April 6, 2014 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

San Antonio-born Walt Wilkins has been called a genius, more than once, and a writer the caliber of John Steinbeck and his voice as comfortable as a pair of old blue jeans, and he is, and has, all of that. His crafting of story-songs, hard-edged vocals to sing them and a plaintive guitar have made him a fixture of the Texas music scene (and Nashville before that). He’s put his magical touch on recordings by new and veteran artists, too many to count. Is he near done? Hasn’t he done it all? Double hell no.
With The Mystiqueros, Wilkins has created something of a “Texas Hill Country super-group” that features five great singers and four great songwriters from the heart of the Lone Star State, all of whom have made their own records and are flush with recording credits.
Onstage and in the studio, Wilkins is joined by Bill Small (bass, percussion, acoustic guitar), John M. Greenberg (electric guitars), Ramon Rodriguez (drums, percussion) and Marcus Eldridge (electric guitars). Live performances around Texas are being likened to both outlaw country and classic rock bands, and they’re captured on DIAMONDS IN THE SUN on Tex-centric label Palo Duro Records.
Wilkins says this is the most fun he’s ever had playing music in a band in 30 years. He describes the music of The Mystiqueros (nicknamed mq5) as highly reminiscent of ’70s country rock from Texas and the West Coast and blues and soul that members grew up listening to and features high-quality songwriting and musicianship, rhythm, and vocal arrangements.

Josh Grider is a country songwriter/recording artist. His latest and greatest is the 4/29/14 release entitled 'Luck and Desire'. Josh’s confidence is unflappable. His mix of traditional and modern influences has combined to make a living, breathing collection of songs that range from ethereal and pensive, to light-hearted and downright funny. He makes no more apologies for his electronic loops than he does for his thoughtful lyrics. He proudly says, “I'm not ashamed of one thing on this record. I love traditional country music, but I doubt anybody will call this a traditional country album. I’ve got all the respect in the world for what was done, but I also believe that you've got to keep moving the ball forward. New stuff has got to keep happening. I'm not going to do it better than Haggard did it, so I'm not going to try and do that. I need to sound like me. My goal is to be greater than the sum of my influences. Not better than, but distinguishable from. Hopefully that’s what you’ll hear in Luck & Desire.”

Drew Kennedy is a singer / songwriter from New Braunfels, Texas. He's been making a living writing songs since 2004. Americana

“Drew Kennedy released an album this week that got the whole town talking. well they should be listening. His album, "Wide Listener" is ridiculously good.”

Powered by a fired up, and very knowledgeable music buyer, and an infusion of outstanding hill country musicians, the Luckenbach "TRAIN" is turning heads! Already in 2012 Luckenbach has hosted: Roger Creager, The Gourds, Billy Joe Shaver, Max Stalling, Micky and the Motorcars with Jason Eady, The Tejas Brothers, Hal Ketchum, Rosie Flores, Larry Joe Taylor, Deryl Dodd, Blacktop Gypsy, WC Clark and Ray Benson, Gary P. Nunn, Ruby Jane,  Doug Moreland, Thomas Michael Riley, Will Owen Gage, Charlie Robison and Robyn Ludwick, Chris Berardo, Clay McClinton... just to name a few! AND, still to come in 2012... HOLD ON!

WOW!

Tear 'em up, ABBEY!

The legendary Pickers Circles under the oak trees, or inside around the wood stove, depending on the weather, have likewise been GRACED with a stellar line-up of top-shelf hill country musicans... month after month...weekly hosts include hill country favorites: Kevin Higgins and Barbara Malteze from the Dust Devils, Bill Lewis, Jimmy Lee Jones, Clay McClinton, Maria Moss and Jon Hogan, Sol Patch, Owen Temple, Weldon Henson, Brigitte London, Ben Beckendorf, Bo Porter, BB Morse, the late, GREAT, Doug Davis... the list goes on and on! So, TREAT yourself to some MAGIC! Everybody's WELCOME! Your HEART, your SOUL will never forget!

Directions to Luckenbach from Fredericksburg:

Take Hwy 290 (Main St.) east for approximately 6 miles - toward Austin. Take a right on RR1376 (KOA Kampgrounds and Stagecoach Stop Shell Gas Station). Continue for 4.6 miles and take a right onto the Luckenbach Town Loop... just before the South Grape Creek Bridge.

HELPFUL HINTS:  When driving on RR 1376 DO NOT turn right onto the “Luckenbach-Cain City” Road – keep going. You will pass the large Feed Mill (Behrends Feed/”Uptown” Luckenbach) on your left. The next two rights after you pass Grapetown Road will be Luckenbach Town Loop. If you cross the South Grape Creek bridge you’ve gone too far.

Physical Address for GPS:

31 Places to Go This Summer

"Who needs Europe? The Texas Hill Country, west of Austin and north of San Antonio, might be the next best thing to crossing the Atlantic. The region is lush, colorful and, unlike much of the pancake-flat state, dotted with beautiful green hills that are evocative of Tuscany or the south of France. Moreover, the region is speckled with 22 wineries that buzz with food and music festivals year round. And towns like Fredericksburg offer a taste of the Old World, with German-style biergartens and schnitzelhauser. "

5 Eco-Friendly Wineries

Pedernales Cellars, Texas

Composting, recycling, and natural pest management is just the starting point for Pedernales Cellars. By building underground, this Texas Hill Country winery takes advantage of the area’s natural limestone to provide a cool and steady environment for case storage, slashing the facility’s energy consumption in half. Removal of invasive plant species and cedar overgrowth from the property has also led to the reemergence of previously lost seeps and springs. An added bonus? The tasting room features local and sustainable products like Bella Vista Ranch’s olive oils and t-shirts made from renewable bamboo fibers.
