Elements of Style Duo


Rick and Jamie

Elements of Style Duo
Rick Palkovic, guitar and mandolin; Jamie Knapp, guitars and bass

Playing instrumental duets, the Elements of Style Duo embraces music from South America, Europe, and the Great American Songbook. With their hearts as their guide, the duo ventures from Celtic classics to Cole Porter, with stops along the way for Brazilian choro, bossa nova, and straight-ahead jazz. Their music, flowing from vibrant to pensive and back again, makes the perfect backdrop for engaging conversation.

We are based in Northern California
