Rod Clements and Ian Thomson

A founder member of folk-rock legends LINDISFARNE, Rod Clements wrote their instantly-recognisable breakthrough hit ‘Meet Me On The Corner’ for which he received an Ivor Novello award.

Rod has also worked with other prominent names, including Ralph McTell (playing on Streets Of London), Bert Jansch, Michael Chapman, Rachel Harrington, Thea Gilmore and many others.

Rod’s songs have been covered by artists as diverse as Melanie and Joe Brown. Bittersweet ballad ‘Can’t Do Right For Doing Wrong’ (co-written with Nigel Stonier) was a chart entry for Erin Rocha in 2003.

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’.

Rod currently performs both solo and with Ian Thomson on double bass.
