What's on in the Southern Tablelands, November 9-17

What's on: Cool tunes, top drops, and a field day out

Yazz Fest

  • Saturday, November 9 at Yass Soldiers Memorial Hall from 3pm to 6pm. Tickets: $35 on Eventbrite.

Yazz Fest, the wine festival hosted by Yazzbar, is back with top drops, amazing food and live music. Grab a glass and explore 17 wineries, two distilleries and a brewery from the world-famous Canberra District. Now in its third year, Yazz Fest pops the spotlight on award-winning producers such as Sholto Wines and McKellar Ridge and food from hatted restaurant Clementine for the first time. The ticket includes a glass, a bag big enough to hold four bottles (think Christmas presents!), a booklet for tasting notes and contact details for all wineries. For out of area visitors, there is a return bus from Canberra and Murrumbateman.

Psycho Zydeco

  • Sunday, November 10, Tattersalls Hotel, Goulburn from 4pm to 7pm. Entry is free.

Psycho Zydeco has been one of the most successful Australian roots-based bands for more than 25 years. With numerous tours, festivals and gigs throughout Australia and Europe, as well as four critically acclaimed albums, the band is enjoying performing live now more than ever. The band has taken the stage with Zydeco legends Rockin' Dopsie and Terrance Simien in the past. Both of these giants of the deep south have praised the band for capturing a true Zydeco sound that has an Australian kick and flavour. The band's earthy blend of traditional Cajun, Blues and Swamp music produce a sound that is Psycho Zydeco.
