Mustered Courage

Woodford, Illawara, Tamworth, Port Fairy, National Folk and … Bob Hawke – 15/01/2013

Happy new year ‘Mustered Cousins’, Welcome to 2013 and we hope you had as amazing time over the holiday period as we did. We spent 12 hours driving on X’mas day and ate carrots rather than turkey whilst trapped in the ‘Mustered Carriage’. We did listen to about 30 versions of “All I want for Christmas is You” which helped pass the time. Cee-Lo’s version was the best.

We arrived at Woodford Folk Festival on Boxing Day and prepped for 8 nights in tents. Woodford was the most amazing festival we’ve ever experienced due to it’s sheer size and atmosphere. We were lucky enough to open the festival at 9:30am the day after boxing day, and believe it or not we had a packed tent for the morning gig. The next day we opened for Bob Hawke on the concert stage. We snagged a photo with ‘Hawkey’ and had a good chat. The next few days were just blissful weather, music , making new friends and lots of love to be shared. We tip our hats to the Woodford team and volunteers for creating such an amazing experience for all concerned.

We’ve got a HUGE YEAR ahead. Our new album is finished and we will be releasing the first single on February 1st. We’ll be giving the track away FOR FREE so make sure you sign up to our mailing list and like us on facebook to stay in the loop.

We’ll be playing in Melbourne at THE WESLEY ANNE EVERY THURSDAY in FEB to promote the release of the new single. We have great supports every week so hopefully we’ll see some of you Melbourne cats there.

We’re about to embark on our second TAMWORTH Country Music Festival for the rest of the month and will also be stopping by Illawarra Folk Festival on the way north. I’m sure we’ll be catching up with a lot of you at both of these festivals. We’ve also been announced for PORT FAIRY FOLK FESTIVAL and NATIONAL FOLK FESTIVAL. We’ll be touring nationally this year so if we’ve never been to your town and you have venue suggestions or want to throw a private house concert/party.. drop us a line at musteredcourage@gmail.com   We love to hear from everybody.

If anyone has any videos or photos from Woodford Folk Fest we’d love to see them.. Post them to our facebook or drop us an email!
