Artists appearing at the 2018 Muster

Adam Harvey


With a career spanning almost twenty years, over half a million album sales, gold and platinum albums and eight Golden Guitar Awards, Adam Harvey is one of Australia’s most popular & enduring recording artists.

He has made some mighty fine records along the way: the staples "Both Sides Now", "Cowboy Dreams" and the recent "Family Life" are among them… and then there’s the much loved collaboration with Troy Cassar-Daly "The Great Country Songbook". Now he can add one more to the list, "Harvey’s Bar… The Backyard Sessions". 

Adam Harvey’s deep, soulful voice is one of the great all-time voices of Australian country music and he is looking forward to coming to Murgon to share some songs and stories at the Murgon Music Muster in November.


Graham Rodger


Graham Rodger is a very passionate Australian. Through his involvement in the Australian Country Music industry he has raised money for outback small towns, brings joy to thousands of Australians, he’s helping to keep our history alive and stirs our national pride. 

Since 1998 with the release of his first Album “Steering Wheel Drovers” he has made a huge impression on the industry. As both singer and songwriter his name has become synonymous with top quality Australian ballads. Graham’s song “You Can’t Take Australia From Me” was recited at Slim Dusty’s funeral by another great Australian, Dick Smith. What a great honour to be a writer for Slim as well as being chosen to be involved in his farewell. 

Graham has established himself as a much favoured performer with a highly developed natural flow. The quality of Graham’s vocal ability portrays the conviction and the emotion with which he sings his ballads. He tells stories which encapsulates, you so you feel and live the stories he is telling.
