Melbourne musician Ruth Hazleton is sharing her new work Daisywheel in Tasmania.
One of Australia’s most highly regarded folk singers, Hazleton is a multi-award-winning instrumentalist, singer and songwriter.
Her debut solo album Daisywheel was recently nominated for ‘Best Folk Album 2020’ at the Music Victoria Awards and has been described as “…compelling and intimately fierce” by Living Tradition – UK.
You can read a review of the album at Listening Through The Lens.
Daisywheel is a lyrical voyage of history, struggle & resilience in song; a confluence of ancient and contemporary and a cross-cultural zeitgeist. Part traditional and part contemporary, the repertoire incorporates the many influences that have shaped Ruth’s musicianship over her 25-year career. There are flavours of Celtic trad, old-time American, Eastern European and Middle Eastern music, folk revival and folk-rock.
On her Tasmanian tour, Ruth (banjo and guitar) will be joined by Melbourne musician Fiona Steele (guitar and vocals – centre), and Tasmania’s own Luke Plumb (mandolin and bouzouki).
