I was a lucky (pun intended) person indeed to have traveled to Austin for Willie Nelson’s Luck Reunion earlier this month. I knew artists who performed there in past years and always regretted not being there, but finally got the chance this year.
This one-day event is held in Willie’s backyard (if it can be said that a ranch was a backyard) with only 2,000 tickets sold, so everyone who attends is lucky.
The lineup for the 2019 Luck Reunion, held outside Austin, Texas during South by South West, was announced yesterday and as always it is amazing! Personal favorites include Willie Nelson, Steve Earle, Langhorne Slim, Mavis Staples, and Nathaniel Rateliff.
Other artists I have yet to, but have been wanting to, see include Low Cut Connie, Billy Strings, Yola and Sunny War.
The Blue Hills Bank Pavilion is not my favorite venue (the sound is uneven at best), but even that was not enough to negatively impact the show. Read the rest of this entry
