"The Boundary Riders is an invaluable body of work that traverses genres and captures the untold stories of Kiwi pioneer women..” NZ Herald September 2014

Rachel Dawick (www.racheldawick.com) gives her final concert of her summer tour in NZ at Paekakariki Hall on Friday 19th February at Paekakariki Memorial Hall, before heading to the UK where her latest album “The Boundary Riders” (Finalist for Best NZ Folk Album 2015) is to showcased as part of the BEAM Festival (New Musical Theatre Work) in London on March 8th and 9th 2016.

Following two successful shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August this year and the previous launch and tour of the album/book released in New Zealand on September 19th 2014 celebrating NZ Women’s Vote Day Rachel will be presenting an evening of folk music from across her albums including her recent tales of the NZ Pioneer Women.

‘The Boundary Riders’ follows the journey of a range of infamous characters whose names largely unknown in our history pages reveal stories that would slip easily into any Wild West Adventure Book. From prostitutes to missionary wives, goldminers to magicians, these beguiling tales of conquests, survival, persistence, and the merging of peoples and cultures from far distant lands have all given birth to New Zealand as we know her today.

The historic trail began over four years ago when armed with a grant from Creative NZ Rachel Dawick embarked on 40 day solo tour across the country performing, collecting and digging up stories of women in 1800’s NZ. She had originally returned to NZ to find songs written by women about women (in the 1800s) and realizing that these apart from a couple of parlor songs didn’t exist she decided to try and find their stories and turn these into songs to add into the vast array of songs written by men over this time and thereby filling a gap in our folk song history.

These songs cross the folk range from blues to country to gospel to a more theatrical magical world. Don't miss this final concert.

Doors open at 7pm and show starts at 7.30pm - the new book with cd enclosed will be available to purchase ($40) as will her previous releases ($15). Last chance to purchase before heading overseas.
