Major innovators of the harmony twin lead guitar format, British rockers wishbone ash are bringing their original sound back to Vancouver. Respected and admired by musicians and fans the world over, the twin lead guitar attack became the trademark of the band on such hits as “Helpless”, “Runaway”, “Lorelei”, “Persephone”, “You Rescue Me”, “Outward Bound”, “Mother Of Pearl”, “Rest In Peace” and “Bad Weather Blues”. Whether it’s lead and rhythm, simultaneous leads, twin harmonies or extended instrumental breaks, the guitars are complimentary, inventive and melodic. The rhythm section lends its full support with grooving, propulsive pockets while the bass brings another lead element into the mix. The musical mastery each member brings to the band is seen in the arrangement, feel and mood of their songs.
Through 43 years and a musical resumé that includes more than 30 albums and several DVD performances, the constant of WISHBONE ASH has been ANDY POWELL, voted into the Ten Most Important Guitarists in Rock History (Traffic magazine 1989) and the Top 20 Guitarists Of All Time (Rolling Stone).
