Rock legend Ian Anderson from Jethro Tull will be performing The Christmas Jethro Tull in Salisbury Cathedral on Friday 16 December at 7.30pm. He will be joined by special guest Greg Lake of King Crimson fame and founder member of Emerson Lake and Palmer. And it's just been confirmed that Phil Harding of Channel 4's Time Team will take part by doing a reading.
Ian says of the show, "Whether your Christmas is a secular affair of gift-giving and family togetherness or a more worshipful recognition of one of the two big days in the Christian calendar, join us for some uplifting Christmas spirit, music, readings and maybe even a prayer or two."
As the self-professed “unplugged guy with a bunch of noisy friends” Ian Anderson commands much respect as an acoustic musician amongst his peers. The only original member of Jethro Tull, Ian remains synonymous with the brand identity. Drawing on Folk, Classical, Rock and Jazz music styles, Ian continues to blend elements of many world music cultures to delight his fans.
Thanks to Ian’s generosity and generous sponsorship, all profits from the concert will benefit the funds for the conservation of the Cathedral.
The Dean of Salisbury, the Very Reverend June Osborne, said “We’re very grateful to Ian for thinking of us and bringing his Christmas concert here and, in the real spirit of Christmas, giving his time and talents to support our beautiful medieval Cathedral. We are known for our choral and classical music events but Ian’s performance will show off what a great venue Salisbury Cathedral is for other styles of music.”
