The AshDads

Hey, welcome to The AshDads' website!

We're a roots-rock, alt-country kinda band from Renfrew, Ontario. We haunt the pubs, clubs, dance-halls and festivals of Ottawa and the Valley.
We're working on some new material for the ongoing recording work and still love to do the covers that we covet. Come on out and set-a-spell... tap yer toes... maybe do the chicken wing. And in case you were wondering Ashdad is a crossroads near Renfrew that, back in the day, was a railroad stop along the K&P Line.

Hope to see you at one of our gigs!
