The an­nual event, held at Rail­side by the Green on Fe­bru­ary 13, is hosted by Mata­mata Coun­try Mu­sic Club.

Club spokesman Michael Tip­ping said the event will fea­ture a full af­ter­noon of mu­sic.

Clubs set to per­form in­clude the Young Guns from Pa­pakura, Hau­raki, Phoenix, South Waikato, Mor­rinsville and Mata­mata coun­try mu­sic clubs.

Style will vary be­tween mod­ern and clas­sic coun­try mu­sic. ‘‘All vis­it­ing clubs are great sup­port­ers of coun­try mu­sic so it’s great to have them along,’’ Michael said.

The clubs per­form­ing will pro­vide a vast range of songs and ta­lent, from those more ex­pe­ri­enced to those just start­ing out. ‘‘There will be some­thing for ev­ery­one. It’s just a fun, fam­ily friendly day,’’ Michael said.

The mu­sic kicks off at 11am and runs through to 5pm.

En­try is free so bring your chair and en­joy six hours of great coun­try mu­sic from six wider Waikato coun­try mu­sic clubs.

The pub­lic are wel­come to bring a pic­nic, but food will be avail­able.

Michael said the club has had great sup­port from the com­mu­nity ahead of this year’s event in­clud­ing a do­na­tion from AMI and the lend­ing of a gazebo from Prop­erty Bro­kers and Wright­sons. The pub­lic have also al­ways been great sup­port­ers of the event. ‘‘We hope it will be the same again this year,’’ Michael said.

Coun­try Mu­sic on the Green kicks off Mata­mata Coun­try Mu­sic Club’s monthly club nights. These will start in March and are held ev­ery third Fri­day of the month at the Mata­mata Pri­mary School hall.
