Red Headed Strangers

Austin Music Minute

Red Headed Strangers

Posted by on Oct 20, 2020

The track you heard on today’s Austin Music Minute may have sounded a bit familiar, and with good reason. It’s a wonderful tribute, from one red headed stranger to another – though they may not be strangers to you.

Walker Lukens has recorded a few of Willie Nelson’s best-known hits and a few deep cuts for his new release Red Headed Strangers, described by Lukens as a reimagining of Nelson’s work. And proceeds from the album sales benefit the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians (HAAM).

Join Walker Lukens for the release party at a limited capacity socially-distanced show, 6 p.m. Thursday October 22, at Central Machine Works, 4824 E. Cesar Chavez. The line-up features performances by Kalu James, Stiletto Feels and Sydney Wright.
