The Eastern is a string band that roars like a punk band, swings like a gospel band, drinks like a country band, hopes like folk singers, and wants to slow dance and stand on tables all at the same time.

Its country, folk, rock mix has seen it support Steve Earle, and Fleetwood Mac at the Bowl of Brooklands.

The Lyttleton band had Butlers Reef rocking last September and will return to the province this Saturday for an off-the-beaten-path gig at Tahora.

Eastern is coming as part of Arts on Tour, which specialises in taking great acts to places that don't normally get them.

The gig is at the Turners' farm, 67 Tahora Rd, off The Forgotten World Highway and about 20 minutes from Whangamomona.

Free camping is available for the night for those wishing to use Tahora's camping facilities.

The Eastern members have stayed at Tahora before and said they're looking forward to playing a real heartland gig.

Music will start about 6.30pm with support acts also taking the stage - rain or shine.

Tickets are $20 and available from Vinyl Countdown or Stratford's iSite.

Do you think state schools should conduct religious instruction for primary-aged children?

Yes, it's important they learn christian values.

No, it's not appropriate in our secular schooling.

Don't care either way.
