Weldon Henson

Simple & True. Weldon Henson is to country music what an ice cold beer is on a“long, hard, hot, day” – refreshing. The first few notes out of his mouth and you know your witnessing the real deal. He’s a musician who can more than hold his own on the guitar and a songwriter who’s lived his lyrics.

Though he had a musical upbringing in Humble, Texas, Weldon’s music career didn’t start to take off until his Air Force days and after he received a guitar and a wise push from his late grandfather. Having been stationed everywhere from San Antonio to Abilene and from Utah to Korea, he’s called Austin home ever since being honorably discharged in 2006.

Henson’s shows are a throw-back to the vintage honky-tonk and Texas culture that brought your grandparents together combined with the rock ‘n roll attitude and approach of the more modern men of Texas country. Weldon’s hard-hitting, original country music demands as much from the dancers, who never seem to leave the floor, as from Weldon and his band. “The dancers truly become part of our show…I can’t tell you what it means to a musician to see folks running to the dance floor.” Weldon’s original and standard repertoire is one of the most extensive on the circuit making him a Texas honky-tonk and dancehall favorite. You’re in good hands with Henson. Prepare to swing, 2-step, waltz, and even polka to authentic honky tonk music.

Weldon performs every Tuesday at the world famous Broken Spoke in Austin, Texas.
