Martin Barre has been the guitarist of Jethro Tull for 43 years, his sound and playing have been a major factor in their success. Barre has put together a band equal to the task of performing music from the Tull catalog, as well as new tracks written for the band. Classic albums of the 70s, including Aqualung, Thick as a Brick and A Passion Play; and timeless songs such as “Thick as a Brick”, “Minstrel in the Gallery”, “Teacher” and “Locomotive Breath” come to life in the hands of the original and master guitarist!  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.
