The daisy wheel (also known as a 'hexafoil') is a compass-drawn circle with six petals within it. The symbol seems to have originated as a solar icon.

Daisy wheels have been found etched into mantlepieces, door frames, window frames and furniture for centuries in Britain and more recently, in Australia. A folk superstition or ritual without any recorded written or oral explanation, scholars now agree that the daisy wheel symbol served the purpose of protecting a household by warding away bad spirits and dispelling ‘darkness’.

DAISYWHEEL is a lyrical voyage from the past through to the uneasy times in which we live; the sound of history, struggle & resilience in song.

It’s also the name of the recently released and highly anticipated first solo album from one of Australia’s most respected folk singers, Ruth Hazleton. A multi-award-winning musician, singer and songwriter, Ruth has toured nationally and internationally in a career spanning twenty-five years. Over this time, she has performed and recorded with iconic musicians from all over the globe including Andy Irvine, Nancy Kerr and Bruce Molsky.

DAISYWHEEL is a stunning new sound brimming with originality and something to say.

“Whether a traditional song or a song of her own making, Ruth approaches her material with great understanding. Deeply concerned with the political and social, her convictions are intrinsic to the passion behind her music - evident in the strength of her music and her voice”. ~ Andy Irvine (Ireland) ... more
