Geordie rockers Lindisfarne cross fingers for their Apex show! ...
Folk rock veterans Lindisfarne’s ‘2021 Fingers Crossed Tour!’ takes in Bury St Edmunds’ Apex venue on Friday 27 August.
The Geordie legends celebrate over 50 years on the road, with a set including memorable hits delivered in the inimitably engaging way that has trademarked the band’s stage act since 1970 when founders the late Alan Hull and Rod Clements emerged from Tyneside to carve a unique place for themselves in British rock music.
Their pioneering sound, combining acoustic instruments like mandolin and fiddle with their electric blues roots, proved the perfect medium for their catchy, memorable songs. The Clements-penned hit ‘Meet Me On The Corner’ paved the way for their classic ‘Fog On The Tyne’ release to become the UK’s top-selling album of 1972. Further acclaimed albums were to follow, buoyed up by powerful live performances. An accessible, unpretentious style bestowed them an enviable reputation as festival favourites.
Although the original band called it a day in 2003, Lindisfarne are now back with a classic five-piece line up of long-time members fronted by Clements (vocals, mandolin, fiddle, slide guitar) and Alan Hull’s son-in-law Dave Hull-Denholm (vocals, guitars).
They’ll be bringing a repertoire of much-loved 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 are at The Apex on Friday 27 August at 7.30pm. Ring the box office on 01284 758000 or see the website www.theapex.co.uk for more details.
