Fredericksburg Songwriters' Showcase Tanya Savory

"What makes Tanya Savory's Rounder debut such a fine album-In many ways as refreshing as Iris Dement's Infamous Angel or Gillian Welch's Revival-is the unfailing intelligence and attentiveness of her songwriting . . . Savory is literate, but without pretension; her landscapes and characters are vivid, almost documentary, and reveal a wisdom that comes with time ... in her songs, tenderness and toughness do not cancel each other out: They flow together from the deeply felt and generously observed life running through every song.(-NO DEPRESSION, JULY/AUG. 1999)

Rounder/Philo recording artist Tanya Savory has gained national recognition as a top-notch performer and songwriter whose music is not easily pigeonholed into one specific genre. Bluegrass and country fans find as much to appreciate in Tanya's music as do contemporary folk audiences. The ability to overlap genres and audiences is simply based in the broad appeal of Tanya's songwriting; a conversational, down-to-earth style that prompted the Nashville Scene to describe her new Rounder CD Town to Town as"... a folk country gem, exploring the nooks and crannies of small-town life with gutsy honesty and a spiritual backbone."

Touring nationally for five years with piano/percussion accompanist Kim House, Tanya's live show provides the unique combination of guitar with piano, which stands out on the heavily solo guitar-based singer/songwriter circuit. For select dates, Tanya tours with a full band that adds fiddle/mandolin and upright bass.
