ONE of the UK’s most enduring classic rock bands will play in Bootleggers this Autumn.

Wishbone Ash will be touring the music from their latest album, ‘Blue Horizon’, stopping in Kendal on October 26.

The band includes founding member Andy Powell, who handles lead vocals and trades licks with Finnish guitarist Muddy Manninen.

The rhythm section is manned by bassist Bob Skeat, a 17-year veteran of the band and in- demand studio musician and Joe Crabtree, one of the best of Britain’s new breed of drummers whose performance credits include Pendragon and David Cross of King Crimson.

With 24 studio releases and 10 live recordings to date, Wishbone Ash continue to prove they are not a band to rest on their laurels.

Recording highlights are, of course, the multi-million selling 1972 album ‘Argus’, considered to be one of the all-time classic rock albums, together with ‘Pilgramage’ (1971) and ‘New England’ (1976). More recently, ‘The Power of Eternity’ (2007) and ‘Elegant Stealth’ (2011) garnered praise.
