The legendary Wishbone Ash, the pioneers of twin-guitar rock.

Formed in 1969, Wishbone Ash has to its credit 24 original studio recordings, 10 live albums and four live DVDs along with a DVD rockumentary ‘This is Wishbone Ash’. They have made records in both the UK and the US, working with producers of the calibre of Tom Dowd (Cream, Clapton & Lynyrd Skynyrd) and Bill Szymczyk (Eagles, Joe Walsh & The Who). The band is led by founding member Andy Powell on guitar and vocals, trading licks with Finland’s guitar wizard Muddy Manninen, bass player Bob Skeat a 17-year veteran of the band and in-demand studio musician on bass, and drummer Joe Crabtree.

Lynyrd Skynyrd cites Wishbone Ash as a primary influence on their style along with Thin Lizzy, Iron Maiden and, more recently, heavyweights like Opeth.

All have been transformed by the original, legendary twin-guitar approach of Wishbone Ash – there is no other rock band in history that has done more with the twin guitar concept than The Ash.

Special guest to be announced.

Over 14s only.
