"Two from Lindisfarne, one from Fairport and a mysterious other........"

Ray Jackson performed for us with the Acoustic Gathering back in GFC's very early days in 2011. As well as being a leading light in Lindisfarne, Ray is perhaps best known for his Mandolin solo at the end of Rod Stewart's Maggie May.  His rich, warm vocals and blues harmonica will make you weep and his mandolin playing take you on a trip to way back when...

Ric Sanders (Fairport Convention) brought his trio to us in 2016.  His sizzling electric violin improvisations will delight and excite.

Tom Leary (Feast of Fiddles/Joe Brown's Band) plays electric violin, mandolin and lap steel that'll put wolf in your soul and mud in your blood.

Vo Fletcher's (Lindisfarne)  guitar and vocals glue the band together and impel them, rhythmically and emotionally onwards and upwards.

Among interpretations of traditional material taken from their combined experience, SilverBlues will play Lindisfarne favourites old and new, give some early Fairport numbers a new lease of life with newer Fairport tunes composed by Ric.

These guys aren’t bound by any convention (Fairport or otherwise).
Improvisation, inspiration and excitement abound at every show.
