Margaret River's Wine Festival will be singing to a new tune with the announcement of its headline act for the Vintage Concert.

The 2009 Margaret River Wine Region Festival presented by Channel Nine and WIN Television will stage “A Tribute to the Diva’s of Jazz” with talents James Morrison and Deni Hines putting on a family concert at the Leeuwin Estate Amphitheatre on Sunday 19th April 2008.
