Happy Birthday Sam Hunt

Radio NZ has produced a small video of Sam Hunt reading a few poems  from his new collection, Salt River Songs. It is a perfect snap shot of Sam at home in the Kaipara, and of the lyrical joy of his poetry. Altogether mesmerising.

h a p p y   b i r t h d a y  S a m Hunt, you are our poetry icon extraordinaire, and poetry in New Zealand would not be the same without you. We grew up with Sam-Hunt poems sizzling and simmering in our blood.

    I really enjoyed the video, on Sam’s birthday, as well as the longer interview with Wallace Chapman. It was just mesmerizing to listen to his stories and astounding mental bank of poems. I especially enjoyed him reciting Seamus Heaney’s “Follower” – a great poem.
