Mick Abrahams tribute night set for May News / Christina O'Neill / 22 Feb 2016 Prog artists to celebrate former Jethro Tull guitarist 50-year career
A tribute night will be held for Mick Abrahams at London's Borderline on May 9.
The music event will raise funds to help the former Jethro Tull and Blodwyn Pig guitarist to buy disability equipment.
Special guests will include Rick Wakeman, Ray Dorset, Geoff Whitehorn, Clive Bunker, Elliott Randall, Dennis Greaves and Mark Feltham, along with many more.
The 72-year-old released his solo album Revived last year. He worked with artists including Bill Wyman, Martin Barre, Bernie Marsden and Paul Jones on the 17-track blues record. He also pledged to donate 50% of all its sales to Kids 'N' Cancer.
He said: “There are some lovely old songs which I’ve just taken with no rhyme or reason other than the fact that I like them and have always wanted to play them.”
Tickets can be purchased via the London Borderline website.
geostrehl: Do you guys and gals think Ian likes Steely Dan? I've been thinking about this recently. Ian has stated that he doesn't listen to much music, but I'm sure he's heard a lot of the Dan.

tryin2b: Hi Geostrehl U gotta luv Steely.have u heard "everything must go"? but i gotta say as a player, I don't feel the same groove. It's the difference between Cajun and Appallacian. I love them both

geostrehl: Everything Must Go is a fantastic album. Behind Tull, Steely Dan is my fav. It's busy and complicated, but not in a prog way (like Tull), but more in a jazz way. I just wonder what Ian thinks of Donald Fagen, and the other way around.

nonrabbit: Steely Dan were a huge part of my teenage years in the early 70's. Had every album - listened daily - dreamed of seeing them Live.
