Chris Johnston & Steve Ashton
Chris and Steve hail from Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia respectively. Individually, they cut their teeth in the vibrant music scenes in St. John’s, Toronto and Alberta, as well as in Atlantic Canada. They have played on the same stages as Gordie Sampson, Ashley MacIsaac, the Barra MacNeils, Trooper, Jeff Healey and Econoline Crush. It is that collective experience they bring to their shows, which are characterized by their dual guitars, harmony vocals and high energy. The guys also perform under the name “The Broad Cove Boys” with good friend Tim Glogowski (mandolin, harmonica, vocals) – so named because they married three beauties from Broad Cove, Inverness County on Cape Breton Island. Rounding out the band on occasion is the very talented Neil Colosimo on keyboards and guitar.

In October 2013, they released their self-titled CD, featuring 12 originally penned tunes that recall Blue Rodeo, Tom Petty and the local Maritime music they have grown up on. The CD was launched at the Hart & Thistle in Halifax. Check it out at: http://chrisandsteve.bandcamp.com/
