IF you want to experience Lindisfarne, don’t head north.

Don’t even meet them on the corner; head to Worcester instead, next month.

The legendary 70s folk-rock pioneers Lindisfarne will be performing at the Huntingdon Hall.

A spokesman said: “Lindisfarne returns to form with a classic five-piece line up of long-time members fronted by original founder-member Rod Clements on vocals, mandolin, fiddle and slide guitar.

“With a repertoire of unforgettable songs, such as Meet Me On The Corner, Fog On The Tyne, Lady Eleanor and Run For Home, and a reputation for live performance that is second to none, Lindisfarne’s power to galvanise festival and concert audiences remains undimmed.”

The spokesman added: “Established in 1968 and originally going by the name ‘Brethren’, Lindisfarne is an English folk rock band hailing from Newcastle upon Tyne. The original line-up comprised Alan Hull (vocals, guitar, piano), Ray Jackson (vocals, mandolin, harmonica), Simon Cowe (guitar, mandolin, banjo, keyboards), Rod Clements (bass guitar, violin) and Ray Laidlaw (drums).

“Over the years the band’s line-up has changed a number of times, most recently with Charlie Harcourt’s departure from the band, when he retired last year. The current line-up comprises Rod Clements (vocals, mandolin, fiddle, guitar), Dave Hull-Denholm (vocals, guitar), Steve Daggett (vocals, keyboard, guitar), Ian Thomson (bass, vocal), and Paul Thompson (drums).

“Don’t miss the chance to see this truly remarkable band on Huntingdon Hall’s stage.”

The date for the diary will be Friday April 26 at 7.30pm.
