Annie Savage & the Savage Hearts


The Savage Hearts are a rising bluegrass-meets-honky-tonk band on Colorado’s musically innovative Front Range. Featuring string pedagogue Annie Savage along with songwriter/educator Kevin Slick, Old Town Pickin’ Parlor owner Kit Simon, fiddle phenom Nancy Steinberger and the driving bass boogie of Keith Summers, this Southwestern Bluegrass band specializes in high energy performances and has a passion for providing educational outreach. Members of The Savage Hearts band have recorded, performed and produced more than 30 albums. Headed up by fiddler and instructor, Annie Savage the band is hard at work on an album featuring students and professionals, “playing it forward together” in one studio, and all flavored with the spicy southwestern bluegrass sound for which The Savage Hearts are becoming known. The group’s influences range from the Bluegrass Album Band, Hot Rize, and the Quebe Sisters, to the twin fiddling of Bobby Hicks and Kenny Baker, and including the smoldering vocal stylings of Patsy Cline and assorted other Route 66-bound cowgirls.
