String Theory have another fantastic act lined up for the Heart of Hawick, with Rod Clements appearing at Tower Mill on Monday night.

Clements is best known for being a founder-member of folk/rock band Lindisfarne, who were well known for their unique style and produced hits like ‘Fog On The Tyne’, ‘Meet Me On The Corner’ and ‘We Can Swing Together’.

This is one not to be missed for all Lindisfarne fans, with Clements due to play some of the old classics as well as his newer material.

The evening begins at 7.30pm, admission is free in the Tower Mill Cafe, so arrive in plenty of time to be guaranteed a seat.

The following week (November 23), ‘The Lindisfarne Story’ will be staged in the auditorium. This is the history of the band told by founder-member Ray Laidlaw and Billy Mitchell (who replaced Alan Hull after his death) with stories, acoustic versions of the hits plus archive video and personal photographs.

Hear and see the inside story of the group’s rise to fame, from Whitley Bay to San Francisco Bay, from Rothbury to Glastonbury, as their sparkling songwriting cut through the prevailing pop and glam sounds of the 70s.
