Rachel Dawick, Thursday 23 May

Rachel Dawick Sneak Preview Concert 

Roseneath School Hall, Maida Vale Road,  Thursday 23 May, 7.30 pm

Rachel Dawick, Tui Award Finalist 2015, moves from her work of the women settlers to two new albums to be released in 2019 and 2020. The first, ‘Gold Pan Alley’, is the tale of the travelling troupes who worked the gold rush towns in NZ from 1860-1890. The second, ‘London Working, London Poor’, takes us back to the streets of East London and the array of colourful characters in Henry Mayhew’s work – from the acrobat to the crossing sweeper. A wee sneak preview of the two new albums and the stories behind them.

Support acts are Paddy Burgin and Makaira Waugh,  two very skilled musicians and luthiers. Paddy will most likely entertain us with some of his self-penned songs. Expect the unexpected from Makaira – it may very well involve you.

 

Ticket Price:  $15 ($10 members). Supper provided.
