For most of the people who made it to the Hell Blues Festival in Norway on the 12th. and 13th. of September, 1997, Tony Ashton was the highlight of the weekend. Apart from 2 very successful nights with his trio, he also was part of the Hell Blues Band which featured guitarist Bernie Marsden and bass player Colin Hodgkinson. Ashton also had his latest paintings exhibited and those apparently went down very well with the festival's audiences.
