Hank Wangford and the Messages

September 18, 2023 | 8:00 pm


Hank Wangford, often referred to as the twisted Godfather of the British alternative country music scene, has been exploring the dark and troubled soul of Country music for over three decades. With a love for Connemara, he finds inspiration at his spiritual home, Rancho Wangford in Bunowen, where he writes his songs. Hank’s fascination with Country music stemmed from his friendship with Gram Parsons in the early 1970s, leading him to spread the word through groundbreaking TV series such as “HW’s A to Z of C&W” and “Big Big Country.”

Hank will be joined by The Messages, a group of talented Irish musicians from Donegal and Cavan. The Messages, comprising Fiona Maria Fitzpatrick, Seanan Brennan, and Denise Boyle, offer a delightful mix of original songs, traditional tunes, and a touch of old Irish romance.
