Holly Arrowsmith (NZ)
Sun 26th April
Tickets: €10 (+booking)
Born in the heart of the American desert, in Santa Fe, New Mexico and raised in the mountains of Southern New Zealand, Multi Award-Winning Songwriter Holly Arrowsmith is a strong forerunner in New Zealand’s current Folk Revivalist movement. With sound comparisons drawn to Emmylou Harris, Joni Mitchell and Nick Drake, Holly delves into the earnest matters of life- wrapped in metaphors of nature and the soothing landscapes that raised her.
Her powerful solo performance has carried her from home in New Zealand- to the far reaches of North America, Australia and beyond. However, this Spring Holly Arrowsmith will make her much anticipated debut in the UK and Europe.
Known not only for her exquisite songwriting but also her sense of humour and authentic stage presence- Holly has supported the likes of Sixto Rodriguez, Patty Griffin, Willie Watson, CW Stoneking, Jessica Pratt, Nadia Reid and Tiny Ruins. She has released two critically acclaimed records- ‘For The Weary Traveller’ and ‘A Dawn I Remember.’ In 2016 Holly received the TUI Folk Album Of The Year and was recently awarded the APRA Country Song of the Year 2019 for her powerful track ‘Slow Train Creek’, penned in the Rockies of Colorado.
