play Jethro Tull

The band might even fool me on a good night’ - Ian Anderson


Jethro Tull is one of Britain’s most celebrated eclectic rock bands. Still led by Ian Anderson on flute/vocals they mixed art rock, classical, Prog Rock, folk, eastern and jazz influences into a blues format that later led to some incredible self penned hits and timeless tracks such as such as ‘Living in the Past’, ‘The Witches Promise’, ‘Thick as a Brick’, ‘Aqualung’, ‘Life is a Long Song’, ‘Bouree’ and ‘Locomotive Breath’.

THE DAYGLO PIRATES play early Jethro Tull from the classic ‘This Was’ & ‘Stand Up’ albums onwards via ‘Aqualung’ & ‘Thick As A Brick’ to ‘Song From The Wood’.
The band is led by the incredible Paul ‘Songs from the’ Forrest on vocals, flute, acoustic guitar, mandolin, special relativity, turning water into wine etc...

The Dayglo Pirates also achieved their own seal of authenticity when founder member Ian Anderson played with them and congratulated them on their musicianship. They have toured Europe and have appeared and been rebooked at the Jethro Tull Convention. Simply amazing!
