Tull's Anderson in tune with his Scottish roots
"Musical development for Anderson was about identifying the sound. He listened to bits of Scottish folk and church music and wanted to play elements of blues in a way that felt more natural to him – as white and middle class – so in a more emotionally honest way.
In was in the Sixties - the Beatles were in the spotlight - when Anderson mucked around with folk tunes as he honed his music. He would visit the Scottish lowlands to experience "the essence of folk music … as it taps into something ancient.""
