Rock legend Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull will be performing The Christmas Jethro Tull concert at Peterborough Cathedral.

Ian Anderson with The Christmas Jethro Tull
With much good humour and good cheer, Ian Anderson and his band will perform some of the more festive numbers from the prodigious Jethro Tull back catalogue, alongside other Christmas music and readings. There is also the promise of the odd surprise guest joining the line-up on the evening and members of Peterborough Cathedral Choir will be making an appearance too.

Ian Anderson is famed as the man who brought the flute to rock music. He maintains a busy touring schedule, often ending the year with yuletide concerts in cathedrals and churches. The self-professed non-believer nonetheless claims a huge affinity for the deeds and traditions of Christianity and this is his way of showing his support.

He says: "The bringing together of people of all backgrounds, cultures and faiths in this way is possible, perhaps, only under the auspices of modern Christianity, especially the Anglican Church. So, if I can help to draw people in to these beautiful and historic buildings to savour just a little of the spirit of Christmas, it seems like a worthwhile effort."

Jethro Tull was formed in 1968 and, with front man Ian Anderson, has released 30 studio and live albums, selling more than 60 million copies worldwide.
