The music lineup for Luck Reunion was announced last week. Get ready to go full tilt at the day long festival on Friday, March 18th at Willie’s ranch in Luck, Texas.
Here’s the skinny on the music lineup, the special guest?, what to bring, and getting to Luck Reunion.
There’s something sure to satisfy anyone who loves rock, country, or the blues.
Who to see
Country and Americana fans already know by now Jack Ingram, Joe Pug, and one of the last real country outlaws, Billy Joe Shaver.
However, if you are looking to check out some newer artists while you’re there, Shelly Colvin and Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter John Fullbright are safe bets.
Luck Reunion also managed to curate some fantastic Austin-based musicians including Ray Wylie Hubbard, Erika Wennerstrom, and Delta Spirit’s Matthew Logan Vasquez.
Doyle Bramhall II built up his blues chops with Stevie Ray and Jimmie Vaughan, and the longtime touring guitarist for Eric Clapton will blow away any of your friends who love the blues.
It’s going to be hard to top singer/songwriter Jenny Lewis though as she commands the stage. A lot of people will no doubt be making the trek out to Luck to see her.
The special guest?
The man himself, Willie Nelson will be headlining with likely appearances by his children Paula, Micah, and Lukas Nelson.
There have been rumors swirling of Neil Young making an appearance for Luck Reunion. Lukas’ band, Promise of the Real, played and toured with Young around his latest album.
As a side note, Whitewater Amphitheater in New Braunfels recently announced a Neil Young and Promise of the Real show in April. We’ll wait and see as the Luck Reunion lineup does advertise a special guest.
What to bring
Like any all-day music festival, we recommend:
- sunglasses and a hat
- ear plugs (especially for the little ones if Neil Young shows up)
Getting to Willie Nelson’s Luck, Tx.
So far the organizers have confirmed a shuttle running to and from Arlyn Studios (200 Academy Drive Austin, TX) convenient for SXSW attendees and downtown Austin.
Options for parking closer to the event include off-site parking with a shuttle service or (very limited) on-site parking for $20. Both options can be mapped by following directions to 1100 Bee Creek Road in Spicewood.
We tried to reach the event organizers to see if they are planning any shuttle routes closer to the Lake Travis area (we’re pulling for a shuttle near the Hill Country Galleria), but they have yet to comment. If nothing else comes up, though, drive safe out there and carpool.
