The truth be told, Texas white blues may be most associated with Austin, but the scene actually percolated out of DFW. Doyle Bramhall was, along with the Vaughan brothers, et al., part of the Austin migration of the early '70s. And with his soul-shouter voice, deep-groove drumming and heartfelt, classically rooted songs he is more in the R&B tradition and one of those underappreciated Texas talents who, on the right night, can hit you right where both love and the pain of love lives. Henderson stepped into the Dallas scene in the '70s and remains a Freddie King acolyte--drenching his six-string finger flights with crackling energy and electricity--as well as a longtime local favorite. Two sides of blues in the night winds up being quite a main course.
