Ex-pat Kiwis The Pioneers have wowed audiences in Britain with their multi media portrayal of their ancestors’ journeys to New Zealand. Now, they’re about to repeat that journey themselves, bringing their acclaimed show to this country.

Using original acoustic music, texts by leading New Zealand poets, story telling and character portrayal, The Pioneers tell the stories of three of their ancestors who travelled from England and Ireland to a very different New Zealand from the one they had imagined.

Set against a backdrop of stunning New Zealand scenery and rarely viewed archival images, this powerful poignant show features the combined talents of vocalist Angeline Conaghan, Ben Brewer on guitar and David Leahy on double bass. Interweaving the stories they heard growing up in New Zealand with poetry and song, the trio brings to life the experiences of early European settlers attempting to create a place they could call home.
