Muster CD heads back to Amamoor Creek

THE Gympie Music Muster will release its 35th anniversary compilation album next Monday, August 15.

The double CD set celebrates the Muster's incredible musical legacy while also donating part proceeds to charity Mates4Mates which supports wounded current and ex-serving Australian Defence Force 'Mates' and their families.

Artists performing at the Muster this year have generously donated their royalties and the double CD package is a valuable must-have anniversary souvenir with 35 tracks capturing the spirit of the festivals 35th birthday spectacular for $35. Great songs and fantastic memories for a very worthwhile charity close to everyone's heart.

Tracks include notable releases and fan-favourites from this year's headline acts and festival newcomer's including Gympie local and Emerging Talent contestant Alice Benfer's track Amamoor Creek.

Written about the 35 year history of the Muster, she recounts the festival's renowned nostalgic journey with award winning co-songwriter Garth Porter, the man behind many of the hits by artists such Lee Kernaghan, James Blundell, Sara Storer and many more.

Benfer sings:

"It started out in Widgee back in 1982. The Webb Brothers kicked it off - every year it grew.

"We're heading down to Amamoor Creek to join the people there - The spirit of the country - there's music everywhere. It's a celebration! There's nothing can compare. In every song we're singing - There's magic in the air.”
