Jethro Tull: crowdfunding campaign for "The String Quartets" album

Ian Anderson has launched a crowfunding campaign on PledgeMusic for his new album The String Quartets, twelve reinventions of Jethro Tull songs interpreted by the Carducci Quartet: Matthew Denton (violin), Michelle Fleming (violin), Eoin Schmidt-Martin (violia) and Emma Denton (cello).

Recorded in the crypt of Worcester Cathedral, UK and in St Kenelm’s Church, Sapperton, Gloucestershire, UK, Ian says that this album is “Perfect for lazy, long sunny afternoons, crisp winter nights, weddings and funerals.” He forgot to add, perfect also after a night of wild, abandoned sex or to celebrate the win of your favourite football team. Essentially, anytime music for sophisticated lovers of Classic Rock too afraid to wear their Tull T-shirt at the village barbecue.

The String Quartets will be released thru BMG in March 2017 (CD, 2LP gatefold vinyl, digital).

  1. In The Past (Living In The Past) // Stand Up // 1969
