We Can Swing Together

    By

    When singer-songwriter Alan Hull joined the group Brethren in 1969, and they were renamed Lindisfarne shortly afterwards, nobody could have foreseen that the name would still be around more than forty years later. It has been a chequered saga for them, from their origins in the beat and folk boom of their teenage years, to their swiftly-won reputation as one of Britain's most popular live attractions and the remarkable success of the chart-topping second album 'Fog on the Tyne'. They divided into two camps following issues in 1973 and disbanded two years later, but reunited following a series of annual Christmas concerts in their native Newcastle and beyond. They survived the sudden death of Hull in 1995 and several changes in line-up until 2003, dispersing and then reforming again some ten years later. This tells the story of the ups and downs of their long and colourful history, and the singles, albums and concerts that made them a unique name in popular music history.
