Tom Savage and Roberts Hall play stripped down set of new music

E-mail Print PDF

 It is always good to see Kingston singer-songwriter Tom Savage in Lethbridge. It has been a few years since he stopped by the Slice, but finally returned for a decent sized crowd, Sept. 15.

He played two sets as Nanaimo duo Roberts Hall, who were sharing the night, had a table full of enthusiastic friends and family in the audience.

 Savage opened the evening playing on his own with a variety of effects and speakers playing several blues tinged Bruce Springsteenish songs from his new CD “Everything Intertwined.”

 He played the title track as well as  a couple of highlights “Kid,” “Burnt By the Sun” and my favourite, “17 Years.”

 Roberts Hall aka Étienne McGuigan (guitar, lead vocals) and Brendan Holm (drums, synthesizer, guitar, vocals) played a really laid back set of multi-layered, personal folk involving plenty of switching instruments.

They ended their first set with a gospel blues tinged number  “Don’ t Go Down to The River.”
