Stiff Little Fingers point to the Engine Shed



Punk rock band Stiff Little Fingers will be performing at the University of Lincoln’s Engine Shed.


The Northern Irish band, which formed more than 30 years ago, will play at the live music venue on Brayford Wharf East on Sunday 22 March 2009.


They will be supported by special guests The Band from County Hell – a Lincolnshire-based Celtic rock band.


Stiff Little Fingers formed in 1977, producing four albums before they split in 1982. The group reformed five years later, and despite several line-up changes since, lead singer Jake Burns has been with the band throughout.


Events and Marketing Manager for the Engine Shed, Victoria Simpson, said: “It is great for the venue and city to welcome back again such an accredited and talented group as Stiff Little Fingers. Their previous performances both in the venue and the city have been received with great enthusiasm by the people of Lincoln so this is sure to be a great night.”
