Terri Hendrix is a genuine Texas force of nature. Like other well-known troubadours from the Lone Star State, she's achieved her success by going her own way, ignoring genre boundaries and expectations in general. She's owned her own record label since releasing her first, live recording fifteen years ago. Onstage, she exudes the confidence and warmth that come from being her own woman.

Longtime first-call-for-the-stars steel player Lloyd Maines (known among some latter-day music fans as Natalie's father) is Hendrix's secret weapon, having collaborated with her since the beginning. He fleshes out her music like an orchestra, deepening the songs' texture and expanding their color spectrum. It almost seems as if Hendrix hears his accompaniment as she's writing the songs.

The duo played a Rhythm & Roots concert in a new venue for that established series. After the show, they sat in with Tucson's venerable Wayback Machine, who played for a dance party following the show. C. Elliott captured the vibe of the Boondocks performance.
