American Express Roots Music Series
In the midst of a bona fide revival, the Tex-Mex supergroup Texas Tornados lives on with originals Augie Meyers and Flaco Jimenez as vital as ever and the spirits of the late Freddy Fender and Doug Sahm presiding. On tour and on their new album Esta Bueno!, which came out earlier this year, Shawn Sahm steps to the front and “pulls off his dad's old tricks with a few of his own” (Austin Chronicle). They’re preceded on the bill by the timeless North Carolina stringband The Red Clay Ramblers, who play like “a fantasy roadhouse band from a vanished rural America. Bluegrass, New Orleans, classical folk and gospel sounds emerge in nutty profusion.” (NY Times)
