Ancient Shamans Online

Singer-songwriter Sam Ashton formerly of The Whisky Mystics put together Ancient Shamans with guitarist Daniel Housego and drummer Kieran Dunne. The resulting heady mix of blues, rock and funk delivers the perfect musical backdrop to Sam Ashtons powerful and thought provoking lyrics. They work hard in the rehearsal studio on new material and recorded their first, all original, CD in early March 2010. Since their first gig in February 2010 the band have continued to promote themselves playing live shows across the south.  Recently playing at the Rhythm Factory in London.
