Since reaching the finals of the BBC Young Folk Awards in 2008, Jaywalkers have cemented their place as one of the most exciting, virtuosic and entertaining young bands working on the British Folk scene. Effortlessly creating a unique sound based on their collective and individual musical backgrounds, the band takes influence from Folk, Bluegrass, Country and Western Swing music in the form of virtuosic instrumentals, three part harmony and impressive slap bass. Add good humour, tasteful arrangements and exceptional musicianship to the mix and they are guaranteed to put a smile on your face…. The music Jaywalkers create is in­novative, rooted deeply in tradition, and exhilarating.

Jaywalkers are making a very welcome return from ACE Space.

Saskia

saskia-1124 - low res

Sakia first came to our attention after several folks recommend her after seeing her busking in Newbury.  When we discovered she had met the Jaywalkers at a bluegrass festival this was the obvious gig to invite her along to.

Saskia is a 24 year old independent English singer songwriter from London who tours the folk and acoustic scene year round. Frequently compared to Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell and Eva Cassidy for her pure, clear voice and nu-folk style repertoire, her music blends the classical simplicity of folks songs with contemporary moods, melodies and meaning.

Previously one of the worlds youngest Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapists with a practice on Harley Street London, in 2014 she left it all behind to pursue a career in music. She has since had three releases, run three successful crowdfunding campaigns and won a substantial arts council grant to tour her debut album Gentle Heart (2016).
