The team behind outdoor summer concert events, a day on the green, are set to launch a brand new live music series next month. 

The inaugural Cellar Door Series - which "will offer an up-close, acoustic and stripped-back experience with your favourite musicians held adjacent to the cellar doors of some of the most picturesque wineries across the country" - will go ahead on 20 March at Bimbadgen winery in the Hunter Valley with US legend Ben Folds and special guest, Australian songwriter Gordi.

“The Cellar Door Series will ease a day on the green fans back into live music safely without compromising on quality entertainment," Roundhouse Entertainment Promoter Michael Newton said.

"The concept will look different – as well as the smaller capacity, the Cellar Door Series will start and finish earlier, with the show ending before sunset and only two artists on the bill.

"Twenty years and nearly 500 shows since we launched a day on the green, it’s exciting to announce something new that will complement the a day on the green experience.

"We’re thrilled to be launching the series with honorary Aussie Ben Folds and look forward to announcing more Cellar Door shows around the country soon.”

Tickets for the Ben Folds performance go on sale from 1pm this Friday (19 February). Check out theGuide for more details.
