This album is the realisation of a lifelong dream of Ashley, who has dedicated much of his spare time since the age of 6 to learning to play the melodeon/button accordion. Ashley was born in Diggle and has spent his life surrounded by music; from the tunes of the Saddleworth Morris Men to the UK folk scene and local music sessions. Ashley began playing music professionally at the age of 12 and has never looked back. From playing with the Plain Brown Wrapper Band to forming The All New Wrapper Band and, more recently, the Ashley Ashworth Ceilidh Band, his music career has seen Ashley tour the UK and Brazil. Ashley also plays with many other bands on request.
Alistair Russell comes from North-East England. He has been singing and playing Scottish and Irish music, and his own songs, for over 30 years, chiefly as a member of Scotland’s legendary Battlefield Band from 1984 to 1997. He has 15 albums, 2 video releases and a tutor DVD to his name. He currently performs solo, with Chris Parkinson and with The Rogues, besides being active as a live and recording sound engineer/producer and tour manager.
