Walton Folk - Saskia Griffiths-Moore

Saskia Griffiths-Moore is a young Brit-Country artist with an unusual take on life, increasingly known for her contemporary, cross genre songwriting which draws from Roots, Americana and Folk influences.

Often compared to Joan Baez, and Joni Mitchell for her clear vocals, Saskia enjoys performing year round on the acoustic circuit, on her own, and with her star-studded band.  On this occasion, she brings her trio, featuring Riverhouse favourite Lukas Drinkwater (Jacob & Drinkwater, Emily Barker, Seth Lakeman) and Jack Cookson (BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award Finalist 2016).

In the last four years as a full time, international touring artist, her original sound has found her featured five times on Sky TV’s Folk Show (2017, 2018), and her latest recordings received both national wide BBC promotion, as well as garnering 4 and 5 star reviews in Maverick and RnR Magazine respectively. For her sins, she has been awarded Arts Council funding three times for these tours, and currently flaunts an endorsement from Steve Agnew Instruments in the form of an interesting looking, luthier-made, parlour guitar.​
