'Promoter of the Year' - 2015 Yorkshire Gig Guide Grassroots Awards
During the early '70s Lindisfarne were one of the hottest folk rock bands in England, with chart placements on two of their albums that rivaled Jethro Tull, and had them proclaimed one of the most important groups of the decade. With a sound that mixed plaintive folk-like melodies, earthy but well-sung harmonies, and acoustic and electric textures, the group seemed poised for international success. Owing to the usual vagaries of the music industry and the premature passing of founder member, Alan Hull, it never quite arrived, but the band always maintained a fiercely loyal fan base.
However, the 21st century sees Lindisfarne return to form with a classic six-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 like ‘Meet Me On The Corner’, ‘Fog On The Tyne’, ‘Lady Eleanor’ and ‘Run For Home’ and a reputation for live performance second to none, Lindisfarne’s power to galvanise festival and concert audiences remains undimmed and is guaranteed to get the crowd on its feet and singing along.
