Cody Canada & The Departed (Tyler & The Tribe opens)
Tickets: $20 | Doors: 8 PM

The latest incarnation of the Cody Canada-led group, The Departed, isn’t a reinvention of the group’s sound, or a reimagining of Canada’s musical perspective – it’s a reunion. Canada, Jeremy Plato, Chris Doege and Steve Littleton are reopening the doors to a sonic garage where sounds and stories that some thought were gone for good are now being unleashed onto an eager public after a few years of fruitful – even risky — artistic diversion. Following Seth James’ amicable exit earlier this year, Canada’s appreciation for the work he created as he fronted Cross Canadian Ragweed is intact. Unsurprisingly, fans are exuberantly responding to the inclusion of CCR classics such as “Alabama,” “Dimebag,” and “17” into set-lists of Departed shows. The refitted outfit is channeling the power chords and raw-bone ballads which vaulted Canada into the status as Red Dirt’s biggest name for so long.

Jenny Lewis (Nikki Lane opens)
Tickets: $29.50 | Doors: 7 PM

Jenny Lewis is one of the most celebrated and well-respected performers of her generation. Beginning her career in 1998 as the frontwoman of Rilo Kiley, the band rose from the burgeoning independent music community in Los Angeles to become one of the most dynamic and influential bands of the early 2000’s. By 2006, Lewis began her solo career with the album “Rabbit Fur Coat” and soon followed it up with 2008’s “Acid Tongue”, establishing herself as a songwriter moving beyond the confines of indie-rock into more timeless territory once occupied by artists like Laura Nyro and Emmylou Harris. She has collaborated with many other artists and bands, most notably with Elvis Costello, Ryan Adams, T. Bone Burnett and M. Ward. In the summer of 2010, Lewis formed the duo Jenny and Johnny with songwriter Johnathan Rice and released the album “I’m Having Fun Now.”

Uncle Lucius (Garrett Lebeau opens)
Tickets: $10 | Doors: 7 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. They are currently in preproduction for their next studio recording, with the album to be released in early 2015.

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.

Cory Morrow has been a consistent fixture on the Texas Country scene – establishing himself as a pioneer of the growth of the Lone Star State’s brand of Country music in the past decade. Now married and actively touring with a new band, with a renewed outlook on his life and career, Cory is set to release the latest volume of Red Dirt poetry in his musical tapestry. Listen to Cory Morrow’s music and you’ve got a pretty good idea of the man, because this is one singer who just can’t fake it. When Cory Morrow sings about the emotionally charged breakup of a relationship – you believe him. When he sings about night-life good timin’ – you trust that he’s been there. When he shares wisdom – you know he’s earned it. Because if any single word sums up a performer as multifaceted as Cory Morrow, it’s “authentic.”

Hal Ketchum is a carpenter who builds things made with wood and crafts songs made of silk. Hal moved to the Gruene area from upstate New York where he was born and bred. He stumbled onto Gruene Hall by accident and fell in love with the music scene. He scored his own Sunday afternoon show after recording a four song demo in his basement that contained the first songs that he ever wrote, including “The Preacher and Me”, which still stands strong today. He soon recorded his first album which triggered a quick ticket to fame with his first single, a song called “Small Town Saturday Night”, which hit number one in 1991. A subsequent string of hits soon followed and he was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 1994. After a four year hiatus from the music business due to health and personal problems, Hal is back and sounding better than ever.

The subdudes draw most of their inspiration from the sounds of their native New Orleans, blending blues, gospel, funk and R&B with their own harmony vocals; their sound is also notable for the band’s substitution of a tambourine player for a drummer. The band came together after backing artists such as Joni Mitchell and Roseanne Cash, and released its eponymous debut in 1989. Like the group’s subsequent albums, the subdudes featured a mix of covers and originals.

Jason Boland & The Stragglers (Opening Band - TBA)
TICKETS: $25 | DOORS: 7 PM

Jason Boland has a reputation of being a modern day country music outlaw. Both he and his band have been leaders in the Texas and Oklahoma music scene for many years. Though Jason is the primary songwriter and singer, this is no one-man show. Jason Boland & The Stragglers have always been true: that of self-reliance, determined professionalism and bringing the best music possible to fans. While at first glance Jason Boland & The Stragglers’ music may seem easy to stereotype as Texas or Country, intent listening makes it harder to categorize their music easily, revealing the influence of the land and life that got them to where they are. Boland knows he can’t shy away from questions about how to classify his music but simply states, “The Chinese don’t call it Chinese food, it’s just food. I’m just making music.”

Rosanne Cash (Opening Band - TBA)
Tickets: $49.50 | Doors: 8 PM

Encompassing country, rock, roots and pop influences, Rosanne Cash inherited a reverence for song and profound artistry – and an equal duty to find insights of her own. The oldest daughter of country music icon Johnny Cash and stepdaughter of June Carter Cash, she holds a lineage rooted in the very beginning of American country music, with its deep cultural and historical connections to the South. Over a three-decade career, she has responded to this heritage with 15 albums of extraordinary songs that have earned a Grammy Award and nominations for 12 more, the Americana Honors and Awards’ Album of the Year Award, and 21 top-40 hits, including 11 No. 1 singles. Singer and songwriter Rosanne Cash and her band’s new show celebrates the release of her much anticipated new album, The River and the Thread, a collection of new original songs that connect and re-connect Rosanne to the American South. Rosanne follows her acclaimed Grammy nominated and award winning album The List (2009) with her collaborator, musical director and husband, John Leventhal.

Jerry Jeff Walker TICKETS: $50 | DOORS: 8 PM

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.
