The Savage Hearts are a fiery bluegrass meets honky tonk band founded by original “Jeff Scroggins and Colorado” fiddler, Annie Savage. Audiences can expect a highly entertaining stage show with drill-it-to-the-wall three part harmonies and bombastic instrumentals. The band also specializes in stage banter that could bring a tear to a glass eye (from crying or laughing to both at the same time) and has a passion for providing educational outreach. Special guests have included Becky Buller (recorded on Playing It Forward), Ellie Hakanson, Kevin Slick (founding member), Jodi Harbin (tour mate 2018-2019), Jeff Scroggins and a rotating cast of twin fiddlers.
The Savage Hearts Trio (now booking dates!) is:
Annie Savage (voice, lead fiddle)
Tracy Lynn (voice, guitar)
Greg Blake (voice, lead guitar)
Recent performances include: 2017 IBMA Showcase and Band Ramble, 2017/18 Durango Meltdowns, 2011-2017 Kaufman Kamps, 2017/18 MidWinter Bluegrass Festivals and the International Folk Alliance conference in addition to presentations at the American String Teacher’s Association and various state and national level music education conferences.
We can offer anywhere from the trio to a 6 piece band (with bass, twin fiddle and banjo) for your event. We work with directly with you to provide the perfect combination of high energy stage performances with engaging workshops.
“You just nailed it! That’s how it should be done!”
KEN SEAMAN (MIDWINTER BLUEGRASS FESTIVAL)
“Just consider Annie Savage something of a fiddle expert.”
“Thank you so much for your excellent performance! You and your bandmates, especially those strong bluegrass women and your wild and crazy young fiddler really shined!”
LUCY SMITH (CBA SUITE MANAGER AT IBMA)
The Savage Hearts Trio look forward to bringing their spicy blend of Southwestern Bluegrass to your festival and workshop stage.
