CRYSTAL BAY, Nev. — As a touring musician the past 40 years, rock legend Alejandro Escovedo has covered a lot of ground — in more ways than one.

He christened his career in San Francisco as a guitarist for the punk rock group The Nuns in the 1970s.

He tapped into his alt-country/Americana sound and transitioned into a solo artist in Austin in the ’80s.

He collaborated with the Ryan Adams-led outfit Whiskeytown in Nashville in the ’90s.
