Ian Scott Anderson is a Scottish musician, singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist best known for his work as the lead vocalist, flautist and acoustic guitarist of British rock band Jethro Tull. Anderson plays several other musical instruments, including keyboards, bass guitar, bouzouki, balalaika, saxophone, harmonica, and a variety of whistles.

Jethro Tull are a British rock band formed in Blackpool, Lancashire, in 1967. The band’s name came from Jethro Tull, an eighteenth century English farmer who invented the ‘seed drill’, a piece of agricultural equipment that made it possible for agricultural production to become mechanical.

The group found success with progressive rock albums such as Aqualung (1971), Thick as a Brick (1972) and A Passion Play (1973), and shifted again to hard rock mixed with folk rock with Songs from the Wood (1977) and Heavy Horses (1978).

In 1970, Anderson abandoned his ambition to play electric guitar, allegedly because he felt he would never be “as good as Eric Clapton”. He traded his electric guitar in for a flute which, after some weeks of practice, he found he could play fairly well in a rock and blues style.

Anderson is known for his famous one-legged flute stance, and was once referred to as a “deranged flamingo”.

Jethro Tull hits: “Aqualung”, “Thick As A Brick”, “Locomotive Breath”, “Songs From The Wood”, “Living In The Past”, “Cross-Eyed Mary”, “Life’s A Long Song”, “Bungle In The Jungle”, “Bouree”, “My God”, “Wond-ring Aloud”, “Rocks On The Road” and “The Christmas Song”.

Anderson married Shona Learoyd in 1976, and have two children: James Duncan Anderson, also a musician; and Gael, who works in the film industry and is married to actor Andrew Lincoln, star of the US TV drama series The Walking Dead.
