Cold Flame play the music of Jethro Tull

Friday, 29 March 2019 - 8:00pm

 

Throughout the band's history, beginning in 1984, Cold Flame have performed and recorded original blues rock music interspersed with elements of progressive folk rock.

 

In 1997 having acquired a flautist in the band line-up, Cold Flame decided to present audiences with a separate live tribute show dedicated to the music of international progressive rock group Jethro Tull. Initially this was performed as a four-piece but very quickly keyboards were added which helped to expand the music and provide more authenticity to the show which in turn heightened the popularity of the group. 

 

The Jethro Tull tribute show as performed by Cold Flame over the last 22 years, has seen the band headline indoor and outdoor shows, rock festivals and blues clubs both across the UK as well as in mainland Europe. This has included headlining Jethro Tull festival conventions in both Italy and Spain. As a result of these concert opportunities, the band have been featured on European radio stations as well as on UK local and regional radio.

 

 

In recent years, Cold Flame’s Jethro Tull tribute show has gained the five-piece band the reputation as one of the leading Jethro Tull tribute acts both in the UK and Europe and the band has been praised in national music magazines like ‘Classic Rock’ and ‘A New Day’. Cold Flame have always enjoyed links with several official members of Jethro Tull, having performed with performed with ex Tull members Clive Bunker, Mick Abrahams, the late Glenn Cornick, Paul Burgess, Martin Allcock and Gerry Conway as well as Tull guest musician and international violinist Anna Phoebe and Martin Barre’s current bassist Alan Thompson.

 

Cold Flame have also supported two Jethro Tull off-shoot bands -  Blodwyn Pig and Wild Turkey. The band have also worked with Italian Jethro Tull tribute act – OAK. OAK have recently released a progressive rock double album on Aereostella Records worldwide and Pat has played bass guitar on this album as well as writing the lyrics for two of the songs.

 

Some major names from the prog rock world including Curved Air’s Sonja Christina, Dave Jackson [ Van Der Graaf Generator] Richard Sinclair [ Camel/ Caravan] and Martin Allcock also feature on this Tull influenced rock opera studio release. Cold Flame have also performed the music of Jethro Tull alongside other major UK tribute bands including Whitesnake UK, Fleetwood Bac, Guns 2 Roses and Are You Experienced.
