TWO lucky contest winners from regional Queensland had the chance to meet award-winning singer songwriter Kasey Chambers at the Gympie Muster last night.

Patricia Finn, from Dalby, and Pat Johnston, from Rockhampton, both won tickets to the Muster and the chance to meet one of the festival's headline acts after entering draws at Mini Muster events earlier this month.

"It was such a shock," said Mrs Johnston.

"I never win anything."

The contest winners and their guests met Chambers and Nicholson backstage immediately after their Muster performance, during which the couple debuted their new duets album Wreck and Ruin.

There was the additional, very cute appearance by the couple's youngest daughter Poet.

"She's shy just like her mum," Chambers joked.

She and Nicholson posed for photos and signed autographs before going to sign autographs for punters in the artist tent.

"It was so exciting", Mrs Johnston said after the meet and greet.

The Gympie Muster continues today and tomorrow.
