Tonight at The Musician: The Gwyn Ashton Trio

Cheeseweasel Promotions Presents…

The Gwyn Ashton Trio
Thursday 21st February
plus special guest Mark Stanway of Magnum
plus The Nick Shepherd Blues Duo
Aussie guitar maestro Gwyn Ashton is back at The Musician with his new trio featuring Nick Skelson (Sinnerboy) on bass and ex Magnum drummer Mickey Barker.

On this special night they are joined by Magnum's keyboard player Mark Stanway, celebrating Ashton's latest release 'Radiogram' which Stanway played on, and marking the first gig Barker and Stanway have played together since 1995!

Classic Rock Blues magazine voted 'Radiogram' Best Of 2012 and it features Ashton on guitar, bass, vocals and harmonica. The diverse guest artist roster includes Don Airey (Deep Purple, Rainbow, Whitesnake, Black Sabbath), Kim Wilson (Fabulous Thunderbirds), Robbie Blunt (Robert Plant, Bronco, Silverhead), Johnny Mastro (LA’s Mama’s Boys), Mark Stanway (Magnum, Phil Lynott), Mo Birch (UB40, Go West, Culture Club), Henry Parker and Kev Hickman. 'Radiogram' was recorded in England, mixed in LA by Lost Prophets’ producer Justin Hopfer and mastered in Australia by Don Bartley, who was recently commissioned by EMI to re-master the audiophile version of Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.

"Ashton’s on top form as a singer and too good a guitarist to remain one of the ‘best kept secrets’ in the music community" - R2
