Saturday 12th December, 2020
3:45 for 4:00pm until 6:00 pm

The THFE will take you on a wonderful musical journey with a selection of lively, vibrant, but sometimes moody and atmospheric traditional and contemporary Tasmanian tunes at Bright Eyes this coming Saturday afternoon from 4-6pm! Look out for masses of fiddles, banjos, cello, mandolin and double bass!

What a great way to while away the last hours of a lazy, sunny, summer Saturday afternoon, down on the docks, in the comfort of Bright Eyes Cafe. Choose from a wide range of snacks and beverages – hot or cold!

Please be there about 3:45 to sign in. You can just turn up on Saturday, but booking a seat through or Bright Eyes Cafe on Facebook will make entry quicker as Christine will have your details and can guarantee a seat for you!

Thank you Bright Eyes Cafe for supporting live music in Hobart!
