Ash & Andy are a dynamic Old Time duo performing both traditional and original repertoire. With powerfully uplifting vocal harmonies and driving fiddle and banjo duets, their sound evokes a simpler time when this music served as a uniting communal pastime and provided a lively atmosphere for rural house parties and dance halls throughout Appalachia. A member of Melbourne-based acoustic trio One Up, Two Down and a sideman with many top American Bluegrass artists, Andrew Small is a native North Carolinian and has received numerous prizes for his fiddle and banjo playing at contests throughout the southeastern US. Ashlee Watkins was raised in a musical family outside of Newcastle, NSW, and has displayed her pure and powerful vocals and solid rhythm guitar playing at music festivals in the United States and Australia. Both Ash and Andy perform interchangeably on fiddle, banjo, guitar, and mandolin, and are respected members of the North Carolina and Victoria Old-Time music scenes.
