If there’s just a few things we at the Ninch enjoy, it’s a good time, great places to wine and dine, and the best of the local music scene. From 11 – 14 June, the Mornington Winter Music Festival is set to incorporate all of those things and more.
Held annually on the Queen’s Birthday Weekend, Mornington Main Street will become a vista of entertainment to showcase a diverse mix of Jazz, Blues, Soul and other genres.
There’s something for everyone – with a range of ticketed gigs as well as free performances held over the course of the weekend. If you prefer hearing the blissful blend of bass and sax over a glass of mulled wine, you can head to one of the many partaking cafes or restaurants. Or if wandering the wintry streets is more your style, you’ll be spoilt for choice with a selection of local buskers.
Singer-songwriter, trumpeter and composer Roscoe James Irwin (think the Cat Empire and The Bamboos) is one such artist set to perform. Presenting a set of original works titled ‘Dark Heart’, you can catch him at the picturesque Beleura House on June 11. Tickets can be found here.
There really has never been a better time to support the local music and restaurant scene. So get down, get boogying, and enjoy some oh-so-smooth Jazz.
