Willie Nelson’s 2018 Luck Reunion Lineup

Willie Nelson knows a thing or two about throwing a good party. He’s been hosting his annual Fourth of July picnics in Texas on and off since 1973, and for the past several years he’s taken to holding another in his literal backyard: the Luck Reunion. This year’s event, taking place March 15th, includes Devon Gilfillian, Nikki Lane, Josh Ritter, and dozens more – led, of course, by Nelson and his Family Band.

Taking place each year during the second week of South by Southwest, Luck Reunion has become a sort of refuge from the sprawling music conference that overruns Austin each March. Located outside Spicewood in the Texas Hill Country, Luck Ranch is Nelson’s private home, with the live music happening in the town of Luck that was constructed as the set for his 1986 film Red Headed Stranger.

The 40-plus acts announced so far include a mix of artists from the world of country, Americana, and roots music, with several hailing from the Lone Star State and many more who have collaborated with Nelson over the years. Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats, Hiss Golden Messenger with Phil Cook, Kurt Vile, Joshua Hedley, Lily Hiatt, Aaron Lee Tasjan, Waxahatchee and Erika Wennerstrom of Heartless Bastards are among the many notable acts. Paul Cauthen and the Texas Gentlemen, who host a “Gents and Dames” jam session, also return from last year, as do Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real.

Even more so than the Fourth of July picnic, Luck Reunion keeps the communal hippie spirit alive of Nelson’s Seventies-era cosmic cowboy gatherings alive. Old friend Ray Wylie Hubbard hosts one of the many featuring activities of the Reunion, the Luck Chapel Sessions, which features performances in Nelson’s recording studio and this year includes John Doe, John Paul White, Kelly Willis, and Cody Canada. There will also be an Artists in the Round taking place with Caleb Caudle, Sam Lewis, Courtney Marie Andrews, and Kevin Kinney.

Luck Reunion: Helping after Harvey

Sunday, September 3rd, 2017
 
 http://luckreunion.com/luck-store
Our hearts go out to everyone affected by Hurricane Harvey…and as a staggering number of survivors begin their long road to recovery, we would like to do what we can for people and organizations close to our community.Beginning today, the Luck Store will donate 30% of Luck Reunion merch, and 15% of Ebbetts Field “Luck Hat” sales directly to non-profit organizations helping members of our Texas community rebuild and start to heal. If you have had your eye on any Luck Store item, please consider purchasing in this period of time to contribute to so many in need. Funds will be donated to two organizations benefitting hard-working Texans working around the clock to serve our beloved state:

The State of Texas Agricultural Relief Fund Assisting farmers and ranchers in rebuilding fences, restoring operations, and paying for overall agricultural disaster relief.
The Texas Workers Relief Fund Supporting the workers and their families in times of need, taking extra care to stabilize their wellbeing as they begin to recover from disaster.

Our friend Kevin Cocca aka The Hungry Outlaw knows that music and BBQ are good for the soul, so he and a few friends have worked up a plan to provide & serve BBQ to Hurricane Harvey impacted shelters around the Texas Gulf Coast region. If you would like to help, they are accepting donations through their PayPal donation link at hungryoutlaw.com. The money will go directly to providing slow smoked Texas BBQ to as many people as they can possibly feed. We are 100% non profit, and all proceeds go directly to support our efforts. The more money we can raise, the more people we can feed.
 
Lastly, we have set up a fund for a special Luck Family member who has been on the ground doing extremely important work for survivors. Ben Stephanou, our longtime artist catering master, is continuing his rescue mission – coming to the aid of so many Texans in need – despite his truck being destroyed as a result of his efforts. His catering business depends on this transportation, and it is important to us to help him rebuild as he selflessly presses on in his hands-on relief support. If you can, please visit luckreunion.com/helpben to contribute funds for a new truck to help continue to fuel Ben’s business.
Our fellow Texans are in our thoughts, and we know that together we will all do what we can to help the affected communities as they begin to heal.#luckfamily
