Live Music with Tom Savage

June 10, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for live music at The Cove on June 10th, 2022 from 5-8pm with Tom Savage.

Tom Savage is what one might refer to as a triple-threat. One part truth-telling troubadour, one part death-defying guitar slinger, and one part Country Blues h…owler. Each facet of his formidable on-stage persona carefully crafted over a 20+ year devotion to the composition and performance of song. Tom is a true believer. A disciple of melody and harmony and tempo and timbre. An evangelist preaching to anyone who will listen of the healing and meditative powers of music. Pouring his heart out of his throat every night, while simultaneously shredding his fingertips in his relentless assault on the beat-up 1966 Guild acoustic he adores.

Tom’s music comes from places occupied by Townes Van Zandt and Bruce Springsteen, but also lurking in the shadows of influence are Jimi Hendrix and Jimmy Page in one corner, and Wes Montgomery and Freddie Robinson in another. Give a teenaged kid a cassette player and a radio dial ( circa 1988) and it is the equivalent of throwing the contents of the entire refrigerator into a blender. You have no idea what flavour the combination will result in. This is the time when many musical seeds where planted in Tom’s psyche, thus the beginning of a lifelong journey.

Where does he stand today? A writer of Country and Folk songs, sung in a weathered, emotive voice with a hint of a Bluesman’s growl, accompanied by fiery and fast rock n roll guitar licks (these days Savage opts for the acoustic guitar, occasionally mandolin, rather than reaching for the electric). Tom Savage is not your average folksinger.

“subtly brilliant…highly recommended” – Winnipeg Free Press

“Coming on like a rocking, later day Townes Van Zandt, Savage colors outside the lines with tales of those living beyond the margins. Every generation needs one who holds up the fun house mirror to the absurdities and this is a cult hero for our times”- Midwest Record Review“we are dealing with a brilliant poet and troubadour” – Country Jukebox“Recommended to those who still believe in Roots Rock power and poetry” – Lonestar Time” Magic present … an understanding of the vision of the song — crafting with clear original intention.” – Exclaim
