Austin singer-songwriter Patty Griffin headlines a March 27 concert to kick off the spring "Long Live Music" series of socially distanced outdoor concerts on the Long Center Lawn.

Building on a series of socially distanced outdoor shows that began last fall, the Long Center and Luck Reunion have teamed up for four more "Long Live Music" concerts that launch on March 27 with a 7 p.m. show featuring renowned local singer-songwriters Patty Griffin and Carrie Rodriguez.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, March 4; prices have not yet been announced. As with last fall's series, tickets are sold as socially distanced squares that can accommodate up to four guests. Prices for a square last fall ranged from $300 general admission to $500 VIP. More details about procedures and health & wellness protocols are available on the Long Center website.

In addition to his Long Center show, Strings also is playing a March 26 streamed show from ACL Live, to benefit the SIMS Foundation. Tickets to the 8 p.m. livestream are $19.99 via nugs.net.
