In 1968 Ian Anderson and his fellow band members were playing blues/rock around the pubs and clubs of southern England. After finally settling on the band name ‘Jethro Tull’ (after an 18th Century British Agriculturalist), they went on to develop their own unique progressive-folk-rock sound. Anderson; their unmistakable front man, continues to lead the current line up as composer, musician and vocalist. From their early successes with hit singles like ’Living in the Past’ and ‘Bungle in the Jungle’, the band went on to win a Grammy for their album ‘Crest of a Knave’ in 1989. Anderson plays the flute like no-one else, but don’t forget he also writes prolifically, and plays acoustic guitar and other stringed instruments. Oh yes, and he also sings. He has released more than 30 albums as a solo artist and with Jethro Tull, selling in excess of 60 million copies worldwide. He has been awarded a Doctorate in Literature from two universities, the Ivor award for International Achievement in Music and, in the 2008 British New Year’s Honors list, an MBE for services to music. With him in the current band line up are; Florian Ophale on electric guitar, Scott Hammond on drums, John O’Hara on keyboards and David Goodier paying base. Ryan O’Donnell adds vocal and theatrical contributions. The album ‘Homo Erraticus’ (Latin for ‘Wandering Man) was released in 2014 and Stephen Thomas Erlewine of ‘Allmusic’ called it "as close to 1970s progressive rock as is possible in 2014". Anderson’s latest project is ‘Jethro Tull, The String Quartets’. This album provides a different listening experience for lovers of his music - classic Jethro Tull songs arranged by John O’Hara for the Carducci String Quartet, with Anderson’s flute, guitar and vocals. Jethro Tull’s style remains timeless and entirely their own. But it is most definitely not ‘Living in the Past’.
