Headlining the event will be Sheppard, Adam Brand, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Troy Cassar-Daley and Amber Lawrence.

Also making a welcome return and recently back from a tour of Ireland is iconic singer/songwriter and former Goanna front-man Shane Howard. Crowd favourite Roo Arcus is also back after a two-year absence and local Gympie rockers Stealing Lincoln make a triumphant return.

There are a few first-timers, including The Mercurys, Jenny Queen, Mickey Pie, Matt Stillert, The Settlement, Briggenshaw and Tasha Amaroso.

Fans of the Bush Poets Breakfast will be happy to know that the Muster poets will take to the Muster club stage led once again by renowned poet Marco Gilori.

There are a couple of new workshops in 2015, including harmonica, with music industry veteran Lawrie Minson and guitar with master axe-man Tim Gaze.

Completing the line-up are seasoned country stars Lindsay Butler and Shaza Leigh (in a full show format), powerhouse singer Adi Burgess and 2014 Talent Search finalist Mitchell King. Tickets are available at http://www.muster.com.au.
