Adrian Jackson was artistic director of the Wangaratta Festival of Jazz and Blues for its first 27 years.  He has now put pen to paper to produce the definitive book about the festival’s first 30 years.

Written  in conjunction with his sister, journalist Andra Jackson, the book contains memories of so many amazing artists who have performed over the years, history about getting the festival off the ground, and many pictures and anecdotes – as well as the complete list of artists for each year.

Adrian chatted with David Moyle about some of his festival memories, and the work involved in producing the book – as well as the crowdfunding needed to get the book to the printers.
