A Jethro Tull Christmas With Ian Anderson

Ian AndersonLowNoise Productions is pleased to present A Jethro Tull Christmas With Ian Anderson, our one hour radio holiday special being distributed by PRX.

Multi-instrumental musician, prolific writer, distinctive singer and conspicuous flutist Ian Anderson of the British band Jethro Tull shares colorful Christmas memories, and presents tracks from the "cynical and grumpy" Jethro Tull Christmas Album. Anderson talks about his relationship with the flute and relearning to play the instrument properly after three decades of recording and touring.

Broadly classified at times as Progressive Rock, Jethro Tull's music spans many genres including Jazz, Folk, Classical and Blues, in ways that are as rich and brilliant as they are unique.

This humorous and engaging one-hour special provides a definite counterpoise to more conventional holiday programming fare, and is well-suited to a wide age range, given Jethro Tull's lengthy and illustrious history which began in the 1960's. The band has produced 30 albums and performed more than 2500 concerts in 40 countries.

We've also included original blends of a few of the band's recordings which Tull fans may find interesting.

To listen to the program online, you can sign up for a free PRX membership which by the way will give you access to thousands of radio pieces from stations and independent producers all over the world. You'll also find A Jethro Tull Christmas With Ian Anderson at coolstreams.com.
