Living legend Flaco Jiménez will join Tex-Mex band Los Texmaniacs on Friday at the Bullock Texas State History Museum’s outdoor concert series “Music Under the Star.”
Grammy award winners Los Texmaniacs blend everything from conjunto roots music to Texas rock and R&B. At this special concert, they’ll feature Jiménez, who in 2014 received a Lifetime Achievement Grammy Award. Jiménez’ career has spanned six decades and continues to record and perform. In 2013, when he performed at the Pachanga Latino Music Festival in Austin, he told the Statesman’s Spanish-language weekly ¡Ahora Sí! that “I don’t read or write notes; I just play by ear.”
