5 On Friday

Below are 5 songs by Jethro Tull, specifically songs that feature some classical music influence along with some folk Irish/celtic flavor. At times it reminds me of medieval music.

#1 is my favorite: a jazzy rearrangement of J. S. Bach’s Bourrée in E minor. Ian Anderson plays the flute.

Jethro Tull are a British rock group formed in 1967. Their music is characterised by the lyrics, vocals and flute work of Ian Anderson, who has led the band since its founding, and guitarist Martin Barre, who has been with the band since 1969.
Initially playing blues rock with an experimental flavour, they have also incorporated elements of classical music, folk music, jazz and art rock into their music.

  1. Oh wow, I haven't listened to Jethro Tull since I was a teenager it seems like that and that was a darned long time ago. I always loved their stuff – thanks for the reminder!
