The Mavericks get mustered

The Mavericks are Gympie-bound, playing Main Stage at this year’s Muster.
The Mavericks are Gympie-bound, playing Main Stage at this year’s Muster.

AMERICAN country style garage band The Mavericks have been secured as the international headliners at the 32nd Gympie Music Muster in August.

Known as "the most interesting band in the world", The Mavericks fuse traditional country with rock'n'roll, in their killer-cool Tex-Mex style, season it with saxophones and lashings of hot Latino - a mix that has been slaying audiences for decades, but never in Australia … until now.

Oh What A Thrill, There Goes My Heart, Dance The Night Away, What A Cryin' Shame - the hits just keep on rolling, and their Main Stage appearance will be among the most unforgettable ever presented anywhere.

CMAA Golden Guitar winners litter the 2013 Gympie Music Muster line-up, including both the Male and Female Artist of The Year.

Newly-crowned Male Artist of the Year, Troy Cassar-Daley will perform songs from his award winning Home album, while Female Artist of the Year, Catherine Britt, will showcase her current landmark release Always Never Enough which earned seven nominations in the January Awards.

Tamara Stewart will be warmly welcomed back after a lengthy hiatus. She landed with a bang, picking up the Vocal Collaboration of the Year Golden Guitar for Women in Song, sharing the honour with Sara Storer who will have a keenly anticipated new album to showcase when she goes on stage.

Chelsea Basham launched her album Make My Own Sunshine at the Muster last year and proudly returns this year as Golden Guitar winner of Best New Talent.

In what can only be described as a major coup, the Gympie Music Muster has confirmed global sensations Sleepy Man Banjo Boys from New Jersey, USA.

With a combined age younger than Lee Kernaghan, 10-year-old banjo picker Jonny Mizzone, along with his brothers Robbie, 13, on fiddle and Tommy, 14, on guitar, burst on to the US music scene following their debut appearance on The David Letterman Show.

Lovers of traditional country music won't be disappointed in 2013, with the inclusion of this year's winner of the Bush Ballad of the Year Golden Guitar, Gympie's Graham Rodger, sure to please his many fans.
