Butch & Rory Hancock At The Old Church says
Spend the evening with this Texas music legend and his son, Rory.

Butch Hancock has been called “one of the finest songwriters of our time” and is acknowledged by his peers as one of the premier Texas singer-songwriters. His lyrics are ingenious, excelling in metaphor and irony and displaying a world-weary trait, just as he is a master of seeing the miracle in the ordinary. His lyric style has often been compared with that of Bob Dylan, and his songs have been sung by the likes of Emmylou Harris. Hancock has deliberately avoided satisfying the cravings of the markets, preferring to see his music as an end in itself, recording and releasing much of his music on his own and spending his energies on other things than a musical career. He is a talented photographer, with a gallery named “Lubbock or Leave it” in the 1980s and 1990s, and currently (Fall 2009) showing his photographs and drawings at Bluebird Gallery in Wimberley, Texas.

Fresh out of high school, Rory has been Butch's hot lead guitar player for the last three years. He graduated from the single string of his early days of mastering yoyo tricks to the six string of his guitar.
