Festival Description

The festival was postponed for 2011 due to the devastating earthquake of February 2011 until further notice. The program of events runs the gamut of Jazz styles and flavours and the change of Festival timing from winter to autumn has provided us with the opportunity to introduce a first for the Festival—Jazz Alley. More than 60 national and local Jazz artists are featured at the Festival. International headliners have included Grammy award winning Norah Jones, Irish Jazz singer Mary Coughlan and Australia’s Jazz great James Morrison. Other overseas artists include Australian Jazz violinist George Washingmachine, American blues guitarist Kristina Olsen and Jazz guitarist Jack Wilkins. The diverse event schedule is sure to keep every Jazz fan entertained. From Jazz in the Hall, Jazz for Lunch, Jazz Alley, Jazz on Film to our Jazz Karaoke hour.

Festival Dates November 5 - 6, 2011
