Rob Ellen on Townes Van Zandt favourite songwriter, the late great Tim Henderson
It was packed to the rafters an hour before the show every seat was filled by a songwriter or musician I admired it seemed, also radio dee jays and music writers were introduced to me in a continuous flow, the Texas fraternity had turned out en mass to pay homage to the memory of Tim Henderson, I was, it seemed by default, the only European representative and felt the weight of this honour firmly on my shoulders from the onset..
Tish Hinojosa, Butch Hancock, Ken Gaines, Libby Koch, Steve Brooks, Brian Kalinec, Chuck Hawthorne, Daniel Boling, Lazarus Nichols were among the star studded cast that performed that day and it seemed like everyone in the audience sang every word of every song and with so much love and passion I was moved to every emotion possible in the swirls and eddies of these great songs and these great performers.
Though from West Virginia, Tim was an adopted son of Texas, little known outside those 2 great states. Tim however was loved and revered above the throng particularly in Texas.
I feel profoundly that providence had lead me to this great encounter and into this great endeavour and to help me bring Tim Henderson's poetry, pathos & passion posthumously, beyond the plains and prairies and the grave to European ears and hearts.
