Tough Old Bird | Savannah Smith (Americana/Folk) $5
Thursday, June 14 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Formed in the small community of Fillmore, New York by songwriting brothers Matthew and Nathan Corrigan, Tough Old Bird plays modern folk music that reflects the landscape it comes from, a place where the last train just pulled out and the carnival is always on its way to the next town.
Since its formation in 2013, Tough Old Bird has taken its music to bars, festivals, coffee shops, music clubs and radio stations all over the Eastern United States. On May 19th Tough Old Bird released “Where The Great Beasts Are Buried,” a new collection of 6 sparse songs recorded at home between June and December 2016.
The core of Tough Old Bird’s sound comes from Matthew Corrigan’s intricate acoustic guitar work, and from the voice and nimble harmonica playing of Nathan Corrigan, who holds a degree in literature and brings a poetic sensibility to the duo’s lyrics. Accents of accordion and waves of electric guitar give Tough Old Bird a sound that is at once modern and ancient.
Savannah Smith only needs thirty seconds of your time to win you over. In a world filled to its brim with would-be young singer-songwriters, Savannah’s vocal prowess, and her absolute mastery of crafting raw and gritty emotion into beautiful melodies, defines her from the crowd in moments. Her stage show all her own; Savannah introduces her music with an irresistible charm, ushering the listener into her world with casual ease before effusing desperate and earnest emotion in each song. Her lyrics darken the bright chords and create a depth in her music that reaches far beyond her years.
