Aden Asquith (Folkdisco) is singer, guitarist and musician. He writes and performs his own beautiful, funky songs, and has been compared to everyone from Cat Stevens (voice) to Bright Eyes (song writing) to Mick Jagger (entertainment).
He also plays a huge range of over 200 cover songs as Folkdisco. These range from crowd pleasing favourites and mass singalongs, to surprising and wondrously loopy makeovers, that somehow make an uncool song sound like the best thing you've ever heard. Covers range from ABBA to the Zutons, via Johnny Cash and Lady Gaga. He is a fantastic entertainer, always great at getting the crowd singing along, hanging around a few hours longer than they intended, and generally dancing around their handbags.
He has been playing regularly since 2006, in pubs, clubs, festivals, parties, weddings, private events and street entertaining in the UK and abroad. Venues include famed Brazen Head in Dublin, Glastonbury Festival, Hop Farm, and live sessions on radio stations across England.
He generally performs in a retro acoustic style, but also utilises a variety of percussion and electronics. He has played in 25 different countries, in front of hundreds of thousands of people. Possibly millions.
You can find some of his own songs at:
