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 traditionals with true grit and soul.

On Saturday the 19th of November our featured evening guests are Lyttelton stalwart Al Park and his cohort Elmore Jones.

Park and Jones are a duo playing music from across the decades. Al Park has joined Elmore Jones, a young guitarist with a beautiful style, somewhat reminiscent of George Harrison. Son of well known guitarist, Phil Jones, Elmore has picked up the blues and country stylings of his Dad but has given them his own, tasteful touch.

Their repertoire spans the great songwriters from across the decades- Lennon/McCartney, Dylan, Neil Young, Paul Simon, Steve Earle, Elton John, Johnny Cash, Tom Petty – but what makes the Al and Elmore duo is the “other” songs they play. Little gems that people know but don’t get to hear often. “Christchurch woman” by Justin Towns Earle; “Red cadillac and a black moustache”, by Warren Smith; “Waterloo sunset”, by the Kinks;”Streets of Baltimore”, by Gram Parsons; to name a few.

Always good at judging the mood of the audience, Al and Elmore can tailor their songs to suit. Party when the room wants to party, lay back and create a mood when people need to relax. It should be noted that as a duo they have no backing tracks instead they rely on the sound of two guitars, two voices, one harmonica and the occasional tambourine.
