One of the most celebrated Canadian roots musicians of all time, having sold 500,000 plus albums, Ashley has  garnered international acclaim with hard-nosed, traditional Cape-Breton style, while adding his own spin, mixing genres and updating Celtic music to appeal to a broader spectrum of fans. Much has been said about the antics of the enfant terrible of the Fiddle, but only because he has had international success and notoriety from an early age.
