Rod Clements & Ian Thomson http://www.rodclements.com/
As a founder member of north-east folk-rock legends LINDISFARNE, Rod Clements is notable for having contributed a bluesy element to the original Lindisfarne sound. His subsequent solo work features Rod playing in a distinctly bluesy style, epitomised by his versions of classic Lindisfarne numbers such as "Train in G Major ". His latest album, "Rendezvous Cafe" features Rod playing slide and acoustic guitar , accompanied by Ian Thomson on double bass, and has a fabulous laid back, late night bluesy feel to it .
Rod is also considered bluesy enough for ‘Blues In Britain’ to have reviewed his most recent CD ‘Rendezvous Café’ with critic Dave Scott describing it as being “so much more than an album; it is a lifetime achievement”. To read the review in full click here .
As Ray Laidlaw (the original drummer in the band) told the Telegraph & Argus "Playing the songs acoustically is how we first heard them as Alan (Hull) or Rod (Clements) played them to the rest of us”. Well, now you can hear from the man himself when Rod Clements visits KBC with fellow LINDISFARNE member, Ian Thomson.
One of British folk-rock’s true originals, Rod is a man who has seen it all and lived to tell the tale (his column ‘Nicely Out Of Tune’ appears monthly in R2 magazine). The writer of ‘Meet Me On The Corner’ and sidekick of Bert Jansch, Ralph McTell and Michael Chapman will draw from a clutch of critically acclaimed solo albums and back catalogue of classics to create an evening of spine-tingling guitar, heartfelt vocals and dry humour.
