“On the cutting edge of country and blues music”- Maverick Magazine

“Richard Henderson’s performance on lap steel is masterful”-

“Richard's dry grizzled tones reminding me of Levon Helm; which has to be a good thing." The Rocking Magpie, (UK)
Performing with a band or in various smaller formats at festivals and fairs and in bars, restaurants and clubs, we crisscross Ontario playing about 100 shows a year showcasing the acoustic lap steel guitar. The distinctive slide of the lap steel weaving through a mix of blues, roots, and vintage rock ’n’ roll brings an unusual musical twist that audiences really enjoy. The lap steel guitar brings songs to life in a way that other guitars can't. For festivals, blues, roots, and Americana venues, we perform original work and songs that may not be well known to the general public. Many of these are featured on my CD, "Seventh Day". For restaurants, bars and clubs, I also cover known artists from the '50s through the '70s.
