Wokingham Festival Headliner Martin Turner ex Wishbone Ash will treat crowds to a special golden anniversary set during their performance on Monday.


1970s band Martin Turner ex Wishbone Ash are looking forward to celebrating their musical milestone with guests of Wokingham Festival over the weekend.

The rock and roll group- founded by musicians Martin Turner and Steve Upton- will play a range of their greatest hits including those from albums Argus and Wishbone Ash.

Bassist and lead vocalist from the band, Martin Turner said: “The set will be a mishmash of our songs from the last 50 years.

“We very much enjoy performing at festivals and are looking forward to the feel-good factor that always accompanies these kind of events.”

“We’ve never played at Wokingham Festival before, but we have played at Wokingham Football Club which was great.”

Reflecting on the group’s history, the musician- who performed with the band at Reading Festival during the 70s- added: “We started from the bottom- knocking on doors and auditioning guitarists from all corners of London to make the group work- but we’re now in a good place.”

You can hear Martin Turner and his band when they perform on Monday at 5.45pm on the TradeMark Windows main stage.
