Lindisfarne story retold in Morecambe
Ray Laidlaw, founder member and original drummer, and Billy Mitchell, front man for the final eight years, have joined together to tell The Lindisfarne Story.
The duo will be appearing at the Platform presenting the history and hits in a celebration of Lindisfarne devised, written and performed by Ray and Billy.
They will play acoustic versions of such songs as Lady Eleanor, Meet Me On The Corner, Fog On The Tyne and Run For Home and relate the stories behind them.
Lindisfarne was Tyneside’s best-loved band for more than 30 years, and The Lindisfarne Story is a celebration of the group’s music and achievements.
Ray and Billy perform acoustic versions of Lindisfarne’s classic songs, and tell the inside story of the group’s rise to fame, from Whitley Bay to San Francisco Bay.
The show is illustrated with personal archive photographs and describes their worldwide tours, their triumphant return home and their unique relationship with Newcastle City Hall, venue for more than 130 Lindisfarne performances.
The show starts at 7.30pm and tickets are £18.50 at www.lancaster.gov.uk/platform-tickets or on 01524 582803.
