Samuel R. Saffery – Hard Yards Tour, Napier


Samuel R. Saffery is putting in the hard yards to take his music on the road, wandering-minstrel style, on foot.

In late February he will grab his guitar, slip on his boots and take the first steps of this 300 kilometre journey, setting off from Hawke’s Bay and winding his way down the motu. By late March, after calling in at little towns, villages and hamlets along the way, he will finally arrive in Wellington.

Come along and be a part of this journey, join the balladeer at your local for an evening of songs and a cup or two of good cheer.

About Samuel R. Saffery:

From rural Hawke’s Bay in New Zealand to the subways and bodegas of New York, Samuel R. Saffery’s musical journey is unquestionably linked to place and movement.

Blending indie folk, alternative rock, and classical influences, his songs are delivered with a distinctive, melodic voice, as haunting as it is sweet.

Honest and gutsy lyricism, a commitment to simplicity, and a willingness to connect, combine to give listeners the sense they are sharing in a secret that might not be retold.

Saffery is a member of Indie folk duos Bird Courage and Lucide. His solo music explores themes of identity, the subconscious world, human beings’ sense of place and their daily connections with one another.
