STOMPING NICK JACKMAN AT THE STOMP & HOLLER

Venue
Blue Smoke
Time
08:30 pm

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 3rd December we present ‘Stomping Nick Jackman’, a one-man-band from Lyttelton, New Zealand, who fuses primitive garage punk with blues and Appalachian folk. His sound has been described as “pounding rhythms, searing blasts of harmonica, and a gutsy roar that reach back decades beyond the last fad.”

Stomping Nick sings and plays harmonica, guitar and drums all at the same time, the old school way, without the aid of loop pedals, backing tracks, or any of those other fancy tricks. The harmonica is Nick’s weapon of choice and a number of influences shape his harmonica style. As well as the blues harp masters such as Little Walter and Sonny Boy Williamson, other influences as diverse as bluegrass fiddle and Jimi Hendrix can be heard when Stomping Nick gets his jaw swinging. Underpinning the harmonica, Nick’s feet and hands provide a solid rumble of drums and growling guitar to get the people in the groove, while he sings, amongs other things, songs about trains and train wrecks, magic whiskey, getting high, sinking low, and dancing with the devil.
