A club spokesman said: “More recently, Rod has emerged as a compelling solo performer and respected slide guitarist with the critically praised albums Stamping Ground, Odd Man Out and, now, Rendezvous Café.

“Subtitled Revisiting songs from the Lindisfarne years 1968-2002, Rendezvous Café brings together for the first time 26 beautifully crafted songs written for Lindisfarne and others, presented in an acoustic format – featuring hits, album highlights and stage favourites like Train in G Major, Can’t Do Right For Doing Wrong and many 
more.”
