Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand
Wednesday 22nd August 2018
Born in the heart of the American desert, in Santa Fe, New Mexico and raised in the mountains of Southern New Zealand,
HOLLY ARROWSMITH is a singer and songwriter on the rise locally and internationally, a strong forerunner in New Zealand’s current folk revivalist movement.
Arrowsmith’s first album ‘For The Weary Traveller’ received the VNZMA Tui Award for ‘Best Folk Album of 2016’, and with it she supported Sixto Rodrigues, Jessica Pratt, Tiny Ruins, Nadia Reid and toured with Fly My Pretties.
A Dawn I Remember’ Arrowsmith’s second full length album was crowdfunded and released June 22nd 2018.
‘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
