Sam Hunt: Purple Balloon and Other Stories


I saw the Sam Hunt doco at the cinema yesterday lunchtime. It’s part of the New Zealand Film Festival. There’s something rather rebellious about going to the cinema in the daytime I think. Although Sam says that his poems are to be performed as opposed to simply read, I’m still putting one of his books on my Christmas list.

    I saw Sam Hunt perform when I was at high school. I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so hard! He is an amazing performer. If you can imagine his raspy, lilting tone, and particular phrasing, you can have him reading along with you. You are a bit of a star too! Love photo in the Sunday Star Times. XXX

  3. Thank you Shiree. Mr Tread Softly will freely admit that present buying isn’t one of his strong points so he generally follows my gift list to a T!!!

  4. Hi Fiona, How wonderful that you’ve seen Sam perform live. What a treat! Glad you spotted the photo in the Sunday press. Didn’t Trumpet look the bees knees?! Hope that all is well in Christchurch.
