Grammy winner Terri Hendrix, joined by Lloyd Maines, will bring her genre-jumping music and charismatic stage presence to the intimate Winter Wind setting on Sunday, October 15, 2017. The concert, held in The Depot, 200 S. Jones, begins at 7:00 pm. Tickets are $20.
A classically trained vocalist and deft multi-instrumentalist (guitar, mandolin and harmonica), Hendrix is a firm believer in the theory that “life’s too short for one genre,” dodging musical pigeonholes alongside legendary producer Lloyd Maines (guitar, dobro, pedal steel), in an eclectic style all her own.
The consummate triple threat, Hendrix excels as a songwriter, performer and recording artist. To date, she has released 14 albums on her own Wilory Records label and published a book, Cry Til You Laugh — The Part That Ain’t Art. She co-wrote the Grammy-winning song "Lil' Jack Slade" recorded by the Dixie Chicks.
Terri has always maintained a positive “live with passion” outlook on both life and art, spinning sorrow into joy and wringing wisdom from the blues with the poetic grace, engaging warmth and uplifting melodic flair that is as much of a Terri trademark as the way she’s always dodged genre pigeonholes by weaving folk, pop, country, blues and swinging jazz into an eclectic style all her own. Add to that her charismatic stage presence and reputation for delivering an energetic and feel-good live show, and it’s no wonder the “Terri Hendrix experience” has been embraced by three generations of loyal fans across the country and around the globe.
Be it solo, as a duo with Maines (who has toured with Hendrix almost exclusively now for going on two decades) or fronting a full band, Terri has entertained crowds everywhere from intimate listening rooms such as Chicago’s Old Town School of Folk Music and Austin’s Cactus Cafe to huge outdoor events like the Austin City Limits Music Festival and the Newport, Philadelphia and Kerrville Folk Festivals.
Known for her live shows and positive energy, the secret of Hendrix’s success comes down to her unfailingly warm and sincere connection with her grassroots fans, who follow her music faithfully.
