Hank Wangford

 

 

You cannot discuss country music in the UK without mentioning Hank Wangford.  Singer, songwriter, band leader, television presenter, activist—Hank has been at the centre of country music in the UK and beyond.  With his first releases on Cow Pie in 1980, Hank returns home with his new single “Perfect Day” from his 2020 CD release “HOLEY, HOLEY”.   The journey that began with a chance meeting of Gram Parsons in 1970 and has led Wangford to become, as he puts it on his website the “guilty conscience” and the “dark and troubled grubby soul” of country music. Hank has picked at the miserable underbelly of country music for twenty eight years, inspiring others like Billy Bragg, The The,  The Alabama Three and many others.  Now six years after recording an album of waltzes, Hank returns with the Lost Cowboys Band with completely original material.
