As part of the Auckland Heritage Festival Rachel Dawick (www.racheldawick.com) brings you her musical tales of NZ Pioneer Women for two special one off shows with full band to celebrate the launch of her new album and book “The Boundary Riders”. The premiere will take place on 2nd October at 8pm at The Vic Theatre in Devonport (Tickets available at http://www.thevic.co.nz) with the second show on the 11th October at Whangateau Hall at 5pm (Tickets available at EventFinda)
‘The Boundary Riders’ show 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 are of conquests, survival, persistence, and the merging of peoples and cultures from far distant lands into the birth of New Zealand as we know her today. The music like the characters moves across the genres adding to the musical landscape of the stories as our narrator unfolds their tales in one magical journey.
