A two-hour special, replaying Martin’s recent chat about his favourite tracks and new album, plus Tull and solo highlights and his band session for GRTR! from last year

Long-serving Jethro Tull guitarist Martin Barre sets out on an extensive European tour from 29 August.

For 40 plus years he was an integral part of the Jethro Tull sound although in more recent times he has toured in his own right as ‘Martin Barre’s New Day’ and his solo albums date from 1994.

He released ‘Away With Words’ in 2013 which featured rearranged Tull tracks and new pieces and 29 September sees the release of ‘Order Of Play’ which again covers Tull and some blues rock standards.

Martin has always been at the forefront of progressive rock guitar and his work on ‘Aqualung’ was voted one of “The 20 Greatest Guitar Solos of All Time” by Guitarist magazine in 2011.

He recently chatted to Get Ready to ROCK!’s managing editor David Randall about his latest album and selecting his own favourite tracks from other artists.  (See broadcast times, above).

The Martin Barre Band – Martin, Dan Crisp (vocals), Richard Beesley (sax), Alan Thomson (bass) and George Lindsay (drums) – play UK dates starting out Friday 29 August and in Europe from 8 October.
