Classic WISHBONE ASH material and more by co-founder MARTIN TURNER EX-WISHBONE ASH & BAND, plus a full performance of classic album ‘There’s The Rub!
Formed by Martin Turner and Steve Upton who envisaged the band’s innovative twin-guitar hallmark sound, recruiting guitarists Ted Turner and Andy Powell along the way.
That original partnership forged a unique musical identity that would produce some of rock music’s best loved works and influence numerous successful bands and result in millions of album sales and concert attendances. Wishbone Ash would become one of the most enduring and best loved British rock acts and its name synonymous with high quality guitar-driven melodic rock.
As lead vocalist and key creative force, founding original member Martin Turner was central to the critical and commercial success of Wishbone Ash’s most revered albums, with his passionate vocal delivery, songwriting ability, keen melodic sense and production values being a key ingredient in the definitive Wishbone Ash sound.
Martin Turner continues to perform the band’s best loved works with his current line-up and says, “I have had a wonderful time over the past few years re-discovering the wider Wishbone Ash catalogue and taking this to the people. When I go to see an artist live, I want to hear the songs as I remember them from the records and I believe that is true of the Wishbone Ash audience too”.
Over four decades later, the enduring music of the classic marks of Wishbone Ash continues to delight audiences worldwide through both live performances and a rich legacy of recorded work that continues to be enjoyed by fans old and new.
Classic album releases such as Argus, Pilgrimage, There’s the Rub, New England and Live Dates defined the Wishbone Ash sound and have touched the hearts of several generations of music fans.
The tour will feature classic album tracks and stage favourites from the extensive Wishbone Ash repertoire, as well as new music that remains true to the original Wishbone Ash blueprint.
