Classic folk/pop group The Seekers head the third artist announcement for this year's Gympie Muster.
In December, The Seekers celebrated 50 years since the four original members – Judith Durham, Athol Guy, Keith Potger and Bruce Woodley – first met and performed together.
Also announced as joining the Muster line-up are Busby Marou (pictured), the Australian country duo that 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'," according to organisers. "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."
Damian Howard, front man and songwriter for The Ploughboys, has also been added to the 2013 artist roster. He recently recorded his second solo album – Out Of My Hands.
Others to join this year's line-up are Muster favourite and recent Golden Guitar winner Peter Denahy, 2012 Gympie Talent Search winner Jessica Jade-Bruce, highly respected musician and singer/songwriter Brendan Radford, 2012 Muster People's Choice Winner Lance Friend, Brisbane party band Kelly's Heroes and America's John Stone.
Marco Gliori returns in 2013 to host the Muster Poets' Breakfast and new to this year's event will be performances from The Muster Ukes (aka the Brisbane Ukulele Music Society) who will also will conduct workshops.
