It’s Spring! The perfect time to curl up with a book or ten. Or perhaps you’d rather lie back and listen to your favourite music.

ArtSound’s book and music fair is being held in conjunction with our annual Radiothon and is being held on our open day Sunday 8 November. This will give you the opportunity to stock up on some great treats for your eyes and ears at bargain prices or perhaps pick up a bargain for that elusive stocking filler.

Can’t make it on Sunday? Then come to our special Member’s Only Preview from 4 – 6pm on Saturday 7 November.


FRIDAY NIGHT LIVE! 8PM 2 OCT 2015 - Herd Trio


Founded in 2009, HERD consists of Panu Savolainen (vibes), Mikko Pellinen (bass) and Tuomas Timonen (drums).   Hailing from Helsinki, Finland, the combo ranks among the most potent of the new breed of forward-thinking jazz ensembles. The band has already gained both domestic and international acclaim thanks to their successful debut album “HERD Live!!”, and their energetic stage presence. In July 2011, HERD was awarded the first prize at the prestigious “European Jazz Competition” at Holland’s North Sea Jazz Festival.   We recorded them at their superb 27 July 2015 concert at the Embassy of Finland. 

Produced and presented by Chris Deacon OAM.  FNL is sponsored by B2B, Canberra's leading business and government magazine.
