Magical Madrigals At Phillip Island Winery

THE COSY CELLAR DOOR of Phillip Island Winery will be humming to the sounds of local ‘a cappella’ group, VIVACE, this Saturday evening, 10th September, 5:30pm-8:30pm.

The third in the Phillip Island Winery’s Twilight Concert series, VIVACE will be presenting a repertoire of film classics with a mix of medieval and madrigal standards. Lead by Ross Fairhurst, VIVACE brings a completely different style of performance to the winery.

This is a musical performance you will never see in a hotel or typical music venue (that’s why we like to put on events like this).

Last Saturday, more than 80 patrons crammed into the cellar door to enjoy the classy southern-blues sounds of Tabasco Tom and Doc White.

They were backed up by Steve Williams on sax and harmonica (Steve has been a member of the John Farnham band since 1990), and also by Tom’s astonishing 16 year-old daughter Kaitlin on fiddle and vocal harmonies. It was a memorable night, one ‘out of the box’. (Tabasco Tom and Doc White are returning to the winery soon, watch the site for details and dates.)

Light dinners are available including a Ploughman’s platter of fresh-sliced meats, local cheeses and crusty breads, plus the usual delicious fare of cheese platters, dips, fresh salads and smoked trout. 

Admission free; bookings accepted. Phone: 5956 8465. 

Come and see us and relax with VIVACE  - or join in if you like. Don’t forget we also have LIVE ACOUSTIC music on every Saturday and Sunday afternoon.
