LJT 2015 Must-Sees

fest_banner

Here are a few highlights we are looking forward to.  As always, this is a formidable and very comprehensive lineup that has something for every taste and fan.  There are country acts, rock acts, folk acts, legendary acts and new acts.  Sometimes back to back.  The list below is far from comprehensive, it just includes many of the sets we won’t be missing and felt were particularly notable.

(all times approximate)

MON APR 20

8:00PM–Gary P. Nunn–T-Bird’s--The venerable singer/songwriter kicks things off for 2015 with his road-tested and proven old school Texas country jams.  If you’re starting your LJT experience on Monday and going the entire week, God Bless you.  This is the first time we can recall music starting on Monday!  There’s a party comin’ on for sure.

TUE APR 21

8:00PM–Delbert McClinton–Bud Light Stage–The legendary Texas blues howler takes to the mainstage for a set that will take place after his son Clay and prior to a set from Casey Donahew Band.  Our money is on the veteran Delbert laying it down like nobody else can.  He’s still got it…the Lone Star Blues and the goods.

WED APR 22

2:00–Cody Canada and Mike McClure–Allsups Stage–This is where things start to get greasy.  This classic Red Dirt pair’s annual acoustic shows under the small tent back in LJT’s relative infancy were always a true highlight.  It’s very cool to see them doing it once again.  Get there for this one.  There will be songs, stories, surprises … Keep Reading

Haggard Undercover

Merle Haggard is one of the greatest American musicians of all time.  His influence is immense and legendary. The Texas/Red Dirt scene is littered with tributes to The Hag and on the occasion of his birthday we’ve compiled a few of the best.  Hit up the comments section and let us know others that you dig.

Ray’s of Hope Concert and Golf Tourney

Our good friend Wade Bowen and his Classic aren’t the only golf game in town, or the state, as it were.  Some folks in Gatesville have rounded up quite the cool line-up for a golf tournament fundraiser in a couple weeks. April 11-12.  A concert featuring some really cool acts such as full band performances from Adam Hood, Jason Eady and Thieving Birds will be alongside some acoustic performances from acts you don’t get to see very often anymore: Ryan Turner, Ryan James and Clayton Landua formerly of 6 Market Blvd.  The opportunity to raise some money for a good cause AND see some guys jam some tunes that you don’t get to see much anymore is too cool to pass up. We hope to see you in Gatesville on April 11-12.
