Willie Nelson and Family, Spoon, and Ethel Cain lead the lineup for the 2023 Luck Reunion, the annual event at Nelson’s ranch in Spicewood, Texas.
The one-day show will take place Thursday, March 17 (tangentially to South by Southwest, which will be going on in nearby Austin). More than 35 artists will perform, including Sir Woman, Devon Gilfillian, Shane Smith and the Saints, Guster, Pearla, Peter One, Terry Allen and the Panhandle Mystery Band, Arcy Drive, Hermanos Gutiérrez, Sierra Ferrell, and Angel White.
The event was originally scheduled for March 16, but was postponed by a day due to forecasted weather alerts. “Luck Presents has spent the last 48 hours assessing incoming weather patterns to the Spicewood, TX area,” a statement read. “Under the advisement of Travis County officials and the National Weather Service the decision has been made to postpone Luck Reunion to Friday, March 17th. The safety of fans, performers, vendors and staff remains paramount…without that there is no Luck.”
All tickets purchased for the original date will be honored for the March 17 show. “Any minor changes to lineup will be announced as soon as possible,” the statement continued. “Same venue, same vendors, same Willie…and a little more sunshine. Hope to see you out at Luck on Friday.”
The show will also feature several special performances, including to tributes: A Tribute to Doug Sahm and the Texas Tornadoes, featuring Shawn Sahm and Friends; and a tribute to Leon Russell featuring Beau Bedford, Robert Ellis, and a special guest. Luck Reunion will also host a Black Opry Revue featuring Sug Daniels, Aaron Vance, Nikki Morgan, and Nicky Diamonds, as well as a BMI songwriters circle with John Baumann, Bella White and Poet Hawkins. A full lineup is below.
