Eastcoaster Jazz Festival
Jazz has been a part of the East Coast cultural life since 1984, when the Suncoast Jazz Festival kicked off in St Helens. Among the guest artists who have appeared at the festival in the past are Bob Barnard, Alex Hutchinson, Paul Furniss, Erie Holroyd, Tom Baker and well-known Tasmanian jazz musician lan Pearce.
In 2008, the Eastcoaster was launched and in 2009 will take place on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th October 2009 at St Helens. Information regarding this event will be available on the Hobart Jazz Club website from the 1st April 2009. Update: Alas, the Eastcoaster will be held in 2009 at the Louisville Resort at Orford.
A relaxing weekend alternating between this event and the beach would be as close as I could get to perfection ...
