Brock Henderson is excited to make his theatre debut playing the steel guitar, the instrument that puts the ‘cry and moan’ into Hank’s music. A Knoxville native, Brock graduated from the UT Jazz program in ’95. He then lived in Brazil to embrace it’s musically rich culture. From ’97-’99 he toured as guitarist for the Ringling Brothers Circus while living on the train. Since 2000, Brock has taught guitar instruction at Pellissippi State and records and performs with local and touring acts on guitar and pedal steel. He is playing a 1950’s steel guitar purchased from the vintage music store The Parlor on Gay Street. Photo: Todd Reinerio
