Ash Mandrake

What’s that you say “More free entertainment, how can that be with so much already?”
Well it’s true …. The Ash Mandrake Act incorporates music, loop machines, stories and comedy. He designed the double necked guitar, hats and costumes. This is folk rock, but many styles are used. He has been described as imaginative; an incredibly skilled musician and songwriter; unique, brave, and completely naturalistic.

See him over the weekend outside the Platform. Count how many hats he wears or buy one from him, he makes them all himself.
