In its 36th year, the Gympie Music Muster has announced a line-up of 100 per cent home-grown Australian talent.

Two-time ARIA Award winning and multi-platinum selling artist, Jessica Mauboy, will take the stage at one of Australia’s largest charity festivals.

Mauboy says it has always been a dream to play at The Muster.

“This is an honour and a thrill and I am going to bring my best country A game,” she says.

Gympie Music Muster program director Jeff Chandler says that while Mauboy is known for delivering a mix of R&B, dance, pop and power ballads, she can belt out a country song alongside some of the best.

“She won the first Telstra Road to Tamworth competition — she is one hell of a singer with an incredibly diverse repertoire,” he says.

“She has a real connection with her audience, and will put on a performance worthy of our Muster crowd.”

This year’s program will feature hundreds of performances across five stages, covering a range of genres including country, bluegrass, folk, blues and rockabilly.

Mr Chandler says the program will be one of the Muster’s best yet, featuring a musical style for everyone.

“We’re continuing to build on what we’ve always done, providing a variety of entertainment, while sticking firmly to our country roots,” he says.

Other major marquee artist include Adam Brand, Busby Marou and Graeme Connors.
