Kick-off the festival with us and witness this special event unfold with some thrilling Jazz improvisations with bass player, Colescott Rubin, and "Ears of steel" Saxophone player, John Lindsay. Poet, Emily Manice, will present a range of her works and Alastair Dacey will showcase his paintings and talk about the contrast between improvisation and form in visual arts. To round up the senses we are offering local wine by Greenvale Vinyard as well as hors d'oeuvres.
