Championed by BBC Radio 2, Craig Charles and BBC 6 Music, Ashton Jones is one of the UK’s most dynamic live performers. He’s appeared at Ronnie Scott’s, Cheltenham Festival and London’s Pizza Express. And fronted Amazon’s global ad campaign singing Freddie Scott’s classic ‘You Got What I Need’.

Ashton is, of course, no stranger to Lyme Regis. Last year he shared the spotlight with Leigh Coleman and Phoebe Jane in Sweet Soul Music. Now, he’s centre stage with his own show celebrating the music he loves.
