Ian Anderson was lead musician and flute player for the band Jethro Tull. Last Thursday 18 October he
performed the "Thick as a Brick" album which is actually one long 44 minute song. It is the
autobiographical poem of a fictional child. A kind of musical inside joke.
The performance was held at the Chumash Casino, complete with performers in costume.
After a short intermission the program continued with the new "Thick as a Brick 2".
Anderson played guitar and flute, including his signature move of standing on one leg while playing the
flute. His flute playing included many other signature Ian Anderson tricks, including a trill-like "flutter" that
is a musical feat to behold!
