Musician touring on foot from Puketapu to Wellington

From Nights, 10:50 pm on 20 February 2024

Being a musician in New Zealand often means finding creative ways to get your music out to the masses.

Indie musician Samuel R. Saffery is doing exactly that. 

At the end of this month he will set off on a 300 kilometer journey from Puketapu in Hawkes Bay all the way down to Wellington on foot, and he's hoping to play at as many venues as possible along the way.

He joins Emile Donovan.

Samuel wears black sunglasses and carries a wheelbarrow with an acoustic guitar down a residential road.
