Wishbone Ash was formed by Martin Turner and Steve Upton who, by 1969, had recruited two lead guitarists Ted Turner and Andy Powell.  The band went on to produce some classic albums and influencing many of their contemporaries.

As lead vocalist and key creative force, founding original member Martin Turner was central to the critical and commercial success of Wishbone Ash’s classic albums, with his passionate vocal delivery, songwriting ability, keen melodic sense and production values being a key ingredient in the definitive Wishbone Ash sound.

Martin Turner continues to perform the band’s best loved works with his current line-up, which features guitarists Danny Willson and Misha Nikolic, and drummer Tim Brown.

The Autumn 2018 tour will feature classic tracks from the extensive Wishbone Ash repertoire, as well as new music that remains true to the original Wishbone Ash style plus, a full performance of the debut album.  Released in December 1970 ‘Wishbone Ash’ contained an eclectic mix of progressive rock, hard-rock, blues, jazz and folk influences.
