One of the most celebrated Canadian roots musicians of all time, having sold in excess of 500,000 albums, Ashley has garnered international acclaim by playing the fiddle in that hard-nosed, traditional Cape-Breton style, while adding his own spin, mixing genres and updating Celtic music to appeal to a broader spectrum of fans.
He has appeared on the Conan O’Brian show, the Today Show and has been a spotlight at international festivals, theatres and halls all over the world. We are honoured to have him at Re-Jigged 2018.
At home in Nova Scotia, Ashley needs no introduction. He’s at once a tradition bearer and a champion of new ideas who shines a light on cultural traditions and ushers them into the 21st century.
