Wheel of Experience evokes early New Zealand history and personalities through epic original song.
The songs, which are written and performed by David Ward (Kiss The Fish) Peter Daube (The Crucible) and Dave Khan (Don McGlashan), take you on a journey back in time. The trio move from haunting ballad to wailing sea shanty, blistering bluegrass to pounding blues as they harmonise and play on a vast array of instruments including banjo, fiddle, mandolin and Chinese zhongruan.
Experience the crimes of the Burgess gang, love and betrayal on the Raurimu Spiral, the murder of Joe Kum Yung, the plight of a group of shipwrecked sealers and the legend of archetypal 'westie' Francesco Rodriguez Figuera. Wheel of Experience tells stories full of humour and heart about people trying to carve a new life for themselves in the promised land of New Zealand.
