Touring and producing outstanding progressive rock for so many years, Wishbone Ash returns to the Mauch Chunk Opera House with their much-anticipated 50th Anniversary tour. Always best appreciated live, their twin-guitar sound, honed back in the seventies, is one of their defining and enduring traits.
Wishbone Ash are considered to be one of the major innovators of the harmony twin lead guitar format. Their contributions helped Andy Powell and Ted Turner to be voted “Two of the Ten Most Important Guitarists in Rock History” (Traffic magazine 1989), and to appear in the “Top 20 Guitarists Of All Time” (Rolling Stone). Melody Maker (1972) described Powell and Turner as “the most interesting two guitar team since the days when Beck and Page graced The Yardbirds”.
Their current line-up of Andy Powell, Mark Abrahams on second guitar, Bob Skeat on bass, and Joe Crabtree on drums, has had the notable effect of further energizing the Wishbone Ash sound, making it better than ever.
