About Chris Ashton

Premier acoustic singer with over a decade of experience in high profile events for the likes of Andy Murray, Wet Wet Wet and Lewis Capaldi.
Public liability insurance of £10 million

From being a busker to touring the world internationally , I have been through the trenches. I honed my performing skills in bars and restaurants across central Scotland and continue to. Having performed alongside some big acts like Wet Wet Wet, Lewis Capaldi and Boyce Avenue - I have built a strong resume that has helped continue my music career. I have no issues taking requests from audiences and learning on the go and I feel this separates me from many other working musicians.

What a night. Chris knows how to put on a show! All of our guests were commenting on how good he was and the dance floor was full all night. A great mix of old and modern music. Could not recommend highly enough! Thanks for a brilliant night!

Absolutely amazing night! Chris played at my wedding on Saturday and kept the floor full all night and knew exactly what the crowd wanted - thanks again.
