A Day on the Green headliner Mark Seymour is excited to be playing at Annie’s Lane Winery in February.

The Hunters and Collectors front man said that travelling the terrain in a string of shows was always good fun.

“The atmosphere at a day on the green is terrific and people are really relaxed,” Seymour said.

While Seymour always performs a few Hunters and Collectors hits, festival goers will also be treated to songs off of his latest album Mark Seymour and the Undertow and his new album which will be released in May.

Seymour believed a day on the green benefited the regional towns in which it is held, visiting many destinations that would not have any other event of this sort.

“a day on the green is a great idea and it’s really caught on. The season lasts for six months which is a lot of shows,” Seymour said.

Show promoter for a day on the green, Michael Newton, said that the audience had always been a real cross section of old and young, and they didn’t expect this year to be any different.

“The beautiful surrounds of the winery make for a perfect location for a concert. We try hard to put together line ups that offer good value while people can also bring a picnic, rug and deckchair so it’s a great way to spend a day.

“a day on the green aim to be really friendly events where the focus is on relaxing and enjoying the surrounds and sounds,” he said.

The range of line up at Annie’s Lane means it will be rare for anyone not to know at least one of the artists and many will recognise songs even if they do not know the artists name.

“We worked hard to create an event that will enable people to enjoy a heap of songs they know and can sing along or have a dance to.”

“It’s a great crop of Australian artists, all with a great pedigree and a ton of hits between them,” he said.
