As followers of the UK country/Americana scene will know, Scotland's Ashton Lane have found their own niche in the increasingly popular field.

I particularly enjoyed the duo's lilting rendition of the old hymn "Who Comes This Night". If you enjoyed Ashton Lane's two albums or have a desire for Christmas country without the Nashville schmaltz, this is an EP for you.
