The music series is bringing Ontario musician Tom Savage to the stage at the Green Hill – Alma United Church.
“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 howler,” his bio says about him.
Savage is described as “not your average folksinger,” naming influences such as Townes Van Zandt, Bruce Springsteen, Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Wes Montgomery and Freddie Robinson.
He writes 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,” preferring to use acoustic guitar and occasionally mandolin.
Savage was recommended to the organizer of Monday Music by Pictou‘s songstress of the blues, Annette Drapeau Reynolds, who joined performing with other members of the Full Circle Blues Band in Alma back in February.
Savage will be in concert on Monday, June 5, at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $10 or what you can afford.
Organizers also note potential audience members to stay tuned for the summer line-up, promising there will be something for everyone.
