Green: Jack-in-the-Green

Jethro Tull: Jack-in-the-Green


Green. As in Irish, of course. But also as in the first tender shoots of spring. The calendar still says winter, but the first shoots of flowering plants are emerging in our garden. Soon enough, there will be flowers.

Jack-in-the-Green is the personification of this promise of spring. And the song, for my money, is one of Jethro Tull’s best.
