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 the European leg of his extensive tour from 8 October.  His new album – ‘Order Of Play’ – is released on 29 September.

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.

On the eve of album release – Sunday 28 September – a two-hour special features that interview plus a selection of classic Tull and Martin Barre solo tracks including his exclusive session last year for Get Ready to ROCK!

For 40 plus years Martin 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 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.

The Martin Barre Band – Martin, Dan Crisp (vocals), Richard Beesley (sax), Alan Thomson (bass) and George Lindsay (drums) – play European dates from 8 October.
