Occasionally I take time out from the commotion of live rock shows and present an evening of acoustic music and songs.

Rather than being an "unplugged" version of the electric gig, we have put together instrumental pieces, songs from my solo album and very special interpretations of music that is unique to the acoustic show.

The audience will become part of our night, in an intimate and friendly atmosphere, usually mixed with anecdotes, humour and the beautiful sound of three acoustic guitars weaving complex harmonies.

This is, in every way, a very different gig, yet with the same dynamics, excitement as always with a huge serving of delicious music.

Take a seat, sit back and enjoy!!!!



Martin Barre the guitarist of Jethro Tull for over 43 years, his sound and playing was a major factor in their success. Album sales have exceeded 60 million units and they continue to be played worldwide, representing an important part of classic rock history.

Martin’s guitar playing has earned him a high level of respect and recognition; he was voted 25th best solo ever in the USA and 20th best solo ever in the UK for his playing on ‘Aqualung’. His playing on the album ‘Crest of a Knave’ earned him a Grammy award in 1989.

As well as numerous Jethro Tull albums, Martin has worked with many other artists including Paul McCartney, Phil Collins, Gary Moore, Joe Bonamassa and Chris Thompson and has shared a stage with such legends as Hendrix, Fleetwood Mac, Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin.

Martin has put together a band to play the “classic” music from the Tull catalogue. His band is a total commitment to give the Tull fans and a broader audience the chance to hear tracks not performed for many years. The band includes top musicians from a similar background.
