Martin Turner ex Wishbone Ash - Wishbone Gold

Martin Turner and his band return to the Courtyard Theatre in to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the formation of the original Wishbone Ash. The band will perform another classic album in its entirety – 1971's Pilgrimage.

Wishbone Ash was formed by West Country musicians Martin Turner and Steve Upton, in 1969

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.

Martin Turner continues to perform the band’s best loved works with his current line-up, which features guitarists Danny Willson and Misha Nikolic and drummer Tim Brown.

The Spring 2020 Wishbone Gold tour will see Martin and his band performing 1971’s iconic Pilgrimage album – as well as other favourites from the classic era of Wishbone Ash, including Argus highlights.

WHY? The Wishbone Gold tour will mark the very first time Pilgrimage has been performed in its entirety on stage and this tour is an event that no Wishbone Ash aficionado will want to miss

Rock and Roll Cabaret

It's 1959 and a stormy night forces a group of friends to run for shelter at their local diner.

They only have the wireless and their guitars for entertainment. The friends reminisce on their favourite songs from the 1950s. Featuring the music of Buddy Holly, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Bill Haley and many more, this is definitely a night to remember!

WHY? A journey back in time to celebrate the music of Rock and Roll!
