Saskia started her career as Craniosacral therapist on Harley Street until her performing career took off. She has toured through the United Kingdom and across Europe including Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands, and Denmark.
On the 50th anniversary of Woodstock festival, 2019, Saskia recorded and released a commemorative album of folk music called 'Baez, Dylan and Me', featuring songs by Bob Dylan and Joan Baez that are evocative of that time period.
Accompanying Saskia at Abbey Road Studios were; Kit Hawes on Mandolin and guitar, Thomas Holder on double bass, and Joseph O'Keefe on Violin. The project was sponsored by JWC Guitars. She returned in December 2019 with a 40 person choir behind her and a string quartet to record the single 'For You'.

Recently a transatlantic record deal has been struck between Saskia and The Susanne Marcus Collins Foundation Inc. (US), and they are now working together on "creating quality acoustic music mirroring the style and capturing the energy of the great legacy folk artists." See full article here.
Instead of touring America, Canada, Europe and the UK this year, 2020 will see Saskia releasing her new album 'Are You Listening' on July 31st, and she is heading to Abbey Road Studios for the third time to record. She will also be completing a series of 'safe summer' concerts in August, and plans to raise money for charity later in the year, building towards touring again in 2021.
