After a heavy touring schedule of headlining club dates and festival appearances in Australia, these down-home pickers set their sights on the United States where they were invited by the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) to perform at the IBMA’s weeklong 2014 World of Bluegrass conference and festival.
This invitation turned into a full-blown tour that included 60 shows in 70 days across 43 U.S. states. Like the Avett Brothers and Old Crow Medicine Show, Mustered Courage bridge the gap between traditional bluegrass and modern roots music. They are a band on the rise that, as Rhythms contends, is “guaranteed to soon be on to bigger things.”
