Terri Hendrix, Lloyd Maines to perform free concert Sept. 27
The Texas Heritage Music Foundation will present a free concert performance featuring award- winning Texas singer-songwriter Terri Hendrix and her musical partner Lloyd Maines at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 27, in the Floyd & Kathleen Cailloux Activities Center on the Schreiner University campus.
This concert is part of Texas Heritage Music Day—a day celebration of Jimmie Rodgers (the Father of Country Music) and in conjunction with the Texas Heritage Music Foundation's Silver Jubilee—activities commemorating 25 years of the foundation's commitment to preserving and perpetuating the traditions of Texas Music. Dr. Kathleen Hudson founded the non-profit Texas Heritage Music Foundation in 1987, out of her vision that stories and songs can transform the world and bring together culturally and ethnically diverse communities.
Texas Hill Country artist Terri Hendrix perpetuates this philosophy every time she steps in front of a microphone. Her authentic delivery of a unique brand of eclectic Americana is encompassed with witty, soulful, heart-stirring lyrics that take the listener on a journey of self-discovery and awareness. She has accumulated numerous awards locally (Best Singer-Songwriter, Best Folk Act” and Best New Band), she co-wrote a Grammy-winning instrumental (“Lil’ Jack Slade”) on the Dixie Chicks’ multi-platinum “Home” album and was inducted into South Texas Music Walk of Fame in Corpus Christi in 2010.
In addition, Hendrix has a new book, “Cry Till You Laugh: The Part That Ain’t Art.” The book is an honest and in-depth look into her rise as an independent artist featuring tales from the road, her unique business strategy and songwriting methods and inspirations. Her longtime musical partner, Lloyd Maines, is a Grammy award winning producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Bulverde. He first worked with Hendrix on her critically acclaimed album “Wilory Farm” and the two have been creating music together live and on record ever since. Both have been featured by Dr. Hudson at many events of THMF over the years and Hendrix is featured in Hudson's book, “Women in Texas Music: Stories and Songs.”
“I am so excited to showcase these two people I love with this free concert,” says Hudson. “Terri is a significant chapter of my book, and Lloyd wrote the introduction. They've both worked with me before at the Coffee House at Schreiner University. I am just thrilled to have them perform at this very special event.”
