Australia’s own raconteurs, Mustered Courage, have been delivering their diverse brand of roots music and bluegrass that appeals to both traditionalists and newcomers alike. The Melbourne based group that Music Australia Guide describes as “the link between Bill Monroe and Mumford & Sons” has risen to the top of Australia’s folk and roots scene on the strength of their energetic live shows and albums that have won them glowing reviews, loads of radio support and a “Golden Guitar” for Instrumental of the Year 2015 along with a 2015 ARIA nomination for Best Country Album.
In 2016, the band’s supported their latest release, “White Lies & Melodies” on Lost Highway Music with a series of successful Texas style BBQ and music events. As Rolling Stone so apply stated, “it’s inevitable that this band has a huge international career ahead of them”. Mustered Courage are already fulfilling that destiny with over 100 international shows under their belt.
