Jethro Tull Shreds a Gnarly Rock Flute Solo at DPAC
Ian Anderson stretched the boundaries of rock 'n' roll, leading the charge for upcoming progressive musicians everywhere. He's jamming in DPAC this weekend with a flute and some legendary tracks.
Ian Anderson recently won "The Prog God Award" from Prog Magazine, celebrating the innovators of rock who have inspired generations and carved a way for others to be at their creative best. There is no one who has pushed the boundaries more than Ian Anderson, who to this day remains immersed in his love for the music.
Fronting seminal prog outfit Jethro Tull and performing simply under his own name, Ian Anderson has performed in more than 54 countries over 45 years; he is widely considered an icon of the genre and is recognized as the protagonist of the flute in rock music. With over 60 million albums sold in its career, Jethro Tull has been characterized by Anderson's trademark acoustic textures created with ethnic flutes and whistles together with acoustic guitar and the mandolin family of instruments.
