Lindisfarne at Lavenham
Historic Lavenham is one of the UK’s most beautiful medieval villages located in the heart of Suffolk, in central East Anglia; and Lavenham Church is an Anglican Church serving an active and thriving community and attracts many thousands of visitors each year.
Both of which extend a warm welcome to all, and exclusively on Friday 20th October 2017, legendary folk group Lindisfarne will perform their full evening show of classic hits and album tracks.
The fantastic setting of Lavenham Church will have a Theatre style layout with unreserved seating as well as a Bar.
Lindisfarne emerged from Tyneside in the 1970s and quickly carved out a unique place for themselves as 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 to deliver the catchy, memorable songs provided by the band’s resident writers Alan Hull and Rod Clements. Their first hit, the Clements-penned Meet Me On The Corner, paved the way for their classic Fog On The Tyne to become the UK’s top-selling album of 1972.
Lindisfarne’s unforgettable songs, powerful live performances and unpretentious style led to worldwide success and an enviable reputation as festival favourites, and the annual Christmas concerts they presented in their native Newcastle became the stuff of legend.
The original band finally called it a day in 2003, but now they are back with a classic six-piece line up of long-time members fronted by original founder-member Rod Clements (vocals, mandolin, fiddle, slide guitar) and Alan Hull’s son-in-law Dave Hull-Denholm (vocals, guitars). With 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, their power to galvanise festival and concert audiences remains undimmed and is guaranteed to get the crowd on its feet and singing along.
A show not to be missed!
Lindisfarne will be at Lavenham Chruch on Friday 20th October, 7.30pm.
