IN WHAT can only be described as a major coup, the Muster has secured a rare session with one of Australia's greatest songwriters, Don Walker.

Don was the principal songwriter for Cold Chisel and the man behind some of the most iconic pop and rock songs and anthems of all time including Flame Trees, Saturday Night, Choirgirl, Breakfast At Sweet

hearts, Cheap Wine, and of course, the classic, Khe Sanh.

Don also has written songs for Jeff Lang, Mick Harvey, Troy Cassar-Daley, Jimmy Little, Jimmy Barnes, Ian Moss, Anne Kirkpatrick and many others.

In 2000 he wrote the title song for Slim Dusty's 100th album, Looking Forward, Looking Back.

Don will be in conversation with highly respected music journalist, Noel Mengel, from the Courier Mail.

This session is sure to be very popular, so grab your seat early for what will be a one-off opportunity to listen to Don Walker - his words and music.

Slim Dusty's wife, Joy McKean, also will be in conversation with noted artist, radio and television presenter, Colin Buchanan.

Apart from being a highly successful songwriter who has written and contributed songs for the likes of Lee Kernaghan, Troy Cassar-Daley, Sara Storer and many more country stars, Colin has also spent time as a presenter on radio, Playschool, The Disney Channel and is the host of Big Sky Country on the Qantas In-Flight entertainment program.

Max Ellis's interview will be co-conducted by the colourful lead singer from the Bushwackers, Dobe Newton who apart from being a noted front man is also a highly respected broadcaster, presenter and emcee.

Dobe is also one of our great songwriters having co-penned the alternative national anthem, I Am Australian.

Joining Dobe will be the 2013 Muster CEO James Dein who, like Max, has had a long and extensive career in broadcasting as well as staging and promoting agricultural field days and music events.
