High Country Music Muster

Country Music Muster FINAL

It has been months in the making, but we can finally share the exciting new!

So here goes, the Snow Goose Hotel and Carlton Draught are proud to introduce the High Country Music Muster! Coming to Adaminaby on the 2nd and 3rd of February 2018!

A great weekend for the whole family!

Live entertainment, great food, camp oven cook off and good old fashion country hospitality.

Now it wouldn’t be in the country spirit if we didn’t support one of our local sporting groups, so our very first muster will be raising funds to help out the Adaminaby Pony Club and keep high country kids on horseback.

So without further delay, allow us to present our exciting line up of entertainment on the Miners Transport Main Stage!

Lets get the party started on Friday Night with Urban Drover

Once we recover from Fridays efforts we will ease into Saturday with Shelby Grace and Matilda Rose alongside Michael John Horneman and Rachael Fahim, the current Toyota Star Maker.

While you enjoy the amazing talent, check out what else our festival has to offer. From the camp oven cook off to the local yarns.

For a big bang on Saturday, party the night away with Brad Cox

There will be so much to see and do you just can’t miss out!

Tell your mates, share the post and #SeeYouAtTheSnowGoose!

Ripped feet first from the belly of the Kosciuszko Mountains, stubby in hand. Baptised in the freezing head waters of the Snowy River, Brad Cox! Brace yourself. Songs full of heart and maturity well beyond his years. A sound which can induce hypnosis and coma. You may require medical attention after hearing Brads music, but no rehab will ever cure you of the addiction. Live on Saturday night at the High Country Music Muster

Rachael Fahim

Rachael Fahim

What happens when a magnetic presence intersects with pure talent? Sydney born country music singer Rachael Fahim has won her way into the hearts of audience and industry alike one performance at a time. The tiny framed, big voiced pocket rocket delivers dynamic performance over and over again showing of her soulful growl, light pop and folky roots. 

“It’s important to me that I delivery an honest performance and share my stories with people. It doesn’t matter to me if I am playing for one person or thousands if I can reach just one person and change their day, well that just means the world to me.” 

Not only is Rachael an incredible performer she is also a talented songwriter, who wears her heart on her sleeve. Rachael’s creativity and fearless approach to her music has seen her tour the east coast of Australia as well as performing at some of Australia’s biggest country music festivals. 

Rachael grew up in the outskirts of the Sydney Metro area so when she fell in love with Country music and decided to pursue it, it’s safe to say that she raised a few eyebrows. “I quickly became known in the talent quest circle as the “country girl from the city” – something that Rachael has embraced and channelled into her style and sound. “I grew up listening to my parent’s music and luckily, for me, that included Country. It was important to me, especially as I got older and was able to express myself by producing and developing a raw and authentic sound that really reflected me”. During school, Rachael, like many young women was badly bullied and turned to writing her stories with catchy riffs, and fun and quirky thoughts

Live music is important to Rachael, “I love performing live, more than being in a studio really. It’s so cool to be out and playing for people and meeting them. I especially love when I get home from a gig and there is a message from someone on social media saying that I have made a new fan in them. I don’t take this lightly!”

Michael Horneman

Michael J Horneman

From Electrician, model and country Music Artist. The release of Michael John Horneman’s debut single “What We’ve Found” in July 2014 marked the beginning of a fresh new direction as a country artist. MJH has spent the last 6 years writing and playing shows along the East Coast of Australia in “map dot” pubs and local venues, writing heart felt songs about life and love. Written from a musician’s perspective, the hard work and dedication to inspiring people through music brings forth his debut release which is all about loving where you live, and living out what you love.

Born in the working class town of Wollongong, before moving to Cooma in country NSW, Michael grew up on a farm twenty kilometers from town. Michael’s music loving parents fostered a passion for music throughout his childhood, which led to further study in Melbourne after high school. The five years in Melbourne’s musical melting pot, gave Michael the opportunity for chance meetings and exposure to some of Australia’s greatest artists. This left Michael with a deep sense of conviction that as an artist, though the road can be long and hard, the joy of sharing music and giving people hope was the catalyst to steer Michael down his career path so far. A return to his childhood town in 2013 gave Michael the creative space to write and develop as an artist without compromising on being true to himself.

The last 2 years have been spent refining the craft of live performance and songwriting and developing the material to make up Michael’s debut full length release planned for late 2017.

Thanks for taking the time to read about my journey, I hope that my music will give you as much joy as it has given me over the years.
