Live music among the vines with Ross Wilson

Music lovers can enjoy an afternoon of family-friendly fun this weekend as live music returns to a Grampians winery.

Pomonal Estate will host Ross Wilson and the Peaceniks as part of Wilson’s ‘Cool World’ show on Saturday.  

Bands ‘The Badloves’, ‘King Canyon’ and Wimmera musician Andrew ‘Parso’ Parsons will also entertain guests, who have access to a range of food trucks on the day.

Wilson said it was ‘terrific’ there were places such as Pomonal Estate to host live outdoor events.

“Everyone knows the disruptions we have had in the music and performance industries,” he said. 

“Hopefully everyone does the right thing and we’ll go out in the sun, jump around and have a good time, drink some wine, eat some food and listen to some music.” Pomonal Estate hosted Boom Crash Opera frontman Dale Ryder during a ‘Live at the Gap’ concert in 2021. 

Estate owner Pep Atchison said the winery was a great setting for a concert.

“What better place than a winery to get out to experience some live music, savour fine local food and wine and socialise with friends again,” she said. 

Wilson said the Grampians was one of his favourite places in Victoria. 

“The Grampians has always been on top of my list for places to go,” he said. 

“There will be a couple of new songs I will play that people will not have heard before. 

“I will be heading back into the studio soon to do another album and I like to road test songs before I record them.”
