Festival Artwork

Solid Entertainments is delighted to announce that Lincoln Folk, Roots & World Music Festival, will be taking place at Lincoln Drill Hall on Sunday 31st July 2016

As our first festival of this kind in Lincoln, we wanted to showcase the quality of live music in the UK and present a line-up with at least one legendary name…………plus a surprise or two.  We think we have achieved this and with Lindisfarne headlining, a mix of household names and emerging artists; this will most definitely be a festival to remember and one not to miss!

Lindisfarne, the unforgettable 70s folk-rock pioneers return to form with a classic six-piece line up of long-time members, fronted by original founder-member Rod Clements on vocals, mandolin, fiddle, guitars; Dave Hull-Denholm, vocal, guitars; Steve Daggett, vocal, keyboards, guitars; Charlie Harcourt, guitar, vocal; Ian Thomson, bass, vocal and Paul Thompson (ex-Roxy Music) drums.

With a repertoire of incredible songs like “Meet Me On The Corner”, “Fog On The Tyne”, “Lady Eleanor” and “Run For Home” and a reputation for live performance second to none, Lindisfarne’s power to galvanise festival and concert audiences remains undimmed and is guaranteed to get the crowd on its feet and singing along

Words alone cannot convey the magical sounds they created and the only way to truly experience this is by seeing them live.  But for a taste of music history and what this band is all about, please have a look and listen to a couple of classics performed by the current line-up: “Meet Me On The Corner” at https://youtu.be/Sd18NS8-FZs?t=12s and Lady Eleanor” at https://youtu.be/ELfiSr0EbwU

The full line-up comprises of:

  • Lindisfarne – during the early ’70s, they were one of the hottest folk-based rockbands in England and with their continuing story, the Lindisfarne family is still wowing audiences wherever they play!
  • Julie Felix – there are those who just have to play and sing; to whom there can be no question of quitting; to whom their work is not a job but a calling…….. Julie Felix is one such musician!
  • Gilmore & Roberts –  combine award-winning songwriting with astounding musicianship and their trademark harmonies to create a powerful wall of sound that just has to be heard!
  • Polly And The Billets Doux – their energy-filled live performances and genre-defying quartet boast a genius blend of Folk, Pop, Rock N’ Roll, Soul, Country, Blues and even Gospel!
  • Said The Maiden – three friends who discovered a mutual love of folk music and sing traditional songs from around the UK and America, often in three part acapella harmony!
  • The Life And Times Of The Brothers Hogg – an original brand of folky, bluegrass-tinged Americana music, soaring four part harmonies, foot stomping rhythms and immersive storytelling!
