Free, and great with turkey legs

When you go in search of a new beer-can pinwheel at the Spring Pecan Street Festival, don’t overlook these two musical attractions.

Austin’s own Cerronato plays the melancholy yet toe-tappingly festive sounds of Colombian vallenato Saturday at 5:00 pm.

Superstar Michael Salgado doesn’t get to Austin all that often and, when he does, you don’t hear him gratis. He plays the piano, not button, accordion and plays it left-handed. His voice is instantly recognizable. It’s rare to get around town without hearing “Cruz de madera” at least once, floating out from the open window of somebody’s camioneta. He’ll be headlining on the latin stage at 6:30 pm on Sunday.

UPDATE: Cerronato is now supposed to take the stage at 8:00 pm and play until 8:50, after the UT Brazilian group and before the UT Afropop group.
