Enjoy showcase of music while raising funds for charity
The beautiful vineyards of Dingo Creek are going to howl with the sound of blue roots at the 2012 Jazz and Blues Festival this October. The Traveston event, running October 19-21, is well known for its down-to-earth vibe and world class calibre of musicians. This long weekend of music has grown from a humble, local event so something you'll probably hear people overseas talking about.

The entertainment, as always, promises to top anything that's come before. New organiser, the Gympie Rotary Club, have even extended the program to include music on the Friday night. Some of the highlights on this year's program are James Morrison, Wendy Matthews, Mark Easton, Lil Fi, Cousin Alice, Barry Charles, Band of Blue and the Zephyr Project. The program has been well organised this year. With only two stages and several artists performing more than once, chances are you'll get to see everyone should you hang around the entire three days.

Camping options are available if you want to stay around for the full three days/pictures from dingocreek.com.au

Camping is an option you should consider if you want to make the most of your long weekend away. On-site camping is free to anyone with a three day pass but limited so check it out before it's too late. If they sell out, the Cobb & Co Nine Mile Camping Grounds at Tandur and the Boulder Creek Holiday Centre at Gympie are not too far away.

All proceeds made from by new organisers Gympie Rotary will be passed on to SIDS and Kids, The Dingo Creek Wine, Jazz and Blue Festival began in 2002 to commemorate what would have been the 21st birthday of Dingo Creek owners David and Marg's daughter Rachael, who died from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.

With the money going to a more than worthy cause and the music to be world class, anyone with a taste for the jazz and blues should make their way down for at least one day over the long weekend.
