Inspired equally by British folk traditions, American jazz and R&B, Wishbone Ash played to public and critical acclaim. Celebrating 50 continuous years, Wishbone Ash, the quintessential road band, has gained worldwide recognition.
Pioneering the use of twin lead guitars, Wishbone Ash jumped on board the burgeoning Progressive Rock scene in 1969. Taking full advantage of the fertile musical environment, they produced a distinctive brand of melodic rock, readily apparent on such hits as "Helpless," "Runaway," "Lorelei," "Persephone," "You Rescue Me," "Outward Bound," "Mother Of Pearl," "Rest In Peace" and "Bad Weather Blues."
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.
