Now in its 37th year, the Gympie Music Muster has again delivered a quality line-up of country and roots musician headlined by a trio of iconic Australian acts: Lee Kernaghan, Troy Cassar-Daley (Troy is also the 2018 ambassador of the event) and John Williamson.
Other additions to the line-up include former member of Cold Chisel Ian Moss along with Gympie favourites such as songstress Beccy Cole, sweet storyteller Sara Storer, 'Australia’s Got Talent' runners up The Wolfe Brothers and many more.
Troy Cassar-Daley can’t wait to return to the Muster. "The Gympie Muster has given me many things and some great experiences, playing with my old friends the Blue Heeler Band in the early stages of my career around 1992, then meeting my future wife Laurel Edwards there back stage in 1993 now 22 years married.
"This means the Muster and I have quite a lot of personal history and every time I grace that stage the memories come flooding back of all those amazing times. I am so proud to be an ambassador in 2018 and can't wait to share some tunes with you all up there."
Gympie Music Muster Program Director Jeff Chandler said this year’s line-up featured the cream of Australian country music, coupled with some of the hottest blues acts on the circuit. "Musicians like Ian Moss, Troy Cassar-Daley, Beccy Cole and Hat Fitz & Cara have real history with the Muster, and form part of our extended family of artists who regularly return to keep crowds entertained.
"But what sets our festival apart is that it's so much more than a line-up.
"Throw in intimate Songwriter Sessions, an all-star guitar-shredding jam, line and rock & roll dancing, instrument workshops and some surprise collaborations, and you begin to understand why the Muster is a diverse and unique programme that simply can't be experienced anywhere else."
