We’re very pleased to announce that Ash will be performing as our main Friday night headliners at LeeStock Music Festival 2022.
Ash are a Northern Irish rock band formed in Downpatrick, County Down in 1989 by vocalist and guitarist Tim Wheeler, bassist Mark Hamilton and drummer Rick McMurray.
As a three-piece, they released mini-album Trailer in 1994 and full-length album 1977 in 1996. The 1977 album release was named by NME as one of the 500 greatest albums of all time. After the success of their full debut the band recruited Charlotte Hatherley as a guitarist and vocalist, releasing their second record Nu-Clear Sounds in 1998. The band released Free All Angels in 2001 with a string of successful singles.
So far the band has had one silver, two gold and two platinum-selling (and chart-topping) records in the United Kingdom, as well as 18 songs in the top 40 of the UK Singles Chart.
