Davey Backyard

Hi I'm David Thorpe, Aka Li'l Chuck The One Man Skiffle Machine, Davey Backyard, The Skeatles, The Harmonica Guy, The Old Fashioned Singalong, etc... yep, it gets a bit complicated but essentially, I am one guy, with a ton of different music and creative projects and a brain like a firework display.

Davey Backyard is my 'Barroom singer' persona. in my decades of performing, I have played in hundreds of bars, and a tons of weddings & events. I lean heavily in the genres of Country, folk, Blues and 50's 60's 70's Classics.

Based in Christchurch New Zealand since 2003, I started Backyard Music in the UK 1998. Backyard music is an ethos, I like to keep things in the 'backyard' by keeping it local, keeping the focus on community & drawing on the local talent around me. New Zealand made.
