AUSTRALIA'S first international supergroup, The Seekers, has joined the line-up for the 2013 Gympie Music Muster.

The Seekers topped charts around the world with hits such as Georgy Girl, The Carnival Is Over and I'll Never Find Another You

Famous for putting Australia on the international pop music map with their unique pop sound, singing in four-part harmony playing 6 and 12-string acoustic guitars and double bass, The Seekers still hold the record for the biggest concert crowd in the southern hemisphere - 200,000 - in March 1967.

The Seekers celebrated an amazing  milestone in December 2012 which  marked 50 years since the four original members - Judith Durham, Athol Guy, Keith Potger and Bruce Woodley - first met and performed together … still rockin', rollin', ridin' after half a century!

Their appearance at the Gympie Music Muster will provide a one-off opportunity for fans to experience the Seekers "Under the Stars" in what is sure to be a truly magical evening.

Joining the Seekers on the Muster line-up will be Busby Marou - an Australian duo who has made a big mark on the contemporary music landscape since the release of their self-titled debut album in 2011.

Busby Marou is a perfect fit for the 'Muster'. Tom Busby's cheeky on stage presence and Jeremy Marou's freakish musical ability on all instruments combine to deliver a distinctly Australian way of sharing stories.

Jetting in from Nashville to perform at his first ever Muster will be John Stone.

During a career spanning 10 years in America's country music capital, Stone can recall countless highlights, including entertaining world leaders at the 2004 White House Christmas party, and being named a top 25 finalist in the Nashville Star competition.

When he's not touring, Stone can be found performing his long-running gig at the renowned Tootsie's Orchid Lounge in Nashville.

Having picked up the guitar at the age of six the multi-talented and self-taught singer/songwriter also plays the bass, drums, harmonica and piano.

At the Muster, Stone will draw upon all of his musical talent to deliver what he is best known for - energetic, crowd-pleasing performances that leave his audiences wanting more.
 
Damian Howard is probably best known as front man and songwriter for The Ploughboys and has recently recorded his second solo album - Out Of My Hands. On stage, audiences will receive the best of both worlds.

Others to join the 2013 line-up are Talent Search winner for 2012, Jessica-Jade Bruce, Muster favourite and recent Golden Guitar winner Peter Denahy, highly respected musician and singer/songwriter Brendan Radford, 2012 Muster People's Choice Winner Lance Friend, Greg Austen - The Breaker, and Brisbane party band Kellys Heroes.

The entertainment doesn't stop with the spectacular array of bands and artists.

Marco Gilori returns in 2013 to host the hilarious Muster Poets' Breakfast featuring a collection of hard boiled bad eggs, layered with rashers of raucous laughter, a mish-mash of musical interludes, a generous helping of humour, and a side-order of the unexpected, all topped with the bubble and squeak of audience members who are unwittingly included in their antics during Muster Morning Madness. Breakfasts will run each morning from Thursday through to Sunday of The Muster.

New to this year's Muster will be performances from The Muster Ukes (Brisbane Ukulele Music Society) who will also will conduct workshops.
