Gwyn Ashton’s latest project sees him reinvented as a high-energy, hard rockin’ one-man electric blues band. He’s back with a brand new album ‘Solo Elektro’ and has been smashing stages all over the world with some major acts. Live, the UK-based Australian singer/songwriter/guitarist blends in an eclectic mix of acoustic grassroots & roots music and plays material from his eight studio albums plus interpretations of classic songs on an array of guitars and various ethnic instruments.
From searing electric slide guitar to the subtleties of delicate open-tuned acoustics, Ashton’s virtuoso skills on the instrument and stage presence are at the heart of his shows, with the full-band sound achieved through a mix of vintage and modern guitar effects and kick drum. Pushing the boundaries of a solo performer, he creates a rich palette of soundscapes without the need for backing tracks or even a set list. With a natural crowd rapport, he works his audience hard. From a whisper to a scream, he is a dynamic and mesmerising soulful guitarist, vocalist and writer of songs about life and observations collected from over 30 years on the road.
Armed with a touring arsenal consisting of his signature ‘Gwyn Ashton’ Liutart guitar, various Stratocasters, electric sitar, dulcimer, vintage Japanese budget guitars, National steel, Hawaiian lap slide and 12-string guitars, he fuses the blues with dance rhythms, beats and grooves. Sounding retro, with a modern evolution, Gwyn Ashton is a true contemporary and untouchable solo artist, carving up stages from the UK to Ireland, Australia, Russia, Brazil, all across Europe and always gives 100% relentless energy and drive at each show.
Ashton has appeared /toured with BB King, Ray Charles, Buddy Guy, Mick Taylor, Rory Gallagher, Peter Green, Junior Wells, Johnny Winter, Robin Trower, Jeff Healey, The Yardbirds, Status Quo, Magnum and many others, jammed onstage with Canned Heat, Mick Fleetwood, Hubert Sumlin, Joe Louis Walker, Marc Ford and more. He has recorded with Kim Wilson, Robbie Blunt, Chris Glen/Ted McKenna (SAHB, MSG), Don Airey (Deep Purple, Whitesnake, Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne) and Gerry McAvoy & Brendan O'Neill (Rory Gallagher). Ashton replaced Thin Lizzy/Motörhead guitarist Brian Robertson fronting Band Of Friends - a memorial to Rory Gallagher featuring Gerry, Brendan, Lou Martin and Mark Feltham, his former band members.Doors & restaurant 7pm.
