About
Ken Carlson attended Cornish College of the Arts, and has been teaching and performing music in Seattle for 25 years. When he met Trish Savage, a singer-songwriter and graduate of Indiana University, the musical chemistry was immediate and apparent. They have a unique sound that combines Ken's flamenco guitar pieces with Trish's vocals and percussion, occasionally both playing guitar and singing harmonies. They play a number of swing and bossa nova jazz standards, throwing in reggae, classic rock, soul, blues, and original tunes if the evening calls for it. They are happy to show up as a duo, or can arrive as a trio, quartet, or 8 piece band depending on the needs of the client. (Instrumentation not limited to tasteful horns, upright bass, drums, congas...)


Savage Carlson performs regularly as a duo in the downtown Seattle hotel scene, as well as at wineries, weddings, corporate events, private parties, and occasional local neighborhood haunts. Will travel!

They were super professional and very talented! They performed at a work event in an art gallery space, and we received many compliments from guests about what a great addition they were. Very accommodating and friendly, will definitely book again!

We are so happy we chose Savage Carlson for our wedding! They did everything so well! Acoustic guitar processional music was lovely. They were kind enough to help us with the audio for the ceremony and reception toasts. Their jazz during the cocktail hour was a fabulous mood setter. Their dance music was so much fun and they learned several special songs for us, including a German language polka for our western Kansas wedding march. Our dance floor was packed all night! After the band was formally done, Trish DJ'ed for us. Overall, we just cannot recommend Savage Carlson highly enough - they were so easy to work with, accommodating, versatile and fun! Thanks!
