Rachel Dawick

From her launch of country blues album “Ed’s Bar and Grill” at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2009, Rachel Dawick has enjoyed international success with two collaborative songs released in Greece with EMI (“Peeling Apples” Athena Andreadis – release 2011 in the UK) and the UK (“Somewhere to Jump” Aberfeldy). Rachel's previous album ‘The Boundary Riders’ was a historic research project on the working class women who left the UK for NZ in the 1800s - this was also a book and cd and was finalist for the NZ Tui Award for Best Folk Album and chosen as one of 40 new works in the first BEAM (British Emerging Musical Theatre Shows) Conference in London. Originally from New Zealand, Rachel has been playing in festivals and clubs across NZ and the UK for over 12 years working with Susan Grant and Marise Clark as ‘Ruby Blue’, and UK musicians Nick Lewis, Roy Dodds, Kevin McGuire, Andy May, Pat McGarvey and Wil Molleson. Rachel's previous background in Arts Education in the UK and NZ as well as two years spent working in Nepal with VSO have all contributed to a rich tapestry of experiences that come together and develop through her music.
