How are you? What have you been up to lately?
Going very well thanks, enjoying a winter of hibernation.
What’s your favourite thing about the NZ summer?
Long days, warmth, wearing light clothing and touring.
FMP are well known for their outstanding live show. What’s in store for A Day On The Green?
An outstanding live show is in store, definitely.
Have you performed in NZ wineries before?
A few, and it's always good fun.
What’s the best thing about it?
I don't drink wine, so for me it's more about the summer vibe, big gatherings and relaxed audiences.
What is FMP’s rehearsal process?
Most of us know the songs we're playing from previous tours, so it's a quick scrub up on those, and then a bit of extra time to work on any new ones that have come along.
