Folk rockers Lindisfarne's 2022 UK tour continues with not one but two shows at the Old Fire Station venuein Carlisle after the band's original November date sold out.

Lindisfarne plays the Old Fire Station on October 27thand now also on December 1st(2022). It was the Geordie legends' 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 Rod Clements, reached No. 5 as a single.

Fifty years on and the classic five-piece line up of long-time members fronted byClements(vocals, mandolin, fiddle, slide guitar) and co-founderAlan Hull'sson-in-lawDave Hull-Denholm(vocals, piano, guitars) has been wowing audiences with a unique acoustic rock experience guaranteed to get crowds on their feet.

The dates come as the Lindisfarne ‘live' experience goes to the home screen and player with a DVD release of concert performances expected later this year along with a definitive 6CD box set of the band's BBC session work dating right back to its origins.

"Meet Me On The Corner", "Lady Eleanor", "Run For Home" and "Fog On The Tyne" are all songs that continue to resonate down the years and in the process have slipped into the very fabric of British culture. 

But then Lindisfarne pretty much never went away and 50 years later continue entertaining crowds with an extensive repertoire of world-renowned songs delivered in the inimitably engaging way that has trademarked the band's stage act right back to 1970.

That's when band writers the lateAlan HullandRod Clementsemerged from Tyneside to quickly carve out a unique place for themselves fronting one of British rock's most original bands.

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 with an enviable reputation as festival favourites, while the Lindisfarne annual Christmas concerts held in their native Newcastle became the stuff of legend.

Fast forward to 2022 and today's Lindisfarne comprises a classic five-piece line up of long-time members fronted by original founder-memberRod Clements(vocals, mandolin, fiddle, slide guitar),Steve Daggett(vocals, guitars, keyboards),Paul Smith(drums),Ian Thomson(bass) and Alan Hull's son-in-lawDave Hull-Denholm(vocals, guitars, piano).
