The Garden Gathering - The Beatles let it be show - Jed Appleton Band - Lasca Dry

Botanical Gardens, Hobart, Hobart

In 1970 The Beatles released their twelfth and final studio album, Let it Be. Immediately hitting number one in the charts and now having sold over 11 million copies around the world, Let it Be is a classic!

With an all-star Tasmanian line-up consisting of Tom Wolfe, Pete Cornelius, Scott Targett, Jethro Pickett, Beau Thomas, Tim Rozemulder, Joe Weller and Louisa Hogue, the band will deliver the Let it Be album in its entirety from start to finish. In addition, they'll tackle tracks from Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, Abbey Road and the 'White Album' for good measure!

Bob Dylan is the greatest songwriter of all time, being the first artist to have a top 40 album in each decade since the 60s including classics such as 'Blowin in the Wind, Like a Rolling Stone & Knockin on Heavens Door'. Jed Appleton, a seasoned troubadour will be able to perform a few of Dylan’s classic hits and will be showcasing songs from his new album ’The Divide’.

Heartfelt, honest, and deceptively simple, Lasca Dry’s songs are direct, emotive and played with haunting vocals and contagious melodies. Lasca sings of life, love, and loss carrying her listeners into new places and other realms.

Free entry for kids under 5.

Adults $39.80 U18 $28.60

The Garden Gathering - Wolfe Brothers, Pete Cornelius Band and Clinton Hutton

Botanical Gardens, Hobart, Hobart

The revered country duo, comprised of brothers Nick and Tom Wolfe, have become renowned over the past few years for their jaw-dropping live shows and slow-but-steady ascent to Australian country music’s upper echelon.

The Wolfe Brothers will be supported by Pete Cornelius. Pete’s style is difficult to describe but is steeped in heartfelt blues, greasy funk & soul with Americana overtones. His authentic sound and original songwriting is unique to Pete and does not disappoint.

Clinton Hutton has supported The Wolfe Brothers at previous gigs, and we are excited to have him join us for this event. Clinton is a singer-guitarist-songwriter-producer Clinton has a strong reputation for being a quality high energy entertainer.
