Performing live at The Pheasantry, London's leading alt-acoustic independent artists - headliner Saskia GM and support Hollie Rogers - will bring you their original music, hosted by comedian, Nathan Jones-Carr. Expect a night of meaningful songwriting, sheer musicianship and witty banter! Presented in conjunction with Acoustic Sanctuary.

Saskia Griffiths-Moore found her distinct alt-acoustic style with friends Lukas Drinkwater and Jack Cookson who perform all together as a multi-instrumental, roots based trio, lead by Saskia's clear vocals and unusual songwriting.

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 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 performance projects.

She now lives in London, which fulfils her need for culture, but not nature, and remains and independent and self managing artist.

Hollie Rogers is a powerful singer-songwriter, and performs with notable candour and honesty. She has supported acts like Suzanne Vega, Midge Ure, Paolo Nutini and Ben Howard. Her newest release was produced by 4-time Grammy-nominated James McMillan, and features Thomas Holder on double bass, with Mark Edwards (Katie Melua) on piano.
