Alejandro Escovedo is a seminal figure in American music and one of the most acclaimed songwriters of his generation. He’s a recipient of the Americana Music Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award, and, as has been recently announced, he will be honored with the Townes Van Zandt Songwriter Award at next year’s Austin Music Awards. He’ll be only the third recipient of that honor in the Awards’ 37-year history, in a town that he helped put on the musical map.
Alejandro has released 11 solo albums and contributed to numerous others, as both band member and guest. His songs have been recorded by the likes of Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle, Ryan Adams, Cowboy Junkies, and Calexico, and he’s shared stages with everyone from Bruce Springsteen to John Prine to Mott The Hoople’s Ian Hunter.
Alejandro will be performing completely solo—just one of the many configurations in which he works—enabling fans down here to hear something akin to what early fans heard in the small clubs and holes in the wall in Austin and elsewhere when he was starting his solo career.
