Frequently Asked Questions of Lucius Terwilliger
Q: Who the hell is Lucius Terwilliger?
A: Lucius Terwilliger is not a who, but a what. He is the Jethro in Jethro Tull, the Pink in Pink Floyd. Lucius Terwilliger is a band name, and a loose band at that. Organized by Ken Langford, the artist formerly known as “Hey You!”, I’m actually a music enthusiast and fan who has played guitar for 24 years. Over the years I have met a number of songwriters whose songs I have adopted to play for my own enjoyment, and occasionally the enjoyment of others. I also write my own songs.
Since I had always wanted to make a contribution to music, and have my musical vision heard, I put together the first Lucius Terwilliger CD. That experience increased my interest in songwriting, and after four years of concentrated effort, I felt I had enough material to put out another.
My day job is working as a video freelancer.
Q: Do you play out?
A: I have done so occasionally in the past. I have had tendonitis in my right arm, so I don’t play a lot, nor do I practice enough. My voice is also prone to strain, so the likelihood of a Lucius Terwilliger tour seems slim. There has only been one performance that approximated a "Lucius Terwilliger" concert. It was big fun!
Q: What is your instrument?
A: I play a Guild D-35 acoustic guitar, and a Martin 00016c acoustic guitar. I usually use medium weight John Pearse Phosphor Bronze or Martin Marquis Acoustic Bronze strings.
Q: Do you plan to make more recordings?
A: I have no specific plan for anything, actually. I loved doing both projects, and would consider more as the material becomes available.
