Luck Reunion, the all-day celebration of music held on site at Willie Nelson’s Spicewood, Texas, ranch, resumes after a two-year pandemic interruption. Set for Thursday, March 17, during South by Southwest’s music week in nearby Austin, the 10th installment announced its lineup on Thursday.
Willie Nelson and Family top a diverse bill that includes rock bands, troubadours, up-and-comers, and lifers. Black Lips, Charley Crockett, Tré Burt, Neal Francis, Lily Meola, and Lucero are all part of the lineup. Other notables include Japanese Breakfast, 49 Winchester, Adia Victoria, Steve Gunn, S.G. Goodman, and Weyes Blood. (See the full lineup below.)
The Luck Reunion news coincides with the announcement of the inaugural Spring Concert Series at the ranch, an Old West movie set on which Nelson filmed the 1986 Western Red Headed Stranger. The concert series begins March 18 with Jason Isbell. Future installments include Shakey Graves and Modest Mouse.
Nelson’s performance at the Luck Reunion is one of the country music legend’s scattered, mainly outdoor, tour dates for 2021. He’s also set to play New Orleans’ Jazz Fest in May and the Windy City Smokeout in Chicago in August.
