Ashton’s full-on, hardcore contemporary blues show is powerful and dynamic and interlaced with semi-acoustic lap slide and 12-string pieces where he blends in ethnic dance rhythms, beats and grooves. Giving100% relentless energy and drive at each show, he is a unique force to be reckoned with, so be prepared for Gwyn Ashton to rock the house.
