PERFORMANCES DESCRIPTION

Music Stories Hats Mischief Innovation
A theatrical Entertainment Package

Originals and Covers Performed in Original Ways. My act incorporates loop machines, stories and comedy. I designed the double necked guitar, hats and costumes. This is folk rock, but many styles are used. I have been descibed as imaginative; an incredibly skilled musician and songwriter; unique, brave, and completely naturalistic.

QUOTATIONS

“It’s as if a woodland sprite has come to life, or an oak tree has walked in, tuned up and started sharing its mysteries. Collectively you are hypnotised.”
(The Tower of Song: Brum 2008)

“An intense performance from a man with the vocal range of Tim Buckley… Folk infused with influences from around the globe, with unique arrangements and flashes of theatrical genius… A modern day troubadour”
(Rachel Wild 2006: Free lance journalist)

People look at Ash and it’s always “What’s he got there?” or “hat on earth is he doing now?” (he’s that sort of performer). It adds to the attraction; makes it more memorable.”
(Steve Henwood - Bath Fringe 2007)
