Whitby Pavilion to host folk rock legends Lindisfarne

Folk rock legends Lindisfarne’s 2023 UK tour continues with a performance this April at the Whitby Pavilion. 

It was Lindisfarne’s album ‘Fog on The Tyne’ that gave them their breakthrough in the UK.

Topping the album charts early in 1972 for four weeks, the release remained on-chart for 56 weeks in total while “Meet Me on the Corner”, one of two songs written by bassist Clements, reached No. 1 as a single.

Their roots in England’s North-East in 1968, Lindisfarne blended the mercurial songwriting talent of singer/guitarist the late Alan Hull with ‘sweet and sour’ harmonies, proud references to their homeland and a boozy, uplifting acoustic-rock swagger that won over the masses in Britain in the early 70s.

“We’re so pleased with the response we’ve been getting,” says Rod.

“Everybody loves an evening out enjoying live music and we are very grateful for the strong demand to see us!”

Rod cites an extensive back catalogue as a factor in fans returning again and again to gigs.

“We have a lot of songs,” he says, “and we make a point of rejuvenating our set list regularly which means dusting down old numbers and bringing them back to life and that’s a pleasure for us too.

“Of course,” he adds, “the hits will always be a major feature of a Lindisfarne concert, so Meet Me on The Corner, Run To Home, Fog on The Tyne and other evergreens will never go away.”

Lindisfarne is celebrated this April (2023) with the release of Radio Times – Live At The BBC 1971-1990, the definitive take on the band’s time at the Corporation offering up over eight hours of recordings over eight discs.

 With an authoritative booklet essay by Chris Charlesworth, Radio Times – Live At The BBC is a lavishly packaged set featuring 131 audio tracks, of which over 60 are previously unreleased, all fully approved by the original Lindisfarne band members and their estates.
Radio Times – Live At The BBC 1971-1990 is released on April 28th 2023 by Repertoire Records.
