  1. Saw your pictures and wondered what life in Terlingua was like as far as the day to day ways of living.
    People there seem to be on the side of life that the “hippies,” of the 60’s lived.
    Is that their way of living or what? And as far as the music, what title would you give it? It’s a little hard for someone such as myself to give it a name or where it might be coming from. Could you or some of the artist give me some idea as of where to place it?
    Thanks, a lot.

    1. Life in Teringua, for the most part, is “live and let live.” We’ve got an assortment of interesting and eccentric characters who live here and we make room for all.

      The music- we have LOTS of poets with acoustic guitars. They create in a vacuum, it seems to me. Totally unaffected by what’s popular elsewhere. There’s also a strong Mexican influence. The Starlight Theatre brings in an eclectic mix of acts from all over the world- jazz, rock, reggae, blues. There’s no one genre that’s essentially “Terlingua,” but strong vocals, great songs, and acoustic guitar are the norm.
