Following the success of her debut album For The Weary Traveller released on July 31st, Holly Arrowsmith and band will be performing at The Tuning Fork on the 5th September alongside Melbourne based rock'n'roll troubadour Skyscraper Stan and Auckland based storysinger Tom Cunliffe.
Reminiscent of Americana folk greats Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan, Arrowsmith's captivating, earthy voice, will reach into the heart of humanity, and take you on a journey through life's joys and struggles.
Born in the spacious desertscape of Santa Fe, New Mexico and raised in the pristine surroundings of Queenstown, Holly’s songs encompass a reverence for nature.
At just 21 years old, Holly has already showcased The New Zealand Country Music Awards, Rhythm And Alps and Rhythm and Vines. Last year she delivered a TEDx talk on ‘Honest Music’, and has opened for internationally acclaimed folk artist Rodriguez.
Tickets for The Tuning Fork show are now available from Ticketmaster or ph 0800 111 999.
'A lovely voice and an ancient script add up to a stunning folk interpretation of New Zealand'. James Belfield, NZ Listener
'There’s something about Arrowsmith’s presence that is a different kind of alchemy altogether – in the unusual quality of her delivery and her enchanting voice, which swings between being light and free, before turning into a growl or lilting into a sweet head voice.' Fraser Browne, Second-hand News
