Sam Brothers is a massive talent - a remarkable guitarist and unique song-writer, blessed with an astonishing voice that recalls the gentle sensitivity of Nick Drake, but underscored by the screaming power and swooping range of Jeff Buckley……. And with something more, an honesty and intensity that is purely Sam Brothers. His songs reflect the truths that his single-minded lifestyle and tough choices have delivered. Rooted in
the raw passion of the early protest singers and touching on the beauty of the first
wave of folksters – Sam’s songs are invested with echoes of Dylan, Buckley, Drake,
Van Zandt, and all the stops along the long, old, lonely road that those illustrious
names illuminate.

 

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

Having left school with not much more than a GCSE in Astronomy, Saskia set up practice on Harley street as the world’s youngest craniosacral therapist, which she promptly left behind age 22 to follow her passion into music, learning her craft on the streets; busking, singing and touring her way through the country all the while living in her campervan without WiFi or electricity

Saskia's authentic sound has found her featured on twice on Sky Television (2017, 2018), and her newest single 'All For You' (distributed by UMG) is currently receiving regular BBC play across the country. The young, Baez-esque, singer-songwriter of the folk world returns year round to stage after stage 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 now lives in London, which fulfils her need for culture, but not nature, and remains and independent and self managing artist.
