Hank Wangford and Brad Breath

Saturday, 21 November. 7.30pm

Hank has joined up with his old musical buddy and saddlepal Brad Breath aka Andy Roberts. Together they have been touring round the village halls that Hank loves so much and doing the smaller gigs that are too small or low paid for the whole Lost Cowboys posse. Misery and melody, raw emotion and open ribcages continue to be their trademark whatever form they take.
