THERE will be more than just wine at the fourth annual Pipers Brook Vineyard Concert tomorrow, with an interstate act touching down in the state yesterday.
The Voice finalist Simon Meli and his band The Widowbirds have skipped 30-degree temperatures and bushfires near Sydney to headline this year's family friendly concert, and will be supported by Australia's Got Talent semi-finalist Reuben Koops, of Launceston.
It is the first time the three-year- old rock piece has performed in Tasmania and laid-back Meli is looking forward to it.
"The first time I was here I was about 10 and I was petrified at the wind at Mount Wellington," he said yesterday.
Meli became well-know across the country as a finalist on national television show The Voice.
However, he admits he isn't a big fan of reality singing competitions.
"But unfortunately, and this is the truth now, they are the new radio station," Meli said.
People are able to take food to the concert, however, BYO alcohol is prohibited.
Gates open at 10am with Koops due to perform at noon and The Widowbirds at 2.30pm.
