestowed them with an enviable reputation as festival favourites, while the Lindisfarne annual Christmas concerts held in their native Newcastle became the stuff of legend.

Fast forward to 2022 and today’s Lindisfarne comprises a classic five-piece line up of long-time members fronted by original founder-member Rod Clements (vocals, mandolin, fiddle, slide guitar), Steve Daggett (vocals, guitars, keyboards), Paul Smith (drums), Ian Thomson (bass) and Alan Hull’s son-in-law Dave Hull-Denholm (vocals, guitars, piano).
