Ashton Lane are husband and wife duo Esther and Tim O'Connor and they are part of a new wave of homegrown modern country music originating in the UK.
Last year Ashton Lane performed at the famous Country 2 Country festival in London, as well as receiving nominations in two categories at the BCMAs (British Country Music Awards) for best duo and best song. They also played an impressive set at McEwan’s Party At The Palace in August, and toured extensively round Europe.
2017 sees Ashton Lane gearing up towards the release of 3 new singles and an album to follow. They are previewing some of their brand new songs via their highly popular “Kitchen Sessions” (over 1.6 million views and counting).
Having already toured Europe earlier this year, they will be heading back out to Germany and Austria in the Autumn as well as a UK tour to promote the new single in Spring 2018. Fresh from a slot at this summer’s Isle of Wight Festival alongside Ward Thomas and The Shires, they are now looking forward to the Millport Country Music Festival where they have been invited to join the line-up alongside The Shires and Mark Chestnutt.
Their most recent album Nashville Heart also received five star reviews and radio support around the UK and Europe.
