11/20 - Arlington Arts Council Presents Curtis Salgado

After making a splash at the Byrnes Performing Arts Center in 2018 and postponing due to Covid in 2020, Curtis Salgado returns this year for the 8th annual Legends of the Blues concert in the BPAC at Arlington High School. 

Born in Eugene, Oregon, Salgado was active in the Portland blues scene by his early 20s during the 1970s as co-leader of the Robert Cray Band. In 1977 he was discovered by John Belushi and he mentored Belushi on the blues for the movie The Blues Brothers. After decades of performances at blues festivals across the nation, his Alligator Records debut in 2012, Soul Shot was released to widespread critical acclaim. 

In 2016, The Beautiful Lowdown featured 11 original songs and Rough Cut in 2018 was a potent, stripped-down acoustic album with guitarist Alan Hager. 

The albums collectively earned Salgado multiple Blues Music Awards—for B.B. King Entertainer Of The Year, Soul Blues Album Of The Year, Song Of The Year and Soul Blues Male Artist Of The Year. 

According to Blues Revue, Salgado’s performances “start at excellent before segueing into goose bumps, ecstasy, and finally nirvana.” 

On his 2020 release, Damage Control, the hard-hitting songs just keep on coming, Salgado says.

Opening with local legends
The show opens with our local legends, Randy Norris and Jeff Nicely, 7:30 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 20, at Byrnes Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $25 at Brown Paper Tickets (fees apply), or with no fees at Flowers by George, 335 N. Olympic Ave. Tickets will be available at the door while supplies last. BPAC is located at 18821 Crown Ridge Blvd.
Thanks to financial support from a city of Arlington Lodging Tax Grant for Tourism, proceeds from the concert benefit the Arlington Arts Council general operating fund.
