With spring rapidly approaching, more and more concerts in the Lake Travis area have been announced.
Here’s the scoop on some of the top live musical performances coming through the area in the next few months.
Hal Ketchum at One World Theatre — Friday 2/5/16
You can catch country music legend Hal Ketchum in the One World Theatre off Bee Caves Road for one of two evening shows.
As part of his intimate acoustic shows, Hal shares fun stories behind his 15 Top Ten hits along with other wild times.
Tejas Brothers at Poodie’s Hilltop Roadhouse — Saturday 2/20/16
Show off your Tex-Mex Honky Tonk dance moves to The Tejas Brothers when they roll through Spicewood.
Poodie’s Roadhouse has a dance floor and plenty of seating to refuel with a tasty Poodie burger during the show.
Luck Reunion at Willie Nelson’s Ranch in Luck, TX — Friday 3/18/16
You can avoid the SXSW madness occurring during spring break week in downtown Austin while still checking out plenty of great bands.
Luck Reunion will host 20+ artists (lineup has yet to be announced) across two stages on Willie Nelson’s ranch in Luck, Texas — just a few miles south of Briarcliff.
The ranch was originally built as the setting for Willie’s feature film “The Red Headed Stranger” so tons of photo ops are abound with a jailhouse, chapel, and saloon.
NOLA, Texas Food and Music Festival at Cedar Park Center — Sunday 4/3/16
If you’re looking to get a taste of Louisiana, this food and music festival is serving it in spades.
General admission tickets ($30) get you into see legendary artists including former Joe Cocker’s Mad Dogs & Englishmen bandleader Leon Russell, Austin based Asleep at the Wheel bringing the Texas boogie woogie, and New Orleans’ own Dr. John.
Children 10 years & under are free with a paid ticket.
Dueling piano from two greats in Dr. John and Leon isn’t quite advertised, but it’s almost a guarantee with Leon Russell finding additional success on a 2010 album and tour with Elton John.
The VIP pass ($150) includes brunch from Louisiana native and New Orleans culinary expert John Besh starting at 11am and an all-you-can-eat crawfish boil.

Jimmy Webb at One World Theatre — Sunday 5/1/16
The prolific singer, songwriter, producer, and longtime collaborator with Glen Campbell comes to One World Theatre.

Just a couple of his famous hits include ‘By the Time I Get to Phoenix’ (the third most performed song between the years 1940 and 1990) and ‘MacArthur Park’ — how can you not love a guy who wrote a song with the lyrics “someone left the cake out in the rain”?
