All-Kiwi lineup for summer festival
'Good way for us to kick off a Kiwi summer'VICKI ANDERSON
Popular summer festival A Day on the Green will feature an all-Kiwi lineup for the first time, with the first concert date this year in Waipara.
The Kiwi Summer Edition will include performances by The Black Seeds, Fly My Pretties and the Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra at the Mud House Winery in Waipara on December 1, the Alana Estate Winery in Martinborough on December 8 and Auckland's Villa Maria Estate Winery on December 16.
Barnaby Weir, a key member of all three bands, said he was looking forward to the summer shows.
''We've never really done a winery tour as such, so it's a first. Idyllic settings in the summer sun - it'll be great,'' he said.
''It'll be a bit of a best of for Fly My Pretties. It'll be the story so far, and there might be room for a new track.
''The Black Seeds are on the European festival circuit in August, so these shows will be a good way for us to kick off a Kiwi summer when we get back.''
Tickets to the Waipara show will be available from Ticketmaster and the Mud House Winery on Tuesday.
