Veteran folk rockers Lindisfarne take to the stage at Sheffield's 02 Academy this April.

It was back in 1970 that the late Alan Hull and Rod Clements emerged from Tyneside to carve out a unique place for themselves fronting one of British rock's most original bands.

Famed for hits such as "Run For Home", "Meet Me On The Corner" and "Lady Eleanor", the ever-popular Geordies under the steerage of Clements enjoyed a run of sell-out appearances in 2023 at over 50 venues nationwide.

Says Rod: "We're not exactly shoe-gazers - we have a lot of fun on stage and I feel that seeps into the audience so that we all wind up sharing the moment.

"People keep coming back to Lindisfarne and while that carries on, we carry on. Each year we seem to put on more shows and we're thrilled to be playing the 02 Academy".

February also sees the first-ever release of legendary late 1960s demos from Alan Hull.

A 4CD, 90-track anthology ‘Singing A Song In The Morning Light' includes no less than 77 hitherto-unreleased tracks, with several dozen titles previously undocumented.

The set features revelatory early demos of "Lady Eleanor", "Winter Song", "Scarecrow Song", "Clear White Light - Part 2" and other Lindisfarne classics, the original, semi-mythical "Clear White Light - Part 1", recordings with backing from Alan and Rod's former band Brethren and psychedelic band Skip Bifferty as well as other collaborations alongside many solo performances.

Almost 30 years after Hull's tragically early passing, ‘Singing A Song In The Morning Light' is a thrilling addition to the body of work left behind by one of the all-time great British songwriters.

The anthology is released by Cherry Red Records on February 23rd2024.

"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. 

In 2024, Lindisfarne are set to entertain 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.

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.

Today's Lindisfarne comprises a classic five-piece line up of long-standing members fronted by original founder-member Rod Clements (vocals, mandolin, fiddle, slide guitar), Steve Daggett (vocals, guitars, keyboards), Paul Smith (drums), Ian Thomson (bass) and Alan Hull's son-in-law Dave Hull-Denholm (vocals, guitars, piano).
