Product Description

Details

This recounting covers in colorful detail the years Becky Patterson's father Hondo Crouch owned the town in the '70's as well as its German-Texas history of intellectual creativity and Civil Wartime tragedy of the 1850's

Luckenbach, located in the heart of the Texas Hill Country was first established in 1849 by the German "Freethinker" immigrants. It consisted of twelve acres on Grape Creek, with one main building - like Women's Only Chili Bust, Return of the Mud Dauber, and Great World's Fairs. Known as the "Clown Prince" and Mayor of Luckenbach, population 3, he held "pickers circles" for musicians.

in 1973 his friend Jerry Jeff Walker came and lit the fire of outlaw music by recording Viva Terlingua! and two other albums in the primitive setting. Willie Nelson held five Fourth of July Picnics in the field. Hondo was the inspiration for the hit song "Let's Go to Luckenbach, Texas - Back to the Basics" the humble Venue is still a shrine for Texas music.
