As her album Brightly Painted One was being released in New Zealand, Tiny Ruinsâ€™ Hollie Fullbrook was opening the European leg of Neil Finnâ€™s world tour, and playing cello in his backing band each evening. At the same time she was preparing for her own headline shows.
Radio New Zealand sent Hollie away with a portable recorder to capture the sounds and stresses of European touring, both with a top-tier band in a tour bus, and as a D.I.Y. up-and-comer on a budget. This half hour documentary includes Neil and the band on and off stage plus some of his most dedicated fans.
