Austin Musicians


Last night we went to a fundraising concert for our school. This year is its tenth anniversary! Bob Schneider was great by himself, better than the time we saw him with his band on the big stage at the Nutty Brown Cafe–less generic sounding. I had never seen Alejandro Escovedo, even though I’ve heard  his performances announced on the local radio for years. He and his band were phenomenal. He has a violinist and a cellist along with a regular rock group and it gives it a wonderfully deep sound. Loved it.

So I thought I’d do a post listing a few of my favorite  musicians that are based in and around Austin. Here goes.
