2022 September Festival: Lindisfarne

September 10 @ 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm

£32

LEGENDARY 70s folk-rock pioneers LINDISFARNE will headline the opening night of the 2022 St Ives September Festival at The Guildhall.

The Geordie icons will bring a classic five-piece line-up of long-time members, fronted by one of the originals – 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 singing along.

LINDISFARNE emerged from Tyneside in the 1970s and quickly carved out a unique place for themselves as one of Britain’s most original rock bands. Their pioneering sound, combining acoustic instruments such as 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. Their first hit, the Clements-penned Meet Me On The Corner, paved the way for their classic Fog On The Tyne to become the UK’s top-selling album of 1972.

LINDISFARNE’S unforgettable songs, powerful live performances and unpretentious style led to worldwide success and an enviable reputation as festival favourites and the annual Christmas concerts they presented in their native Newcastle became the stuff of legend.

The original band called it a day in 2003 but now LINDISFARNE are back fronted by “original” Rod Clements and Alan Hull’s son-in-law Dave Hull-Denholm (vocals and guitar). The 2022 band line-up is:

ROD CLEMENTS (1969-present) Vocal, mandolin, fiddle, guitars

DAVE HULL-DENHOLM (1994-present) Vocal, guitars

STEVE DAGGETT (1986-present) Vocal, keyboards, guitars.

IAN THOMSON (1995-present) Bass, vocal

PAUL SMITH Drums.
