The evening features three of Northumberland’s finest singer-songwriters: Andrew Lobb, a gifted singer-songwriter whose songs celebrate Northumberland and its people; Tom O’Donnell, an American from Rothbury whose poignant Americana ballads and artistry have charmed audiences throughout the North; and Rothbury’s very own Rod Clements of Lindisfarne. All proceeds go to support the Northumberland National Park Mountain Rescue Team; all artists are contributing their performances

Andrew Lobb

Andrew Lobb is an accomplished contemporary folk singer, songwriter and guitarist, who draws inspiration from the beauty of the hills and valleys of Northumberland, Holy Island and the stories of folk from years past.

Andrew’s music is a celebration of this unique part of the United Kingdom, its history and its culture – both past and present. His songs are a reflection of Northern Heritage – a contemporary take on the past, and some of the people who lived and worked through those hard times.

Tom O’Donnell

Tom O’Donnell has brought his unique blend of Americana, Roots, Folk and Country music to audiences in America, England and Europe for years. Featuring stunning vocals and complex acoustic guitar accompaniment, Tom’s songs range from thoughtful to hilarious, brooding to joyful, but always beautiful and reflective, whether they celebrate the hardness and resilience of the American heartland, the joy of discovery and insight, or memories and ruminations on life.

A survivor of the Great Folk Revival (or Scare) of the ‘60s, Tom was inspired by the Kingston Trio and later by the singer/songwriters of the era, including Bob Dylan, Tom Paxton, Gordon Lightfoot, Joni Mitchell and especially John Stewart. Although broadly oriented to Americana, Folk and Roots music, Tom’s tastes are eclectic. Don’t be surprised if you hear some blues, or ‘50s rock & roll, or even British pop. Not to mention more than a bit of humor.

Tom has recorded eight albums, including his most recent, “Rothbury in the Fall.” He currently divides his time between Rothbury and Morgantown, West Virginia.

Rod Clements

Rod Clements needs no introduction to folks in Northumberland, or indeed anywhere. A brilliant singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, he formed the folk-rock band Lindisfarne with Alan Hull in 1970, and wrote “Meet Me on the Corner,” inspired by his home village of Rothbury. Over the years Rod has performed with such stars has Ralph McTell and Bert Jansch. Rod rejoined Lindisfarne in 2015 and is currently touring and performing with the band.
