- Gwyn Ashton
- Blues/ Rock
Wales-born, Australia-based guitarist, active since the 1960s.
Over the years Ashton has played onstage with Mick Fleetwood, Marc Ford, and Canned Heat and has opened for Ray Charles, Wishbone Ash, Van Morrison, Jeff Healey, and many more.
With one foot rooted in pre-war Delta blues, the other in a hotchpotch of country, swamp, jazz, rock, soul and folk, there are more sides to Gwyn Ashton than meets the eye. Ashton's experiences are amplified by the resonator of his well-beaten, electrified 1936 National guitar, his Weissenborn lap-slide and an array of other acoustic and electric instruments. His use of 21st century technology such as looping guitars, scratches and other percussive noises validates him as a modern-day rogue bluesman.
