THE 68th Australian Jazz Convention in Goulburn, NSW is barely over, and planning for the 69th is already underway!!
The fair City of Swan Hill on the Murray River is about to take its maiden voyage into AJC music and madness, and it looks like a perfect location. Small enough to keep the intimate nature of the Convention, wonderful surroundings with the river and all its delights, history in the Pioneer Village, great produce, outdoor activities galore, and even the Giant Murray Cod!
More details as they come to hand -let the dust settle from the 68th first! But the news is all good after last year’s hiccup (hiccough?) when Goulburn came to the rescue of our grand old institution.
By the way, I’ve heard from a number of Conventioneers that they have already booked their accommodation in Swan Hill, so if you’re planning to go, you can’t begin too soon.
ONYA SWAN HILL!
