After their set was cut unfortunately short at the first A New Day Festival we are delighted to welcome back the Martin Barre Band for a longer set this time!
Martin was the guitarist with Jethro Tull for 43 years, his sound and playing having been a major factor in their success. Album sales have exceeded 60 million units and they continue to be played worldwide, representing an important part of classic rock history. Martin's guitar playing has earned him a high level of respect and recognition; he was voted 25th best solo ever in the USA and 20th best solo ever in the UK for his playing on 'Aqualung'. His playing on the album Crest of a Knave earned him a Grammy award in 1988. As well as numerous Jethro Tull albums, Martin has worked with many other artists including Paul McCartney, Phil Collins, Gary Moore, Jo Bonamassa and Chris Thompson and has shared a stage with such legends as Hendrix, Fleetwood Mac, Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin.
Since the demise of Jethro Tull Martin has toured the world with his fantastic band, releasing several critically acclaimed albums along the way.
The set includes a selection of Jethro Tull's rockier songs, a few blues classics and a good helping of his original material. Prepare to be amazed by this incredible guitarist
