Jethro Tull Family Tree

The All Music Guide lists 21 musicians who have, at some point in their career, been part of the renaissance rock unit Jethro Tull.

This playlist selects songs by bands that are connected to Jethro Tull through at least one member. It contains a mix of celtic folk, classic rock and progressive rock, just as one would expect, but not as much flute as you would find on the typical Tull record.

If this playlist were in a visual medium, you would also notice a reduction in man-tights and codpieces. So count yourself lucky.

Band family trees are a great way to become familiar with the connections between groups through common group members. And many times they can turn you on to an artist you were not familiar with, especially if you're a fan of the band being traced. For example, most won't be surprised by the Jethro Tull connection to Ian Anderson's solo material, Fairport Convention and Pentangle, but Black Sabbath, Whitesnake and The Proclaimers? Yes, it's true, and you can dig further by clicking on a band member's name at the end of this article. Try your hand a creating your own with the help of or
