Martin Turner, ex Wishbone Ash, to Perform 'Argus' in its Entirety

The founding member of Wishbone Ash and his band return for a 33 date UK tour


Ex Wishbone Ash bassist and vocalist, Martin Turner, has announced an extensive UK tour to commemorate the 45th anniversary of their critically acclaimed album Argus.  The Sounds Magazine's 1972 album of the year brought an innovative sound to the rock scene, influencing bands such as Thin Lizzy and Iron Maiden with its twin lead guitar harmonies.

This will be welcome news for classic rock fans as Argus is well and truly imprinted into musical history with it's collection of medieval/folk inspired tunes.  Speaking about the tour, Martin Turner says: "I’m constantly being made aware how this album still resonates with people and holds a special place in their hearts, some 45 years after its release. This I believe is due to the strong melodic content of the music and the universal themes – everyone can relate to the lyrical references to time, space, war, etc".

The band will also be playing other standout Wishbone Ash songs as well as supporting their most recent album: Written In The Stars.
