Fresh off stage from supporting Kris Kristofferson at Kenwood House in London the night before, Ashley Campbell drove all the way down to Kent with her band to take to the main stage at Black Deer Festival on Saturday. Ashley stood centre stage with her banjo which she is known for and showcased her exceptional banjo playing skills to a very eager crowd. Starting with Better Boyfriend from her recently released debut album The Lonely One, Ashley had the crowd in the palm of her hand with her sweet vocals and quirky lyrics.
One highlight was her instrumental piece Carl and Ashley’s Breakdown which live, was sensational. Ashley performed some of her best tracks off her album such as Good For You, The Lonely One, Nothing Day, I Wish I Wanted To, A New Year and more as well as covering one of her father Glen Campbell’s best known hits Gentle on My Mind and her stunning dedication song to him titled Remembering.
Ashley never disappoints live, a musician, a songwriter and singer, Ashley has it all and shows true professionalism on stage as well a relaxed, let’s hang out kind of vibe.
Ashley will return to the UK to play The Long Road Festival in Leicestershire in September along with a stellar line up of fantastic country and americana artists.
