"perhaps Thom Ashworth is in the vanguard of a new generation of protest singers" - Folk Radio UK
An acoustic bass guitar may not seem like an obvious choice as an accompaniment instrument, but Thom shows that this distinctive
instrumental voice can find a home in folk music, and that 4 strings are enough to delve into the canon of British folk music.
Equal parts interpreter of traditional song and insightful political songwriter, the press have compared him to @Martin Carthy, @Chris Wood, and @Richard Thompson. This selection of luminaries doesn't tell the whole story though - from the sparse lament of "The City and The Tower" to his muscular arrangement of "Ratcliffe Highway", Thom's inventive musicality and powerful tenor voice shine through. His unique talent also won him creative seed funding in 2018 from EFDSS, money well spent on bringing together the 11 tracks on his debut album "Head Canon"
Live highlights to date include Cambridge Folk Festival, Sidmouth Folk Festival, and Shambala, and sharing stages with @Lankum, @Stick In The Wheel, @Kris Drever and @Chris Wood.
