Author Flavia Andrade - 20.2.2024

Jethro Tull have announced that guitarist Joe Parrish will be leaving the band at the end of this month, in order to focus on his own prog band, Albion, who recently released their latest album “Lakesongs Of Elbid”.

The band have also announced his replacement, Jack Clark, who has played keyboards, bass and even second guitar in the band on live dates in the past.

Tull have shared on social media:

Sadly, at the end of February, we must bid farewell to guitarist Joe Parrish James who joined the band in 2020, just in time for Covid! Now, four years later, Joe has decided to leave to concentrate on his own recording and producing work and to further the development of his folk-rock band Albion UK.

All of us in the band and crew wish Joe all the best and thank him for his hard work and creativity on stage as well as on the last two Tull albums in 2022 and 2023.

His place will be taken from March onwards by Jack Clark who has performed on bass guitar during some tours with the band in the last two years as well as currently playing second guitar, covering the keyboard parts while John O’Hara is temporarily unavailable.
