Aqualung my friend,
Don’t you start away uneasy.
You poor old sod, you see, it’s only me…
Martin Barre was Jethro Tull’s guitarist for over forty three years, his sound and playing a major factor in their success and an important part of classic rock history.
Sixty million units sold – and still on heavy rotation worldwide – Martin’s guitar skills have earned him the highest level of respect and recognition; his Aqualung solo voted 25th best solo ever in the USA and 20th best solo ever in the UK. His playing on album ‘Crest of a Knave’ earned him a Grammy award in 1989.
Martin has put together a band of top rock musicians steeped in that era to play “classic” music from the Tull catalogue. A total commitment to the legacy, and they’re returning to York.
As well as numerous Jethro Tull albums, Martin has worked with including McCartney, Gary Moore, Joe Bonamassa, Phil Collins and Chris Thompson; and shared a stage with such legends as Hendrix, Fleetwood Mac, Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin.
Genuine legend in the house, advance purchase strongly recommended!
Sitting on the park bench,
Eyeing little girls with bad intent.
Snot running down his nose,
Greasy fingers smearing shabby clothes…
