Martin Turner ex Wishbone Ash
WISHBONE GOLD - Spring Tour 2019

Burger & Sides Night

Thursday 2nd May

Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the formation of the original Wishbone Ash

Featuring the full performance of Wishbone Ash’s classic 1976 album New England.

Fresh from 2017/18 shows which have featured Wishbone Ash’s seminal albums Argus, There’s The Rub and Wishbone Ash In Their Entirety, Martin Turner and his band return to the concert stages in Spring 2019 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the formation of the original Wishbone Ash and perform another classic album – 1976’s New England.

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.

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, song writing 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 Wilson and Misha Nikolic, and drummer Tim Brown.

If you’re a wee bit peckish you can enjoy a quality 6oz burger (90% beef OR Vegi), bun, onion rings, slaw and fries ALL FOR ONLY AN EXTRA £7!

The Mighty Poons

The Mighty Poons

Thursday 9th May

Once described as "The Baron Knights on acid", JERUSALEM HARPOON (better known as THE MIGHTY POONS) play a classic assortment of tunes from The “Whistle Test” years.

A 5 piece rock band featuring some of the finest musicians in the whole world....well, maybe not the world, but certainly Scotland. Jerusalem Harpoon, or The Mighty Poons, as they have become to be known, was formed in 2005 by Rupert Black, who was the keyboard player with such well known bands as The Pretenders, Talk Talk, The Alarm, and David Bell, the singer from Big Vern ‘n’ the Shootahs.

The idea was to create a band that would allow them to indulge their fantasy of playing their favourite rock songs from the Old Grey Whistle Test years. For those not familiar with TOGWT, it was a 70’s version of Later with Jools Holland, featuring live performances from bands like Led Zeppelin, Focus, The Who, Little Feat, Fanny etc. So, plundering the musical talent around Glasgow, Rupert and David found 3 other likeminded musicians, forming a package that perfectly delivers a powerful mix of rock music from the 70’s and 80’s, covering everything from Jethro Tull, Clapton, Genesis via Ricky Lee Jones and Manfred Mann’s Earthband, too, IT BITES!

If you like your rock to be of the classic variety, the musicianship to be of the top quality, and a band that tends not to take itself too seriously, then a night of top tunes from The Old Grey Whistle Test years with Jerusalem Harpoon is an absolute and total MUST!
