The music of TERRY ALLAN HALL has been described as a "tasty concoction of Good-time Folk-Rock and Country Gold, seasoned with a smidgeon of Jazz, a pinch each of Tin Pan Alley and Texana, and a healthy dollop of 'Down Home Blues, sang and played on the 6- and 12-string guitar and racked harmonica.

Biography

The music of TERRY ALLAN HALL has been described as a "tasty concoction of Good-time Folk-Rock and Country Gold, seasoned with a smidgeon of Jazz, a pinch each of Tin Pan Alley and Texas, and a healthy dollop of 'Down Home Blues', masterly served up through his expressive voice and confident command of the 6 and 12-string guitar, harmonica, banjo, mandolin, dobro and dulcimer".

TERRY ALLAN HALL has been a part of the entertainment scene of North Texas (and elsewhere) since 1975, performing both solo and/or with a succession of bands, the latest being "Too Hot For Snakes".

In addition to performing at restaurants, cafes, coffee-houses, festivals and private affairs, TERRY finds time to share his music at nursing homes, retirement centers, hospitals and other places in need of a bit of cheer.

He is also focusing much of his energies into educational children's presentations for libraries and schools (both public and private), tailoring his shows to the themes of Summer Reading Programs and other events for kids from pre-school age to teens. Terry thinks learning can be fun, and his variety of performances reflects lessons on history and ethics in a way kids thoroughly enjoy.

TERRY ALLAN HALL lives in New Fairview, TX, a tiny burg nestled so well between Rhome and Decatur that it can rarely be found, with his wife/best friend/soul-mate, Georgia Anne, their 2 children (actually, there's another, but he's already moved into his own domicile!), 4 dogs, 4 cats, several birds, 11 tortoises, and a vast number of "furry beasties".
