Sarah Savoy plus the John Lewis Rock'n'Roll Trio
Longtime friend of SummerTyne and part of the Acadian Savoy dynasty, Sarah Savoy brings her unique but traditional Cajun sound to Northern Rock Foundation Hall.
Performing with a four piece band, Sarah Savoy is guaranteed to conjure up images of smoky bars, dangerous men and women, beer and cigarettes, dance and the heady inspirational eras of Louisiana music.
From accordion to guitar to washboard or triangle, Sarah’s vocal style has been compared to that of Patsy Cline, Patti Smith and Wanda Jackson, her musicians are all multi-instrumentalists as well and thoroughly enjoy switching around on stage.
Joining Sarah is the John Lewis Rock’n’Roll Trio. With a guitar sound that runs from Merle Travis to Link Wray, John Lewis is one of the beloved figures of the modern rockabilly scene. This evening John Lewis and his band play music from his back catalogue spanning over 25 years and bring his piercing voice and famous live show to SummerTyne once again.
