MountainGrass Festival 2017
One of Australia’s best bluegrass bands (and one of our great favourites here at Listening Through The Lens) is heading to the tiny town of Harrietville this November.
Melbourne-based Mustered Courage will be joining MountainGrass Festival 2017. A band to be reckoned with as they showcase bluegrass mixed with just about anything, all delivered with high energy and passion. Instrumentals, innovative songwriting and glorious harmonies abound. After a hiatus, their return to live shows will be warmly welcomed.
Harrietville is located on the Great Alpine Road in the shadow of Mount Feathertop and is the gateway to the bustling-in-winter Mount Hotham (regional Victoria). While MountainGrass will be in its sixth year in this guise, there has been an annual bluegrass and old-time music event in the town for more than twenty years.
MountainGrass is organised by the Australasian Bluegrass and Old Time Music Association (ABOTMA).
