Martin Turner (ex Wishbone Ash): Worcester, 10 April | Event in Worcester | AllEvents.in Martin Turner (ex Wishbone Ash): Worcester
Martin Turner and his band return to the concert stages in Spring 2021 to perform another classic Wishbone Ash album in its entirety – 1973’s Wishbone Four.

Wishbone Ash was formed by West Country musicians Martin Turner and Steve Upton, who arrived in London in 1969 to embark on their musical journey. Intent on creating a musical sound that was rich in texture and melody, Martin Turner envisaged the band’s innovative harmony-guitar hallmark and guitarists Ted Turner and Andy Powell were recruited via a now legendary Melody Maker advert. The partnership of the original line-up of Wishbone Ash forged a unique musical identity that would produce some of rock music's best loved works and influencing numerous successful bands, resulting in millions of album sales and concert attendances. Wishbone Ash would become one of the most enduring British rock acts - its name synonymous with high quality guitar-driven melodic rock music.

Five decades later, the music of the classic line-ups of Wishbone Ash continues to delight audiences worldwide through both live performances and a rich legacy of recorded work that continues to be enjoyed by fans old and new. Classic album releases such as Wishbone Ash, Argus, Pilgrimage, Wishbone Four, There’s the Rub, New England and Live Dates defined the Wishbone Ash sound and have touched the hearts of several generations of music fans. As lead vocalist and key creative
force, founding original member Martin Turner was central to the critical and commercial success of Wishbone Ash’s most revered albums, with his passionate vocal delivery, songwriting ability, keen melodic sense and production values being major ingredients 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.

In recent years Martin Turner has delighted audiences worldwide with his performances of material from the classic periods of Wishbone Ash’s history. Martin’s 2020 touring continues his exploration of the Wishbone Ash catalogue and follows the release of a deluxe 30-disc Wishbone Ash career retrospective CD boxed-set entitled The Vintage Years 1970-1991 as well as Martin Turner’s 2CD/DVD package The Beauty of Chaos – Live at the Citadel.

The Autumn 2020 tour will see Martin and his band performing 1973’s iconic Wishbone Four album – as well as other favourites from the classic era of Wishbone Ash, including Argus highlights.

Released in May 1973 and featuring the celebrated original Wishbone Ash line-up of Martin Turner, Steve Upton, Ted Turner and Andy Powell, Wishbone Four followed in the wake of the classic 1972 album Argus. Rather than attempting to repeat the highly successful formula of Argus, the band elected to explore fresh territory with Wishbone Four which contained shorter songs and displayed a strong folk influence on several tracks and a harder rock sound on others. The band’s first self-produced album, Wishbone Four included stage favourites “Doctor”, “Rock n Roll Widow” and “No Easy Road” alongside deep cuts such as “Everybody Needs a Friend” and “Sorrel”. Wishbone Four reached number 12 on the UK album chart.

The Spring 2021 tour will mark the very first time Wishbone Four has been performed in its entirety on stage and this tour is an event that no Wishbone Ash aficionado will want to miss.
