Saskia’s album launch tour comes to Tewkesbury!

 

The highly-rated young singer-songwriter Saskia Griffiths-Moore will visit Tewkesbury’s historic Old Baptist Chapel on Saturday 9th March.

 

Saskia Griffiths-Moore is a contemporary folk singer, blending simple acoustic songs with modern moods, melodies and meanings. She has been performing full time on the folk and acoustic circuit for three years, singing at folk clubs, theatres and festivals alike.

Saskia’s authentic sound has been featured four times on Sky Television (2017, 2018), and her newest single ‘All For You’ received national, and regional, BBC radio play. The young, Baez-esque, singer-songwriter of the folk world returns to put on creative live performances nationally and internationally, and, for her sins, has been awarded Arts Council funding three times for her UK wide tours. She also flaunts an endorsement from Steve Agnew Instruments in the form of an interesting looking, luthier-made, parlour guitar.

The special concert in Tewkesbury is part of the launch tour for her brand new album ‘Ocean of Stars’. Saskia will be joined on stage by two accomplished musicians, Lukas Drinkwater and Jack Cookson – both well known performers on the contemporary folk scene.
