The trio of Rachel Thoms, Lachlan Coventry and James Le Fevre come together once again for a special Sunday performance at Mount Majura Vineyard. The playful, interactive nature of the trio ensures an entertaining performance showcasing both the individual and ensemble musicianship of these seasoned players. The group will be performing a mix of jazz standards from the great American Song Book encompassing composers such as George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Miles Davis and Irvin Berlin. There’s likely to be a few obscure tunes and some originals from the pen of Thoms. Enjoy a cheese plate, whilst you sip award winning wine, and listen to some classic Jazz. Begins at 12.30pm - 3.30pm.

The Canberra Comedy Festival closed on Saturday night after a stellar week of stand-up, singing and skits that featured acts like Peter Helliar, Cal Wilson and Jason Byrne. One of the last performers to take the stage for the festival was Dave Thornton – most recognisable from his appearances on Channel 10’s ‘The Project”. Although relatively unknown compared to some of the headline acts, he’s a comic on the rise that ticks all the right boxes.
