Hunters and Collectors front man Mark Seymour will perform in Woodend this Saturday to raise funds for the town’s junior football club.

Seymour (pictured) is best known as lead singer of one of Australia’s most successful rock bands but will perform a mixed set of his own music and a handful of Hunters and Collectors hits.

Mana Music manager Bernard Galbally, a Woodend resident involved with the club, says Seymour has a strong social and community conscience.

“We thought it would be great to put on a fund-raiser for the Woodend Junior Football Club, and when we thought about who would be the best person to kick it off, Mark was top of our list.

“I’ve known and worked with him as a solo performer and with Hunters and Collectors since the late-80s so we pitched the idea to him and his manager, explained what a great place Woodend is, what a great club the WJFC is and how important junior sports are to regional areas – and they agreed to a concert.”

Macedon Ranges band Brother Johnstone will support Seymour.

The concert, open to everyone, is at St Ambrose Hall, 14-16 Templeton Street. There will be door prizes, raffles and a silent auction.

Doors open at 7pm. Tickets at $30, plus booking fee, are available from
