“When I was 15, my parents took me to New York City,” recalls Empty
Hats lead singer, Carl Asch, “where we happened upon a street
performer reciting Shakespearean sonnets to a captivated crowd.
Watching this man hold and delight his audience, I felt I was
glimpsing my own future.”
And indeed he was. In the ensuing decades, Carl found himself
continually discovering and developing his talents. He studied
classical guitar at The American Institute of Guitar in NYC, languages
at SUNY-New Patlz and variety performing on streets and stages in the
U.S., Paris, London, Milan (where he got arrested), Venice, and
Seville. Folk Festivals, Renaissance Faires, Concert Halls, casinos,
two World’s Faires and the hundreds of thousands of people who
frequent them have been among his many supporters.
Today, Carl interweaves his skills as a musician, juggler, ropewalker,
and magician with his unique gift for personally touching each member
of his audience. Whether performing solo, with the band, or with his
20-year-old son Caleb, Carl Asch will enchant and uplift you.

“For the People”
