Escovedo, who began his career in the punk group the Nuns and has performed with everyone from Ryan Adams to Bruce Springsteen, will perform at 3 p.m. Jan. 31 at the Ed Paschke Art Center, 5415 W. Higgins Ave.
After Escovedo's performance, the musician known as the "godfather of modern country" will sit down with Chicago musician Nicholas Tremulis to discuss his more than four decade-long career, organizers said.
Tremulis and Escovedo are long-time friends, organizers said.
The Words and Music series at the Ed Paschke Art Center is designed to give Tremulis an opportunity to craft "a live musical biography" by asking performers about "living, loving and surviving a life in music," organizers said.
Admission to the museum and the concert is free, but reservations are required.
