As heard on Radio NZ live with Kim Hill and Jim Sullivan (HIstory) and the Upbeat Programme National Radio.

Rachel Dawick (www.racheldawick.com) brings you her musical tales of NZ Pioneer Women in an exciting pre-release nationwide show with internationally acclaimed musician Jon Sanders (www.jon-sanders.com).

‘The Boundary Riders’ tour follows the journey of a range of infamous characters whose names are largely unknown in our history pages, yet whose stories would slip easily into any Wild West adventure book. From prostitutes to missionary wives and gold miners 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 historic trail began over two years ago when, armed with a grant from Creative NZ, Rachel embarked on a 40-date solo tour across the country digging up, collecting and performing stories of women in 1800s NZ. A second further collection tested her own boundaries as she cycled the length of NZ from Cape Reinga to Bluff with only a ukulele and a one-person tent to her name and 2000km to travel. With many stories shared on the road, and a final concert in Christchurch held for Women’s Refuge and celebrating the end of the journey, she finally settled down and began the long process of putting the information together and writing the songs.

These songs will be shared as part of a pre-album release tour. This is a special chance to hear stories that are not present in our history books but which begin to unravel a new past. ‘The Boundary Riders Part 1: A Quiet Revolution’ will be officially released in the UK and in NZ on September 19th, 2013 with an accompanying book giving you further insight into the stories and ‘on the road’ tales from their collection. This is the first of two albums, this one bringing us the tales from the early 1800s until 1892 – the year preceding the women’s vote. To celebrate the songs and to whet your appetite, a special album entitled 'Dirty Linen' has been put together for the tour, featuring two of the women’s songs along with some special ‘merchandise’ only available at one of the concerts.

Doors open at 7pm. Tickets $15 at the door or $15 here.
