Gig Information

As part of their epic Bamboozled Brain-box Hearts Growin Tour 2020” Archer and Flora will play an evening at the glorious Orokonui Ecosanctuary, in support of Kaka research. 7:30pm - 9:30pm.

This show is raising funds for Kaka research at Orokonui Ecosanctuary. Tickets can be purchased here :

To support the establishment of a robust South Island Kaka population outside of Orokonui Ecosanctuary research is required to understand where the Kaka are going, their behaviour, genetics of their population and threats to their survival. This research aims to engage and empower the wider community with knowledge and skills to protect these magnificent birds outside of the safety of the fence

Archer (Aus) the ill-fated explorer of the interior recesses of the embattled brain-box, returns to New Zealand, the land of the birds to re-learn the art of dreaming. Songs will be sung, ideas will be exchanged, brains will be bamboozled and hearts will grow.

Archer is a curious man. He can pull a song out of the depths of the earth and send it flying into outer space. You might find him in the middle of nowhere lying under a rock writing a song about a lizard or you might find him singing at the world famous montreal jazz festival, or waltzing with a 93 year old woman or throwing kangaroo poo at people, in the interests of science and humanity. He is an international treasure, a people's poet.
Archer has toured extensively through Australia, Canada and New Zealand playing festivals such as: Barunga, Montreal Jazz Festival, Quebec Festival, Ottawa Blues Fest, Queenscliff, Golden Plains, Woodford, Tamworth, Bello Winter Fest, Dashville Skyline, Maldon Folk Festival, Canterbury Folk Festival and performing alongside many of the stars of today including: Martha Wainwright, Aldous Harding, Larkin Poe, CW Stoneking, Calexico, Marlon Williams, Pokey la Farge, Mojo Juju, The Cat Empire, Paul Kelly among others.

Touring New Zealand January/ February 2020 Archer will be joined by New Zealand’s old time fiddler Flora Knight (previously of The Eastern, Flora Knight and Sean Donald), recently returned from a sojourn in Oklahoma, USA, soaking in the intricacies of traditional American music and craft, Flora is back touring New Zealand with a bounty of new tunes and stories.
