A long-term connection to the Gympie Music Muster and a passion for the festival has landed Berwick-based country artist, Andrew Swift, the honour of 2024 Muster Ambassador.
Golden Guitar winner Andrew Swift, whose achievements in the Australian country music scene have earned him widespread recognition, is excited about taking on the role.
Having participated in the Muster’s talent search in 2015, Andrew fondly recalled the fun progressions in his journey, from the emerging artist showcase to sharing a set time with Gretta Ziller two years later and then having his own spot two years ago.
“This year, to be named the ambassador is truly an honour,” he said.
“Whenever I come up, I make sure I camp because I love the whole vibe of it; camping means immersing yourself in it all.” he said.
“It caters to families as well as people who want to have a drink and have a good time; the Muster ticks all the boxes and I feel that’s what the festival does incredibly well.”
In his role as ambassador, Andrew will be actively involved on the ground throughout the Muster.
“I’m always telling people to go to Gympie and put it on their bucket lists.“ he said.
“To be an ambassador for something I’m already passionate about, is an exciting moment.“
Gympie Music Muster CEO Greg Cavanagh is excited to have the award-winning artist on board.
“His genuine love for the event and his passion for sharing it with others make him a perfect fit for this role.” he said.
