UncleLucius2015 (Austin Meade opens)
Tickets: $15 | Doors: 8 PM

South Austin’s Uncle Lucius is a dream, conjured in the minds of five sonic mercenaries, a clarion call to arms for true believers. It is the voice that shakes you from complacency, grabs you with both hands and implores: Get in the van!!! Like the city that brought them together, UL is a gumbo, with hints of Americana and folk juxtaposed with a slow-cooked roux that is steeped in classic rock n roll and the blues. The resulting flavor is familiar and unique, roots at its most refined, albeit with a gutbucket foundation. After eight years of touring across Texas and to both coasts and back, UL was named 2014’s Best New Band by the Texas Regional Radio Report. The band’s latest album, The Light, was released June 2015.

Margo Price (The Cerny Brothers open)
Tickets: $15 | Doors: 7 PM

First impressions matter. Especially on a debut album. Time and attention-strapped listeners size up an artist within a song or two, then move on or delve in further. Fortunately, it only takes Margo Price about twenty-eight seconds to convince you that you’re hearing the arrival of a singular new talent. Her voice has that alluring mix of vulnerability and resilience that was once the province of Loretta and Dolly. Price grew up in Aledo, Illinois, and after dropping out of college, she moved to Nashville in 2003. She soon met bass player – and future husband – Jeremy Ivey, and formed a band called Buffalo Clover. They self-released three records and built a local following, but it was personal tragedy that brought Price’s calling into even sharper focus. “I lost my firstborn son to a heart ailment,” Price says, “and I was really down and depressed. I was drinking too much. I was definitely lost. I did some things that I regret very much now that resulted in a brush with the law. Thank God I had my friends and family to keep me going. Coming through that, I thought, ‘I’m just going to write music that I want to hear.’ It was a big turning point.” After recording their recording sessions at Sun Studio, Price shopped the album to a number of Nashville labels, and reached another critical career moment when a friend brought up Third Man Records and told her, “You’re on Jack’s radar, he wants to hear the record.” Price says, “I sent it over, and it just felt like home. A good creative space to be involved in, and everyone is so down to earth. It was awesome when I met with Jack. He told me he thought my voice was a breath of fresh air, and that he loved the record.”

In 2000, Texas singer/songwriters Jack Ingram, Charlie Robison and Bruce Robison released an equally divided concert album recorded live at Gruene Hall. The three constituted a kind of South Central Texas version of the Flatlanders, the occasional trio of Joe Ely, Butch Hancock, and Jimmie Dale Gilmore. Bruce Robison, who lead things off with four songs, came off as the most sensitive and literate of the three. Charlie Robison, who took the lead on the middle four songs, was a crowd pleaser, filling his songs with humor and melodrama. Closing out the show, Jack Ingram rocked hard as the audience hoot ‘n’ hollered and sang along. This was the kind of live album that made you wish you were there, with a beer in your hand and another couple under your belt. Sixteen years later, the trio will return to the Gruene Hall stage for this very special Unleashed Live Reunion.

Current members include the Gray, B.B. Borden, Marcus Henderson, Pat Elwood and Rick Willis. Acclaimed lead guitarist and vocalist Chris Hicks recently rejoined the band after a two-year absence.

JD McPherson (The Bellfuries open)
TICKETS: $20 | DOOR: 7 PM

You could mistake JD McPherson for a revivalist, given how few other contemporary artists are likely to assert, as he boldly does, that “’Keep a Knockin’ by Little Richard is the best record ever made. It’s so insanely visceral, you feel like it’s going to explode your speakers. If I’m listening to that in the car, I find myself having to brake suddenly. I can listen to that and it makes me feel like I’m 20 feet tall. And the feeling of joy I get from that record is always going to be the real push behind trying to make music.” But in a very real sense, McPherson is much more a pioneer than roots resuscitator. He’s knocking at the door of something that arguably hasn’t yet been accomplished – a spirited, almost spiritual hybrid that brings the forgotten lessons from the earliest days of rock & roll into a future that has room for the modernities of studio technique and 21st century singer/songwriter idiosyncrasies that Richard Penniman would not recognize. Let the Good Times Roll, his second album, is a stranger, and more personal affair than its Fats Domino-redolent title might at first suggest, but the name isn’t exactly ironic, either. If you, too, brake for pleasure, you’ll screech to a halt at the enrapturing sound of these Good Times. His first album, 2012’s Signs & Signifiers, was hailed as “an utterly irresistible, slicked-back triumph” by Mojo and “a rockin’, bluesy, forward-thinking gold mine that subtly breaks the conventions of most vintage rock projects” by All Music Guide.

Zane has earned a reputation for releasing albums on which every song is worth listening to over and over, and “Texas Like That” is no exception to that rule. Zane is an anomaly in today’s country music, a modern-day “throwback” who is equal parts bar-room entertainer and introspective poet. What makes Zane Williams stand out is his songs… Like mini movies, they pull you in, tell you a story, make you laugh, and remind you of life’s deepest truths. Zane wrote all eleven songs on his latest album, Texas Like That, and while they cover a broad range of sonic and lyrical territory, his unique voice runs through them like a thread that ties them all together.

Radney Foster (Kyle Hutton opens)
TICKETS: $25 | DOORS: 8 PM

Singer/songwriter/producer Radney Foster has always been revered in the music community as a lyricist and a dry West Texas poet. One look at the folks who have covered his songs (everyone from Hootie and the Blowfish and the Pistoleros to the Dixie Chicks and Guy Clark) and you realize this guy is not easily categorized. As one half of the duo Foster and Lloyd, he recorded three groundbreaking albums, becoming one of the first acts to be played simultaneously on Country and College radio. When the duo split up in the late ‘80s, Foster recorded two solo albums that yielded a handful of hits and a reputation as one of Nashville’s best kept secrets. His songs, like “Nobody Wins” and “A Fine Line” had a lyrical edge and pop sensibilities that often challenged mainstream Country conventions. Throughout his solo career, folks like Emmylou Harris, Hootie and the Blowfish’s Darius Rucker and Dierks Bentley have jumped at the chance to work with him and lend vocal support to his projects – a further testament to Foster’s influence. Foster has served as host for the critically acclaimed CMT Crossroads, and has produced projects by Jack Ingram, Randy Rogers Band, Brandon Rhyder and others.

Robert Earl Keen and Lyle Lovett Tickets: $95 | Doors: 7 PM

*This is a limited seating concert with chairs set up on the dance floor. All seating will be first come, first serve.* A singer, composer and actor, Lyle Lovett has broadened the definition of American music in a career that spans 14 albums over three decades. Whether touring as a ‘Duo’ or with his ‘Acoustic Group’ or ‘The Large Band’, Lovett’s live performances show not only the breadth of this Texas legend’s deep talents, but also the diversity of his influences, making him one of the most compelling and captivating musicians in popular music. Since his self-titled debut in 1986, Lyle Lovett has evolved into one of music’s most vibrant and iconic performers.

Robert Earl Keen made a splash in Central Texas with his debut album in 1984, No Kinda Dancer. Starting off in the front room of the Hall, he rotated Sunday afternoon free shows with folks like Lyle Lovett and Nanci Griffith. He did so well that he soon landed a weekly gig, playing every Wednesday night for a while. REK built his crowd with hard work, good songs, great stories and an excellent stage presence that soon earned him a spot on the Hall’s main stage where he has since sold out show after show. In 2012, Robert Earl Keen was inducted into the Texas Heritage Songwriters Hall of Fame along with the late, great Van Zandt and his college buddy, Lyle Lovett.

The album quickly won the band a large national audience. Its lead single “Heaven” became a Top 20 pop hit and eventually won a Grammy Award. Los Lonely Boys solidified their success with 2006’s Sacred, which brought two more Grammy nominations, and 2008’s Forgiven, as well as the holiday-themed Christmas Spirit. The band continued to build its reputation as a singularly powerful live act. On the 2014 release, Revelation, the band collaborated with an eclectic cast of co-writers including alt-country icon Radney Foster, in-demand pop tunesmiths Matthew Gerrard and David Quiñones, Black-Eyed Peas collaborators George Pajon Jr. and Keith Harris, and Raul Pacheco of Ozomatli.

At the core of Fifteen, the third studio album from Green River Ordinance, is a simple message: hold fast to the things that are true. Much of the freedom found on Fifteen comes from the fact that the band recorded it on its own terms. In 2011 they set out to make the kind of music that was true to them, away from the demands and restrictions of commercial music. “In that world, everything is about the three minute pop hit,” explains Jenkins. “We wanted the freedom to dig in and create our own sound.” Their first experiment out of the gate validated their instincts: “Dancing Shoes” became a breakout hit. As a band that makes music on their own terms with a focus on the things that matter most, Green River Ordinance constantly challenges the borders of genre, walking the lines of Country, Rock, Pop and Folk. This sense of freedom has evolved over the group’s 15-year career, and radiates throughout their latest album, Fifteen, which was released in January 2016.

Tickets: $45 | Doors: 7 PM

The Indigo Girls (Emily Saliers and Amy Ray) released their sixteenth studio album, One Lost Day, in June 2015. Vast in its reach, but unified by the traveler’s sense of wonder, gratitude and empathy, One Lost Day moves like a centrifuge, pulling the listener close to linger in the small moment, then casting out onto sonic currents. These songs are rooted in tradition and inventive, too: nourished in dark soils, leafing and luminous. The Indigo Girls have spent thirty-five years performing together, produced fifteen albums (seven gold, four platinum and one double platinum), earned a Grammy and seven Grammy nominations, and have toured arenas, festivals and clubs the world over. It is rare to find musicians together so long, rarer still with such profound successes. Saliers and Ray live separate lives, take on independent projects, but share “the same set of values,” says Saliers. “We both embrace the struggle, share the same energy. We are sisters in our embrace of life. Observers.” That sort of artistic kinship is rare and cosmic. Here, then, are the stars of that labor, the next chapter.

Seth James 2014 (Drew Kennedy opens)
Tickets: $10 | Doors: 7 PM

Born in Fort Worth and raised in the ranch country of West Texas, Seth James has fashioned his own brand of music from a list of influences as diverse as it is long. Stemming from a tall family tree of musicians, Seth’s grandfather was a honky tonk piano player from the Texas clubs of the ’40s and ’50s, while his father carried his gold sparkle Slingerland drums all over the great Lone Star State. Seth’s father gave him his first guitar, a Gibson Southern Jumbo, along with a short lesson on how to play “Sultans Of Swing” by Dire Straits. After that day, Seth taught himself how to play by listening to Lighting Hopkins, Freddie King, and Credence Clearwater Revival. In 1996 Seth got his hands on his first Fender Stratocaster and discovered the raw power of the electric guitar. He has shared the stage with a various array of artist such as Percy Sledge, Little Feat, Delbert McClinton and Billy Joe Shaver. Seth released three albums as a solo artist including 2009’s critically acclaimed That Kind of Man before forming The Departed with longtime friend, Cody Canada in 2010. After three years and two albums, Seth decided step down as a band member of The Departed and return to his primary passion of playing the blues. With a fresh set of tunes and a great group of musicians, James continues to play for sold out rooms and has plans for a new album for he and the band, as well as another with his beautiful wife, Jessica Murray Walker.

Delbert McClinton (Shelley King opens)
Tickets: $45 | Doors: 7 PM

Delbert McClinton has been singing R&B, blues, rockabilly and country for 35 years, starting on the Texas honky-tonk circuit. This soulful, roadhouse-bred musician has enjoyed such distinctions as songwriter, singer, bandleader, and harp player. His name appears in the Book of Lists as one of the top 20 harp players in the world. McClinton’s voice still has the uncanny ability to transport the listener to a dusty Texas barroom that’s soaked in roadhouse blues. Such are his performances at Gruene Hall . . . this Texas musical treasure’s rockin’, bluesy style is all his own. And there’s a lot more good rockin’ to come from this enduring, original and ever-soulful artist.

The Wood Brothers (Ben Sollee opens)
Tickets: $20 | Doors: 7 PM

From early in their childhood in Boulder, CO, Chris and Oliver were steeped in American roots music. Oliver played guitar in cover bands before earning a spot in Tinsley Ellis’s touring act. At Ellis’s behest, Oliver began to sing and then founded King Johnson, a hard-touring group that would release six albums of blues-inflected R&B, funk and country. Chris, meanwhile, studied jazz bass at the New England Conservatory of Music, moved to New York City and formed Medeski Martin & Wood in the early ‘90s, which over the next two decades would become a cornerstone of contemporary jazz and abstract music. After pursuing separate musical careers for some 15 years, the brothers performed together at a show in North Carolina. Oliver sat in with MM&W following King Johnson’s opening set. Soon after, the pair recorded a batch of Oliver’s songs, channeling the shared musical heroes of their youth while seizing on their own individual strengths – Oliver’s classic songwriting, Chris’s forward-thinking musicianship.

Jerry Jeff Walker Tickets: $60 | Doors: 8 PM

This is a limited seating concert with chairs set up on the dance floor. All seating will be first come, first serve. Jerry Jeff has lived – and is living again – the troubadour’s life. Most folks know that story – how Jerry Jeff moved to Austin in the early ’70s and reinvented himself as a Lone Star country-rocker. He became, along with Willie Nelson and Asleep At The Wheel, one of the arbiters of the internationally famous Austin musical community. Since then, he has celebrated the music of peers such as Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt, and served as a fountainhead and inspiration to younger musicians such as Robert Earl Keen, Pat Green, Jack Ingram, Todd Snider and a moderately successful country tunesmith named Garth Brooks.

Cody Jinks (Opening Band - TBA)
Tickets: $25 | Doors: 7 PM

With his smooth baritone and lonesome, dark-hued country songs, Cody Jinks evokes classic styles from outlaw country to classic Southern rock. A native of Haltom City, Texas, Jinks spent the early part of his career fronting the Fort Worth-based thrash metal outfit Unchecked Aggression before returning to his country roots and recasting himself as a honky tonk balladeer in the late-2000s. Beginning with 2010’s Less Wise, Jinks issued a handful of independent releases, touring heavily with his backing band, the Tone Deaf Hippies. His first chart success came with 2015’s Adobe Sessions, which was named after the Adobe Room at Tornillo, Texas’ Sonic Ranch studio where it was recorded. The album peaked at number two on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart, bringing Jinks into wider mainstream exposure. Returning to Sonic Ranch, he recorded his follow-up, I’m Not the Devil, which jumped to number four on the Billboard Country Albums chart upon its release in August 2016.

Pat Green (Opening Band - TBA)
Tickets: $35 | Doors: 7 PM

After rising through Texas’ college-town and dancehall scene years ago, Pat Green earned himself major-label support in Nashville and became the poster child of Texas music for a whole generation of fans. His list of achievements includes over 2 million albums sold, three Grammy nominations and a sold out Houston Astrodome. But after releasing six albums in eight years, sending singles like “Wave on Wave” and “Let Me” up the charts, touring with powerhouses like Kenny Chesney and Keith Urban and dealing with accusations of “selling out,” the meat grinder of mainstream stardom proved to be too much. He was spent. Now, after breaking the cycle for a three-year recharge, Green is back in his comfort zone and playing by his own rules again. His is new independent album Home is his first set of originals in several years, and directly speaks to the hardcore fans that have been with him since the beginning. The album’s first single, “Girls From Texas,” is a prime example, and also features the first of Home’s stellar guest appearances. A sugary, grown-up lullaby that explains why Texan girls are just a little bit better than the rest, the track spent 10 weeks on top of the Texas Music chart. Green calls recording the song face-to-face with Lyle Lovett a highlight of the whole project.
