Thanks to everyone who came to our Annual General Meeting last night and for your ongoing support of Music Tasmania.
We celebrated in Hobart at Quartermasters Arms with live music from Anı Lou, James Nutting (Black Hole Sugar) and Emma Waters (EWAH). In Launceston, there were good times at Bakers Lane with Hurricane Youth, Pop Noi'Sop and Elliot Courtnage.
The 2017/18 Board Members were also announced. Stepping down from the Board this year are David Wedd, Brad Harbeck and Jed Appleton.
