Wishbone Ash


The classic rock bands of the late '60s and early '70s enjoy a unique place in popular musical history.

The Beatles had gone their separate ways, Britain had already gone through the Blues Boom, and Psychedelia had made its impact.  The possibilities were infinite.  Wishbone Ash, one of the new breed of Progressive Rockers, were quick to seize the opportunity and in 1969, they were among those to take full advantage of this environment, producing their unique brand of melodic rock.

Over 40 years later, having pioneered the use of twin lead guitars, the band has gained world-wide recognition, based firmly on a regime of relentless touring.  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.

Those 40 years span nearly 40 albums and 6 DVDs… including the multi-million selling Argus - considered one of the classic rock albums of all. An exceptional recording and touring career has seen Wishbone Ash weather many changes in record labels, personnel and musical trends, but they entered the new millennium with most of their vast catalogue intact on CD, an award-winning website and a date sheet the envy of many other bands.

Having performed on five continents to worldwide acclaim, Wishbone Ash still regularly performs more than 150 shows a year, delivering the goods to an ever-growing number of appreciative fans of all ages, proving they’re one of the hardest-working and in-demand bands.
