Corin Ashley @ T.T. The Bear’s Place 4.27.2011

Corin Ashley is a man of many talents.  The guy plays bass like nobody’s business.  He is easily one of Boston’s best. He’s no slouch on guitar, either. Now we see Corin busting out his ukulele for this uke-themed show at TT’s.

What’s really on display during Mr Ashley’s set isn’t his ukulele playing.  It’s not even his outstanding vocal abilities.  What really comes out during this set are the songs.  Corin can write a pop tune with the best of ’em.  These songs could be played on tin whistle and autoharp with accompaniment from a middle school recorder orchestra and their appeal would still be undeniable.

Plus, he has a strap for his ukulele so you know he’s serious.
