Tejano Trail of Music Legends

The Trail of Tejano Music Legends is an Austin City Council led initiative to re-name 5 public east side spots to commemorate Austin’s Latino music legends from the 1940s and 50s. Many of these Legends lived in our neighborhood and their families laid down roots that anchor our community’s creative class in diverse ways that are difficult to describe. This ongoing effort is being led by the Austin Latino Music Association, Art in Public Places Program, the Parks and Recreation Department, families of The Legends, and the Mexican American community across Central Texas. Only 3 of the sites have been completed and their descriptions follow. We hope you will join us in encouraging future City Councils to set aside funds to complete this Trail.
