Wishbone Ash


disabled access

Wishbone Ash embarked on the nascent Progressive Rock scene in 1969, taking full advantage of a fertile musical environment where they produced a distinctive brand of melodic rock. Inspired equally by British folk traditions and American jazz and R&B, the group played to public and critical acclaim.

The band includes founding member Andy Powell, who handles lead vocals and trades licks with Finland's guitar wizard Muddy Manninen. Bassist Bob Skeat, an 18-year veteran of the band, keeps the bottom rocking with Joe Crabtree, one of the best of Britain's new breed of drummers whose performance credits include Pendragon and David Cross of King Crimson. Wishbone Ash, the quintessential road band, is an acknowledged influence on many other bands including Thin Lizzy and Iron Maiden. Power and melody have made the Ash a hard act to follow, while they are currently being discovered by new generations of loyal rock fans.
