Gig Information

Join American songwriter Zach Winters & New Zealand Songbird Holly Arrowsmith on their pacific tour.

A beautiful evening of folk music, set in Te Awamutu's famous music venue- Walton Street.


Paste Magazine calls Zach Winters’ songs “perfect for a hushed afternoon in the season that bears his name.” The new 15-song album, Monarch, is ruminating and warm, with strings and pianos carrying forward Winters’ unique brand of folk.

In 2015, Winters has been on tour throughout the US, musically migrating with his family and playing shows with Josh Garrels, Will Reagan, A Boy & His Kite, and Aaron Strumpel. October will see him traveling to the Southern Hemisphere to join Holly Arrowsmith for shows throughout Australia & New Zealand.

He has had the honor to sing for Syrian refugees, laboring mothers, orphans in Mexico, and his friends, neighbors and family. He & his family reside on the Great Plains.


'Holly Arrowsmith is the new name in folk worth keeping your eye on.

This Southern songstress has been turning heads all over the world, with her acoustically driven stirring sound, poetic, thought provoking lyrics, and a distinctively haunting voice.

According to The Source: This is the kind of C&W meets folk that strips everything but the honesty away, and what you're left with will leave you trembling.”

Born in the desert city of Santa Fe, New Mexico, Arrowsmith's nostalgic style echoes Americana- Folk legends, Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell. Raised in the mountain valleys of New Zealand, it's no wonder her songs capture a reverence for nature.

At just 21 years old, Holly has already showcased The New Zealand Country Music Awards, South Island festival Rhythm And Alps, and appeared at Rhythm and Vines.

Last year she delivered a TEDx talk on ‘Honest Music’, and has opened for internationally acclaimed folk artist Rodriguez, captivating crowds with songs from her EP 'The River’.

Recorded in a grass roots studio, nestled in the Mountains of Queenstown, New Zealand- Holly Arrowsmith’s debut album ‘For The Weary Traveller ’ was released July 31st to critical acclaim.

'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
