Michael Timothy ‘Mick’ Abrahams is a guitarist and band leader, best known as being the original guitarist for Jethro Tull. Abrahams was born in Luton, Bedfordshire. He played on the album This Was recorded by Jethro Tull in 1968, but left the band after he’d clashed with Ian Anderson over their musical direction.
Abrahams went on to found Blodwyn Pig and recorded two albums, Ahead Rings Out (1969) and Getting to This (1970) before leaving in 1970 to form the Mick Abrahams Band. Abrahams has continued to release albums by himself and with reunited versions of Blodwyn Pig. His Tolmen Centre concert will be a solo acoustic set.
