Lindisfarne duo bring memories of popular North East band to South Yorkshire

The Lindisfarne Story is a celebration of the life, times and music of the North East's beloved band, Lindisfarne.

Founder member and drummer Ray Laidlaw and frontman Billy Mitchell tell their 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 way to perform Lindisfarne music and share their history with fans.

After successful tours in 2015 and 16, Ray and Billy are back for another chapter. They discuss Clear White Light, a play featuring the music of Lindisfarne's Alan Hull, a new biography of the band called We Can Swing Together and even a new version of Lindisfarrne, fronted by original member Rod Clements.

The show is at Barnsley Civic on March 9 and Cast, Doncaster on April 5.
