Hank Wangford – 3rd April 2012

HANK WANGFORD – With Brad Breath

Hank Wangford has been performing his special kind of Country music for nearly thirty years, inspiring the likes of Billy Bragg and The Alabama Three. He has also helped make the genre more popular with two groundbreaking TV series, ‘Big Big Country’ and ‘The A to Z of C&W,’ several BBC radio series, and two successful books ‘Lost Cowboys’ and ‘Hank Wangford Vol 3 The Middle Years’.

Back in the seventies Hank – as Dr Sam Hutt – was a rock ‘n roll doctor and many of his patients were from the world of rock music. The Grateful Dead, the Who and the Rolling Stones were some of his clients. It was Keith Richards who started the ball rolling when he sent the legendary Gram Parsons to see Doctor Sam. The pair became friends and started playing music together – creating ‘Hank Wangford’ in the process. Since then Hank has become internationally famous with his songs, fronting a series of hot country bands including The Lost Cowboys. His most recent album ‘Whistling in the Dark’ was considered by many to be his best to date.

As well as touring with his band- he also occasionally performs as a duo with Brad Breath -his old musical buddy and saddlepal aka Andy Roberts. The music is ‘tongue in cheek country music’ – his trademark cocktail of ‘misery, melody and raw emotion’ and any opportunity to experience Hank Wangford should not be missed! £13
