Martin Turner - The Vintage Years Tour - March April 2018
Martin Turner and his band hit the road this month with the first leg of his Vintage Years Tour 2018. On the tour they will perform 1974's iconic Wishbone Ash album - There's the Rub in full.
There’s the Rub marked a departure for Wishbone Ash, being their first album to be recorded in the USA (with noted producer Bill Szymczyk of Eagles fame) as well as the debut of new guitarist Laurie Wisefield, who had replaced original member Ted Turner. Featuring regular stage favourites “FUBB” and “Persephone”, as well as deeper album cuts such as “Silver Shoes” and “Lady Jay” the album received rave reviews from the UK media and charted at UK#16. It remains a firm favourite with the band’s loyal fanbase and connoisseurs of classic rock music and is widely regarded as one of the band’s most enduring works.
