Yes, it's true: The Brooklyn Country Cantina is returning to Austin on Saturday, March 18, at Licha's Cantina (1306 E. 6th Street). This year, the Cantina will host 24 established and emerging Americana, roots, and progressive country artists, on two stages from noon to midnight providing a house-party style oasis amid the mayhem of SXSW.
Lilly Hiatt kicks off in the courtyard at high noon with a "cura-cruda” (hangover cure) breakfast of Tito's Bloody Marys, Sixpoint Micheladas, Nitro Cold Brew Coffee from Cuvée, and breakfast tacos by Licha's chef Daniel Brooks. Doors open at 11 am, so come get a comfy spot.
The rest of the 2017 artist line-up: The Secret Sisters, Andrew Combs, Scott H. Biram, Valley Queen, Sammy Brue, Lilly Hiatt, All Our Exes Live in Texas, Christopher Paul Stelling, Michaela Anne, Cat Clyde, the Go Rounds, the Brother Brothers, Cory Branan, Sarah Shook & the Disarmers, Cale Tyson, the Howlin' Brothers, Croy and the Boys, the Whiskey Gentry, Palomino Shakedown, Leo Rondeau, Elijah Ocean, the National Reserve, and Twain, plus a midnight DJ Set from Vinyl Ranch!
