As founding member of the legendary rock band Jethro Tull, Ian Anderson has long been considered to be the foremost and, to many, the only exponent of rock-style flute. While still fronting Tull to this day and with sell-out performances throughout the world, Ian now brings his acoustic talents to the orchestral stage. He will perform a selection of Tull favorites, solo songs and instrumentals together with a sprinkling of Classical repertoire, all carefully arranged for amplified flute, acoustic rock band and orchestra.
Tull fans will recognize songs “Aqualung,” “Locomotive Breath,” “Thick As A Brick,” “My God” and “Bouree and Budapest.” Much of this material is highlighted on two recent CDs, IAN ANDERSON PLAYS THE ORCHESTRAL JETHRO TULL and AQUALUNG LIVE.
Ian and the orchestra will be joined by: John O’Hara (accordion and piano), Florian Opahle (guitar), James Duncan (drums and percussion) and Dave Goodier (bass).
In October, Ian's planning some chamber music dates which includes a lot of venues in the North East, plus Knoxville, TN., Chicago, St. Louis, Milwaukee, Minneapolis.
