PORT CHESTER, N.Y. -- Ian Anderson performed a rock opera that tells the story of Jethro Tull at the Capitol Theater in Port Chester on Nov. 10.
Ian Anderson, known throughout the world of rock music as the flute and voice behind the legendary Jethro Tull, has been a recording and performing musician for 47 years.
He was born in 1947 in Dunfermline, Fife, Scotland. After attending primary school in Edinburgh, his family relocated to Blackpool in the north of England in 1959. Following a traditional Grammar school education, he moved on to Art college to study fine art before deciding on an attempt at a musical career.
Tull formed in 1968 out of the amalgamation of the John Evan Band and McGregor’s Engine, two blues-based local UK groups.
Still enjoying a lengthy if intermittent ongoing career, Jethro Tull has released 30 studio and live albums, selling more than 60 million copies since the band first performed at London’s famous Marquee club.
