Terri Hendrix Performs Thursday Night at Momo’s
It all began for Terri Hendrix with a job tending some goats.
After working different odd jobs to pay for college and floundering about without direction, a woman named Marion Williamson – the person who hired her for the goat job on Wilory Farm – taught Hendrix some great finger picking. She encouraged the young musician to make some demo tapes and get her voice out there.
Hendrix toured as much as she could, paying her dues and sharing her music. It was tough work, but even after a label rejected her music, Hendrix created her own label, Willory Records, in 1996.
Williamson passed away a year later, but Hendrix kept her spirit alive by dedicating herself to making music more than ever, even naming her first full-length debut after Williamson’s home: Willory Farm (1998).
Hendrix’s ninth release, The Spiritual Kind (2007), is a sort of tribute to people like Williamson and many others who’ve supported her along her musical journey, and a nod to all the great things the future holds.
You can see Hendrix at an early show this Thursday night at 7 p.m. at Momo’s, 618 W. 6th St., just above Katz’s Deli.
