Giddy up Brisbane! It’s almost time to welcome Ekka back to town. To celebrate the public holiday eve, The Fortitude Music Hall is hosting a line-up that boasts four ARIAs, five Golden Guitars and six AIR awards.
Truly the hoedown of the year, Urban Muster features an impressive cross-section of blues, country, folk & Americana. Across two stages, expect collaborations, cowboy hats, and a mechanical bull – yeehaw.
Leading the lineup is bluesy banjo slinger and expert storyteller C.W. Stoneking, returning to Brisbane with his genre-bending blend of everything from 1920s pre-war blues to hokum, country and jazz – expect the unexpected. Joining him are Sydney’s All Our Exes Live In Texas. Drawing comparisons to artists as varied as First Aid Kit and The Waifs, these four harmonising heroes will have heels clicking and boots scootin’. Crooners and country chaunteuses Fanny Lumsden, Wagons, Ruby Gilbert and Camping are also jumping on board to provide the evening’s soundtrack.
The party doesn’t stop at the final chord. Everyone is invited to the official afterparty upstairs at The Outpost featuring The Wet Whistles and drink specials all night to really whet that whistle till the cows come home.
Urban Muster is proudly presented by The Fortitude Music Hall & Amazon Music. Fortitude Music Hall members pre-sale kicks off Wednesday May 12 at 9:00 am with general tickets on sale 9:00 am on Thursday May 13 via Ticketmaster. Tickets are expected to gallop away for this one so, on your horse.
