The Ultimate Jethro Tull Experience


     Based in Worcester Massachusetts, “Living In The Past” is a six man group dedicated to performing the music of Jethro Tull.  Stretching from the blues – oriented music of their infancy – through their epic concept pieces – to their radio friendly singles ( all the while remaining loyal to their English folk heritage), Jethro Tull’s music is as poignant, dynamic and vital today as it has ever been.

     Jethro Tull contributed heavily to the 1970’s cultural collective now known as “Classic Rock”, and as the “retro movement” continues to grow, more young people are eager to see, and hear, and experience what they missed.  It is the mission of “Living In The Past” to faithfully recreate the music, the energy and the spirit of Jethro Tull, with authentic and theatric interpretations of their best loved works.

     “Living In The Past” was born out of the vision of singer Tom Barter, whose love for the music of Tull, coupled with his ability to duplicate the voice and acoustic guitar stylings of Tull founder Ian Anderson, could only lead to the forming of “The Ultimate Jethro Tull Experience.”  Over the last several years, “Living In the Past” has brought their show to a number of area nightclubs , including:


The Plantation Club, Worcester Ma.              The Palladium, Worcester Ma.


The Approach, Cape Cod Ma.                      The Waterfront, Chicopee Ma.


G. Willikers, Shrewsbury Ma.                        John Stone's Inn, Ashland, Ma.


The Landing Strip Cafe, Hopedale, Ma.        C.R. Goody’s, Keane NH.


The Station, Warwick RI.                                   Greendales, Worc. Ma.
