The 4th annual Townes Van Zandt tribute concert was held last night at the Starlight Theatre in Terlingua, Texas.
Four years ago, John Hogan and Maria Moss had the bright idea of hosting a TVZ tribute. It’s turned into an annual event attracting performers and listeners from all over the Southwest.
Now hosted by Butch Hancock, who had a personal connection with Townes, it’s a night of celebration of Townes’ music.
This year’s show featured performances by Butch and Rory Hancock, J.P. Schwartz, Bonnie, Alex and Marti Whitmore, and many others.
The Starlight was packed- standing room only, so I left before the show was over.
Here’s how it looked to me.
