Lindisfarne were the real surprise package for me at this year’s Towersey Festival. (2017) Notbeing of their generation I had been unsure of just how they would go down, but they stormed it. Consummate professionals and great musicians, they surprised me with just how many of their great songs I knew and those that I didn’t felt familiar. Wonderful stage presence and rapport with the Audience; who I should say came in droves to see them. A no-brainer booking for me. One of this year’s festival highlights.” Joe Heap-Director -TOWERSEY FESTIVAL Ltd
