Info

Lindisfarne were a British folk/rock group of the 1970s, fronted by singer/songwriter Alan Hull. Their music combined a strong sense of yearning, often for home, with an even stronger sense of fun. Hit singles included "Meet Me On The Corner", "Lady Eleanor", "Run For Home", and the anthemic "We Can Swing Together", though perhaps their best-remembered song is "Fog On The Tyne" from the LP of the same name. The original line-up comprised Alan Hull (20 February 1945 - 17 November 1995) (vocals/guitar/piano); Simon Cowe (born 1 April 1948, in Jesmond Dene, Newcastle-upon-Tyne) (guitar, mandolin, banjo); Ray Jackson (born Lindsay Raymond Jackson, 12 December 1948, in Wallsend, Newcastle-upon-Tyne) (mandolin/harmonica); Rod Clements (born Roderick Parry Clements, 17 November 1947, in North Shields) (bass guitar/violin); and Ray Laidlaw (born Raymond Laidlaw, 28 May 1948, in North Shields) (drums).
