Album Notes
Everyone who has been interested in the North Carolina music scene in the past 27 years has been exposed to the talents of Jim Ashton in one venue or another. That full sound that has rounded out many a band has been his pedal steel guitar work, adding depth and emotion. By personality not a front-man, Jim has been working his craft at the back of the stage performing with singer songwriters such as Jonathan Birchfield , Michael Reno Harrell , Robin Rogers , Lacy Green and Chris Cook and as a touring member of The Carter Brothers Band and the infamous bluegrass jam band, Cast Iron Filter .
Not one to rush into things, Jim has released a CD of original music that defies categories but will be very appealing to a variety of music lovers. Call it a fusion recording if you will, BANJO by Jim Ashton hints of Bluegrass, Americana, and New Age , blended in a Picassoesque composition that is new while hitting enough familiar notes to be pleasing. It has a banjo backbone, played with a sensitivity, versatility, and seriousness that is seldom heard on the banjo. Supported by fiddle players Glen Alexander and Tim Lorsch, well known guitarists Reggie Harris , Jaret Carter ,the soulful mandolin of Patrick Crouch, with acoustic bass provided by Ross Sermons, Jim takes us many places, all outdoors. This is traveling music, even if it is all in your mind .
