Hank Wangford + Brad Breath
Kingskerswell Parish Church, Newton Abbot.
If Daniel O'Donnell is the brightly scrubbed face of British country music then Hank Wangford is its guilty conscience, its dark and troubled grubby soul. Hank has picked at the miserable underbelly of country music for twenty eight years, inspiring others like Billy Bragg, The The, Alabama Three and other alt.country musicians.
Hank has joined up with his old musical buddy and saddlepal Brad Breath (aka Andy Roberts of Plainsong, Albion Band and sometime Bonzo). Together they tour the small halls that Hank loves so much - they have done nearly 300 of them so far. Misery and melody, raw emotion and open ribcages will continue to be Hank's trademark.
