Martin Barre Band

[ROCK] Casual listeners to FM hard rock know Martin Barre’s guitarwork on such Jethro Tull staples as “Aqualung” and “Locomotive Breath.” For my money, you need scratch only a hair deeper to find the the track that best illustrates the character of his playing: “Skating Away on the Thin Ice of a New Day,” from 1974’s War Child. Lilting acoustic that bespeaks classical and folk influence give way to crunching electric power chords—Tull in a teacup. But that’s just me. Judge for yourself when Barre brings his solo band to the Sportsmen’s Tavern on Thursday, April 6.
