A new line-up for the Deniliquin Ute Muster this October has been announced, adding a stronger country sound.June 25, 2014 8:07am
Play on the Plains Festival Inc has been forced to make a change to the Deniliquin Ute Muster concert line-up.
Due to scheduling conflicts, the four Australian music legends who make up the Time Of My Life Band – James Reyne, Daryl Braithwaite, Joe Camilleri and Ross Wilson – have had to cancel.
They have been replaced with country music legends and Deniliquin Ute Muster stalwarts Adam Harvey and Troy Casser-Daley.
The pair will join the Friday night line-up, sharing the limelight with Morgan Evans and American artists Blackjack Billy and Gary Allan.
Saturday night will feature Australian charting artists Sheppard, Aussie rock band Spiderbait, American legends The Mavericks and Aussie rock legend Jimmy Barnes.
The promoters were busy working behind the scenes on the replacements and are thrilled Casser-Daley and Harvey are returning to the muster stage with their duet Great Country Song Book show.
The pair said they need no excuse to get together on the road. They love touring together and having the opportunity to perform their favourite country songs as recorded by other country music stars.
Their album, The Great Country Song Book, includes everyone’s favourite country songs, top-heavy with Troy and Adam’s biggest personal influences: Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, George Jones, Hank Williams, Glen Campbell, and Aussie country icon Slim Dusty.
The Great Country Song Book concert has played to sell-out shows around the country and muster patrons can look forward to hearing them perform He Stopped Loving Her Today, Behind Closed Doors, You’re My Best Friend, Lights on the Hill, Walk the Line and many more.
Now in its 16th year, the Deni Ute Muster celebrates all things Australian and is the largest event of its kind in the world.
Year on year the muster continues to grow bigger and better and 2014 is on track to once again break all its records.
There will also be non-stop activity around the festival site with most of last year’s favourites returning, including the Bull Ride Spectacular, The Australian National Circle Work Championships, Ute Museum, Holden Grunt Off, Holden Barrel Race and Show ‘n’ Shine, plus a host of trade sites and food stalls.
Big kids and little kids also love Carnival Corner, helicopter rides, the family centre, the mechanical bucking bull, woodchop demonstrations and Whip Cracking Championships.
Additional competitions will also be held for tradie utes to encourage more of another iconic Aussie breed.
Ute Muster tickets are on sale now and available at www.deniutemuster.com.au.
