The Lindisfarne Story: Billy Mitchell + Ray Laidlaw
Lindisfarne was Tyneside's best-loved band for over thirty years and a celebration of their music and heritage devised by ex-members Ray Laidlaw and Billy Mitchell is coming to Newcastle City Hall. Billy and Ray accompanied by the Billy Mitchell Band perform the classic songs and in the first half of the show tell the tale of Lindisfarne's rise to fame and the people they met and worked with during countless concert tours, recording sessions, festivals, radio and TV appearances.
It's hard to believe that it's 40 years since Lindisfarne's 'Fog On The Tyne' album was No 1 in the UK album charts and the biggest selling UK album of 1972. It's also nearly ten years since the final line-up of the band closed a remarkable career that included a record-breaking 120 appearances at Newcastle City Hall.
'Meet Me On The Corner', 'Lady Eleanor', 'Clear White Light', 'Road To Kingdom Come', 'January Song' and 'Run For Home' are just a few of the classic songs that Lindisfarne produced and that audiences never tire of.

Billy began playing guitar in the '60s when they were all made of wood and mostly the same colour. After a misspent youth in various bands including Jack the Lad, he formed Maxie & Mitch with Pete McIntyre and spent the last 20 years playing music in a funny way to anyone after a laugh. In 1996 Billy joined Newcastle's favourite sons; the critically acclaimed Lindisfarne. He only plays a handful of solo concerts every year, so catch him while you can.
