Lindisfarne

Lindisfarne come to Hastings

Songs from Lindisfarne’s repertoire still echo for many of us. ‘The Fog on the Tyne’. ‘Run For Home’. ‘Meet Me On The Corner’. Classics from a bygone era that still resonate today. The auditorium at St Mary in the Castle is already sold-out, but you can still buy balcony seats and watch and listen to these excellent musicians who emerged from Tyneside in the 1970s and are clearly still going strong with a lot of fans keen to see them on their latest tour. Guaranteed you’ll be toe tapping, humming or singing along with gusto!

Their pioneering sound, combining acoustic instruments like 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.

Sadly Alan Hull died in 1995 and eventually in 2003 the original band called it a day, but now they are back with a classic six-piece line up of long-time members fronted by original founder-member Rod Clements and Alan Hull’s son-in-law, Dave Hull-Denholm.

LINDISFARNE 2018 are:

ROD CLEMENTS (1969-present) Vocal, mandolin, fiddle, guitars
DAVE HULL-DENHOLM (1994-present) Vocal, guitars
STEVE DAGGETT (1986-present) Vocal, keyboards, guitars
CHARLIE HARCOURT (1973-present) Guitar, vocal
IAN THOMSON (1995-present) Bass, vocal
PAUL THOMPSON (ex-Roxy Music) Drums

You’ll get songs ranging from folk ballads, to loud, blues based, slide guitar led rock. From delicate, almost chamber jazz duos for guitar and bass, to those rousing numbers that everyone remembers and will undoubtedly join in with word-perfect accuracy.

Lindisfarne retain a reputation for live performance that is second to none, their power to galvanise a festival and concert audience remains undimmed and is guaranteed to get the anticipated capacity crowd on its feet at St Mary in the Castle.

Lindisfarne at St Mary in the Castle in Hastings on Saturday 24 March at 7.30pm. All auditorium seats have been sold but balcony seats at £21.50 are available in advance from Hastings Tourist Information Centre on the seafront (01424 451111) and Music’s Not Dead in Bexhill (01424 552435).
