Whether you call it bluegrass, newgrass, country or folk, this progressive acoustic band from Melbourne has undeniably created a sound and musical atmosphere unlike anyone else.
With a strong focus on infectious songwriting and three part vocal harmonies, this raucous group of musicians has impressed audiences everywhere from Melbourne to Nashville and everywhere in between with their fast pickin’ and catchy songwriting.
While their songs and influence pays homage to traditional bluegrass, Mustered Courage also manage to deliver a fresh-faced perspective to newcomers of the acoustic music and alternative folk movement.
In September 2018, this Golden Guitar Award winning and ARIA nominated band released their fourth studio album “We Played With Fire” to critical acclaim yet again, picking up two CMAA Golden Guitar nominations for Bluegrass Recording of the Year and Instrumental of the Year.
Like the Avett Brothers and Old Crow Medicine Show, Mustered Courage bridge the gap between traditional bluegrass and modern roots music. They are a band on the rise that, as Rhythms contends, is “guaranteed to soon be on to bigger things.”
