The Aupouri Forest in the Far North of New Zealand is what inspired Neil’s first song, Aupori Angel. 25 years later, Neil and his friends are asked to go back for “one last ride”.
Neil writes lyrics and music based on experiences in life, and the events that happen around. Here’s an extra from “The Last Ride”, the Country Calendar episode featuring Neil Hersey and friends.
They were a bit short on time, but Neil gave a little insight into the upcoming Country Calender episode, along with a live performance at the end of the show.
Neil will be performing Aupouri Angel plus a brand new track not available on any of his albums.
Catch Good Morning Thursday September 13 (2012) on TV1, around 11:30am.
When self-confessed cowboy Neil Hersey was asked to return to Northland’s Aupouri Forest to count wild horses, he jumped at the chance.
Twenty-five years ago, Neil was in a group that acted as guardians of the Aupouri’s famous wild horses, which are descended from animals believed to have been brought to New Zealand in the 1800s.
The cowboys would chase the wild herd through the forest onto Ninety Mile Beach, catch the best horses, break them in and use them for mustering in Northland.
Learn more about where Neil’s music began, amongst the wild horses and a classic New Zealand environment – the Far North’s Aupouri Forest.
Catch “The Last Ride”, Country Calander on TV1, 7pm September 15 2012.
Neil Hersey featured in a Northern Advocate rural news article.
