Multi-instrumentalist Gwyn Ashton is an eclectic live performer blending roots, blues, alternative and ethnic music, fusing them together with alternate-tuned electro-acoustic instruments such as Weissenborn lap slide, National resonators, 12-string and electric guitars with a kick drum, blues harp along with loopers and fuzz boxes to complete his sonic palette.
He is a master of the slide guitar and has an armoury of instruments at his fingertips to create a unique, huge-sounding one-man live show.
Ashton grew up playing the Australian circuit and re-located to the UK in 1996. He has opened for top-billing artists – Van Morrison, Status Quo, Johnny Winter, Canned Heat, Robin Trower and a multitude of other fine musicians. He has released six albums and one EP, came third place behind Jeff Beck and Gary Moore in a French guitar magazine poll, had two albums simultaneously in the Amazon Top 100. He now records, tours and plays festivals all over the world from his Euro base.
