Sam Hunt returns to Hallertau, Saturday, April 11.

New Zealand's best-loved poet and most famed road-song raconteur, Sam Hunt, announces a return to Hallertau for a very special solo performance almost a year to the day since his raved about 2014 performance at the famed Brewery.

Sam was born at Castor Bay, Auckland in 1946. These days, home-base is Kaipara Harbour - “five/ gunshots from humanity”.

As well as doing his widely acclaimed solo shows, Mr Hunt has worked with various musicians –The Warratahs, Split Enz, Gareth Farr, NZSO - to name but a few.

In 2009, he collaborated with David Kilgour & The Heavy 8s, producing the LP “Falling Debris”. More recently, they teamed up again – this time SH providing lyrics & lead vocals for a new long player, entitled “The 9th” – due out May 2015.

In 1986, Sam was awarded a QSM; in 2010, a Companion of the NZ Order of Merit (CNZM). He was further festooned in 2012 with the Prime Minister’s Poetry Award. All honours were for “his services to poetry”.

Its a rare solo show - go and see this spellbinding, inimitable performer if you’ve seen him hundreds of times before - or never ever in your life. You go to see Sam Hunt perform his road-songs, because this is what he does, this is who he is. He is, in that very sense, poetry itself. In his own words, and with his own maxim:

“Tell the story, tell it true - charm it crazy.”

Sam Hunt, live at Hallertau, Saturday, April 11, 5pm.
with special guest appearance by Ed Castelow from Dictaphone Blues in a rare solo set.
