Last night, I had the fun of attending a free concert at Twin River Casino in Lincoln, RI featuring Aqualung, a Jethro Tull tribute band.

I had to do a google search on “string insturments” to positively identify it. For those of you, like myself, who didn’t quite realize the talented musical skill behind Jethro Tull, here is the original:
Oh…. and piano playing to rival Marvin Hamlisch … Nobody does it better….
