The Lindisfarne Story: Chapter 4 - A Twist in the Tale. On tour, March-April 2019.

Lindisfarne were formed in Newcastle in 1969 and were hailed by the music business as 'a breath of fresh air' and 'the new Beatles'. They toured the world, had many hit singles and albums and released the UK's biggest selling album in 1971, Fog on the Tyne. Their music is still played regularly on the radio, TV and at gigs throughout the UK. The Lindisfarne Story is a celebration of the life, times and music of the North East of England's most beloved band, Lindisfarne. Founder member and drummer Ray Laidlaw and front man Billy Mitchell tell the remarkable story with a combination of rare video, unseen photographs, acoustic versions of their favourite Lindisfarne songs and a smattering of scurrilous gossip. Ray and Billy created this show in 2012 as a fresh and original way to perform Lindisfarne music and share the group's history with Lindisfarne fans. After two successful Lindisfarne Story UK tours in 2015 and 2016, Ray and Billy are back for another chapter and there's so much more to talk about since the last tour.

There's ''Clear White Light – a play featuring the music of Lindisfarne's Alan Hull. “A gem” (The Guardian): 'We Can Swing Together' – a new biography of the band: there's even a new version of Lindisfarne fronted by original member Rod Clements... If you are Lindisfarne's biggest fan or simply love the music of the 1960's and 70's, then this show is for you. “A fantastic night with The Lindisfarne Story. There are so many words to describe the show and you will feel many emotions with it. It is a real insight into the history of the group and the talented individuals that have forged many fantastic songs over five decades. It really is very special, catch it before it's gone.”
