Aden Asquith hails from Yorkshire and has been entertaining audiences in the UK and abroad with his quirky songs and rhythmic guitar style under his alter ego Folkdisco. 25 countries on, he is showcasing his original songs at the Half Moon. He has been compared to Beck, Bright Eyes and Ray Davies for his songwriting and his sound, but Folkdisco is a new style all of his own.
