Will you be lucky enough to nab the last remaining tickets to enjoy an intimate evening of music, cabaret & comedy as part of Lyme’s Fossil Festival?
The concert is in aid of Lyme-based environmental charity, The Word Forest Organisation. Founders Tracey and Simon West, are delighted to present incredible musical talent from alt-acoustic singer, Saskia Griffiths-Moore, laced together with comedy from the charismatic alternative London comedian, Nathan Jones-Carr. The event is being held at the ambient, new eco-friendly community space, The Driftwood, at the Lyme Regis Baptist Church.
Saskia’s powerful vocals are gaining her notoriety nationally and internationally, securing regular plays on BBC radio and even won her a recent spot on national TV; think Sandy Denny and Joni Mitchell and you’re on the right track. Saskia has become a regular headliner at folk festivals around the country and is undoubtedly a rising star. Her contemporary talents recently sold out a UK and European tour to launch her second album, ‘Night and Day’.
The carbon footprint created by the production of Saskia’s album was offset by planting trees with Word Forest, who are leading a mission to get urgently needed trees in the ground, build schools and facilitate education, in impoverished communities in Kenya.
Word Forest’s CEO Tracey West, recently founded a groundbreaking women’s tree planting empowerment group, which is also helping to combat social isolation and depression too. Their fast-growing tropical forests are helping the communities to lift themselves out of poverty with commodities from the trees, and also mitigating the devastating effects of climate change, by absorbing CO2 at an exponential rate.
Expect a night of meaningful lyrics, sheer musicianship and witty banter, bound together by a positive message of social change.
Doors Open 7:30pm, licensed bar available. Tickets £7 in advance or £10 on the door. To book, visit WordForest.org/events, or call Simon on 07896 884 114.
