Trio touring to the Central

The Tom Savage Trio is bringing their dirt road rock and roll to Fernie.

Dirt road rock and roll is making it’s way across the country to The Central in Fernie.

“Dirt road rock and roll is a mix of alternative country, blues and jam band,” said Tom Savage, of the Ontario-based band Tom Savage Trio.

Savage has been playing the guitar since he was 13, and at 19 years old he began pursuing music professionally.

“I’d written a bunch of songs that I felt should be electrified,” he said. “It was music that really lent itself to a power trio format.”

Savage leads the trio on guitar and vocals, with Geoff Chown on bass and Sandy Mackenzie on drums.

The Tom Savage Trio is touring on their album The County Line.

Savage said that Neil Young heavily influenced guitar sound and songwriting.

“I was really going for the crunchy guitar sound from the Crazy Horse album Ragged Glory,” he said.

It’s been several years since Savage has been through Fernie, but he said people coming out to the show can expect great guitar paired with good songwriting.

“It’s great guitar rock and upbeat music. There will be lots of guitar solos and jams. It will be a good time,” he said.

The Tom Savage Trio will take the stage at The Central on May 26.
