Field recording in Luckenbach Texas

Posted on Saturday, April 29th, 2006.


Originally a trading post and meeting place for the ranching folks in the area, Luckenbach also hosted shooting competitions and song fests. By the late 1960s, the general store, dance hall, and other buildings had fallen into disrepair. “Downtown Luckenbach” was put up for sale and subsequently purchased by a cohort of imaginative friends, who made this “living museum” a vibrant center of music and entertainment.
