At the Saturday Stomp & Holler we celebrate all that is Americana, bringing you performances from musicians that draw upon this rich cannon of roots music in all its forms; gravely blues, foot-stomping folk, rough house Celtic and sweet lonesome old time country, to name but a few.

Expect to hear harmonicas, banjos and fiddles; three point harmonies and one 'man' bands singing popular classics and underground traditions with true grit and soul.

Our feature guest this week is Davey Backyard.

Davey Backyard is one of the other personas of Christchurch Musician David Thorpe - AKA Li'l Chuck, The Harmonica Guy, DG Mitchellthorpe and many more! He is a veteran performer and until recently spent well over a decade in Ian Costello's rollicking Irish combo The Black Velvet Band.

Davey performs fresh interpretations of old classics playing a mix of Blues, Classic Country, Folk, Jazz styles throwing his original material into the mix.

Davey is most comfortable as a one man band, and this performance will showcase his simultaneous use of guitar, harmonica, vocal, stomp and loops.

Davey adds a dollop of good humor and lightheartedness to his performances, creating a warm atmosphere perfect for a session at Blue Smoke.
