A rare, triple-threat singer, songwriter, and instrumentalist, Alex Ashley Music creates an electrifying amalgam of insightful lyrics, profound storytelling, sultry, smoky vocals, and razor-sharp guitar playing that brings his songs to life with nostalgic effervescence. At just 27 years old, Ashley has been described as “a well-seasoned musician with years of traveling [and playing] every juke joint on the road…,” crossing the boundaries of folk, blues, and Americana music with new and original songwriting.
Opening for him are local favorites The Naughty Sweethearts, featuring Megan Alder (guitar) & Alex Klivecka (banjo & harmonica). After a winter in New Orleans, the couple now lives in the Washington woods focusing exclusively on their craft. The band’s new original songs are full of energy and groove. With the acoustic instrumentation of traditional roots music and the swagger of New Orleans stomp, the Sweethearts have developed a hybrid sound that will keep ears entertained.
