‘Lindisfarne were the real surprise for me at the 2017 Towersey Festival. Not being of their generation I had been unsure of just how they would go down, but they stormed it. Consummate professionals and great musicians, they surprised me with just how many of their great songs I knew, and those that I didn’t felt familiar. Wonderful stage presence and rapport with the audience, who I should say came in droves to see them. A no-brainer booking for me. One of the year’s festival highlights’ – Joe Heap – Director – Towersey Festival Ltd
Tyneside folk-rock pioneers LINDISFARNE first grabbed the attention of the country in 1970 with their debut album Nicely Out of Tune. There followed a string of memorable albums and evergreen classics including Meet Me on the Corner, We Can Swing Together, Fog On The Tyne, Lady Eleanor and Run For Home.
In 2022 and in top form, the band is pleased to return with a series of UK concerts, LINDISFARNE Up Close & Seasonal, presented by 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 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 in the Christmas spirit and singing along.
