Ian Anderson

Ian Anderson Overview

Ian Anderson, MBE, is a Scottish singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, best known as the leader and rock and blues flautist of British rock band Jethro Tull. Anderson plays several other musical instruments, including acoustic and electric guitar, bass, bouzouki, balalaika, saxophone, harmonica, and a variety of whistles. His tendency to stand on one leg while playing the flute came about by accident, as he had been inclined to stand on one leg while playing the harmonica, holding the microphone stand for balance. During a long stint at the Marquee Club, a journalist described him, wrongly, as standing on one leg to play the flute. He decided to live up to the reputation.

In recognition of his lifelong contribution to popular music, Anderson received two honours in 2006: the Ivor Novello Award for International Achievement, and an honorary Doctorate of Literature at Heriot-Watt University. In the 2008 New Year Honours, Anderson was appointed Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE). In 2011, he was awarded an Honorary Doctorate (Doctor of Letters) from Abertay University.
