Community Weblog - [ Terri Hendrix ]

Humbled

  #
First off - a HUMUNGOUS thank you to everyone that took note of our last minute plea & showed up for the show.  What a great community to be part of! 

Every time that I consider getting out of the house concert business, I'm going to think back on the Terri Hendrix & Lloyd Maines concert.  I'd never seen them live before, so my expectations were about normal:  another night of good music.  Before the concert, I couldn't gush over them, other than the fact that Lloyd won a Grammy Award (YES a Grammy Award) for his production of the Dixie Chick's "Home".

Terri & Lloyd would have knocked my socks off IF I wasn't always barefoot at these concerts!  I felt like Bob Wills was in the house, like the New Leviathan Oriental Fox-Trot Orchestra stopped by and it was all peppered with a social consciousness & spirituality that I hope to aspire to.  To say nothing of the monster player that Lloyd is on any instrument he chooses to pick up.  Perhaps the most unforgettable part of the evening was the encore with Brendan, Maddie, Terri & Lloyd.   Maddie's scat was NOT that of a 16 year old and I just kept watching Lloyd signal Terri to let Brendan take another turn.   It was a fitting end to a magical evening.   It's all about expanding community.

This concert was definitely up there among my favorites, but poor Marc was working so hard on the sound board that I don't think he enjoyed it as much as I did.  We all owe him a huge round of applause for taking on sound for the master...

AND... a huge thanks to Laura & Chris WITHOUT WHOM we could never do this.  They make sure that our kitchen doesn't look like a bomb went off, they handle the CD sales for the artists and make our lives easier.  (this also extends to Joe & Kristen!!)

A Taste Of Texas

  #

There ARE good things that come out of Texas - and this month we'll show you how great Lone Star state music can be!  It’s always interesting to see how new artists sell here at FHC.  We’ve been getting regular calls from out of state and even have people flying in to COS to see Terri Hendrix here in September.  This is part of Terri’s CD release tour for "The Spiritual Kind".  We're surprised that this show isn't sold out yet - hopefully you're not mad at us for taking two months off?!

Terri Hendrix & Lloyd Maines

  #

Terri Hendrix will be through here in September and we’re ready to be back in business.  A friend who is a former artists ' agent who called the other day to ask if we REALLY had THE Lloyd Maines coming through here in September.  He’s a master of the steel string guitar and Maines won a Grammy for his production of the Dixie Chicks 2003 album, Home. This friend has been watching our schedule for some time and thought this was the biggest show we’ve had.   Check out Terri Hendrix’s music & reviews here and then get your check in the mail for September.

Terri Hendrix In September

  #
Do you know how sounds and names just bounce around on the fringes of your mind?  Terri Hendrix is an artist that keeps popping into my head, and we're going to be lucky enough to host her here at the house in September.  She brings with her steel guitar legend & grammy winning producer Lloyd Maines.  I'm not going to try and describe a show I haven't seen before, BUT take a look at the reviews here.  The quote from Rolling Stone was probably one of the best:  "Terri Hendrix entertained a crowd at the Newport Folk Festival with upbeat fare. Accompanied by veteran Texan producer/guitarist Lloyd Maines, Hendrix mixed sunny humor and sparkling melodies with striking instrumental and vocal chops, displaying a particularly keen talent for finger-picking and full-on scat singing."

Terri has a new CD coming out next month, hopefully we'll get a copy and try to get a description out to you.  You can take a listen to her music on her website - then get the check into us here!
