Legendary folk-rock pioneers Lindisfarne are heading to Glasgow's iconic Mackintosh Queen's Cross Church.
The Tyneside group are to play the Maryhill venue as part of the band’s 2023 tour.
Revisiting their memorable 1977 live LP 'Magic in the Air’, the group - which had multiple hits in the 1970s - play the Mackintosh church on Saturday October 21.
Lindisfarne formed in 1970 and have gone through many changes and departures, none other than founding genius Alan Hull who died in 1995.
Brit Award winner and fellow Geordie Sam Fender presented a moving BBC documentary last year paying tribute to the inspirational late songwriter.
The band had a string of hits with songs such as Meet Me On The Corner, Fog On The Tyne, Lady Eleanor and Run For Home.
The present-day line-up is fronted by founder-member Rod Clements and includes Hull’s son-in-law Dave Hull-Denholm (vocals, guitars).
Lindisfarne’s power to galvanize festival and concert audiences remains undimmed and is guaranteed to get the crowd on their feet and singing along.
A press release announcing the Glasgow gig reads: “Legendary 70’s Tyneside folk-rock pioneers Lindisfarne present a classic five-piece line-up of long-time members fronted by founder-member Rod Clements on vocals, mandolin, fiddle and slide guitar.
“For their 2023 tour, Lindisfarne recall a memorable period of live shows focussed on the 1977 release of live LP ‘Magic in The Air’.
“With a repertoire of unforgettable 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’s power to galvanize festival and concert audiences remains undimmed and is guaranteed to get the crowd on their feet and singing along."
