[10/26] Preview: Michael Salgado at Tejano Ranch

On Friday, October 26, Tejano Ranch welcomes Michael Salgado to the stage. Always a crowd pleaser, the raspy-voiced southpaw accordionist will be bringing his popular blend of Tejano and Norteño back to Austin, along with a little Country here and there.

Probably best known for his 1995 hit, “Cruz de Madera,” Salgado’s music appeals to Tejano and Norteño fans alike, much like one of his idols, Ramón Ayala. In fact, Salgado even pays homage to Ayala on his album, Homenaje A Mis Idolos, released earlier this year.

Lately, Salgado has tried his hand at country music, recording “Honky Tonks and Cantinas” for his Grammy-nominated 2011 album, No Vengo A Ver Si Puedo…Si Por Que Puedo Vengo. He continues this trend with his new single, “Buscando Amor,” just released this month, a Spanish-language cover of the Johnny Lee classic “Lookin’ For Love” rearranged as a cumbia.

Tejano Ranch is located at 7601 North Lamar, just south of Highway 183 in North Austin. The doors open at 8 p.m. The cover charge is $12 before 9 p.m, and $15 cover after 9 p.m. 18+ are welcome. Visit the event post on Facebook here.
