The Croft
Hungerford
Berkshire
RG17 0HY

Hank Wangford, the grizzled godfather of British alt country music, is joined by bassists Kevin Foster (ex-Doll by Doll) and Anna ‘Spanner’ Robinson (ex-The Hallelujah Trails), who brings her heavenly harmonies to Hank’s songs.
It’s not all about misery: Hank knows that laughter, tears and music are the greatest healers. This is why he loves country music; a mix of dark thoughts and deeds, romance and fortune – good and bad – in virtually every song. Hank also recognises and casts a coolly ironic eye on the humour inherent in the mix – so much so that he has been nominated for the Edinburgh comedy prize!
It was through Keith Richards back in the ’70s that Hank – in his real-life role as Dr Sam Hutt, rock’n’roll doctor to the stars – met Gram Parsons (ex-member of The Byrds) and was converted to the cause of country music. Since then he has fronted a series of hot country bands and inspired others, including Billy Bragg. Hank tours extensively with the Lost Cowboys, and his latest album, Save Me The Waltz, celebrates the wild, wicked and wonderful world of the waltz

London Road

SL5 8DR

This new musical combines classic storytelling and a sweeping score, with the powerful, vibrant traditions of Irish dance and song, to create a modern musical event that is a thrilling adventure, a timeless romance and an historic epic.
Based on the real-life story of Grace O’Malley, The Pirate Queen tells of a compelling, inspirational woman; a heroine who led an extraordinary life as a pirate, chieftain and mother in 16th Century Ireland. Grace was a fiery, defiant figure with incredible resilience. She was able to unite the feuding clans of Ireland against Elizabeth’s attempt to conquer Ireland, which ultimately brought her to a tense face to face meeting with the Queen of England.
This highly romanticised telling of her life was a collaboration between Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg and the producers of the worldwide phenomenon Riverdance.
