Martin Turner

Martin Turner and his band return to the concert stages in autumn 2020 to perform another classic Wishbone Ash album in its entirety – 1973’s Wishbone Four – 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 autumn 2020 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.
