Gympie Music Muster program director Jeff Chandler said the 2017 Muster program will feature hundreds of performances across five stages, covering a range of genres including country, bluegrass, folk, blues and rockabilly.
"Headliner Jessica Mauboy is an artist for all Australians. She is one hell of a singer with an incredibly diverse repertoire," Mr Chandler said.
"While she's known for delivering a mix of R&B, dance, pop and power ballads, she also won the first Telstra Road to Tamworth competition, and can belt out a country song alongside some of the best.
"I saw her recently in concert and she puts her heart and soul into her shows, and has a dedicated country segment in her set. She has a real connection with her audience, and will put on a performance worthy of our Muster crowd."
