Biography

Hank Wangford is a distinguished English country and western songwriter - and the stage name of Dr. Samuel Hutt, (b.1940). His music is notable for its humour and cheerful irony, and occasional excursions into biting political undercurrent.

It is said that a chance meeting with Gram Parsons (formerly a member of The Byrds), who played him the song “You’re Still on My Mind” (from the album Sweetheart of the Rodeo), led him to country music. Although his first recordings in the Hank Wangford guise were made with a group of leading session musicians, he now works with a group. The first band being the Hank Wangford Band; more lately Hank tours and plays as Hank Wangford & The Lost Cowboys.

There have been at least four incarnations of Hank Wangford Band, and a significant feature of the various lineups has been the number of high quality musicians who have appeared with him. For example, the second incarnation of the Hank Wangford Band included Amos Avaczyk-Daley (bass) (aka Gary Taylor), Milton Keynes alias Billy Three-Knees, a genuine Prawnee Indian (drums) (aka Howard Tibble), Brad Breath (lead - pronounced as in the metal - guitar) (aka Andy Roberts), Irma Cetas (vocalist) (aka Melanie Harrold), and Manly Footwear (pedal steel guitar) (aka B. J. Cole). This lineup broke up in 1984 after appearing at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe although Andy Roberts, B. J. Cole and Melanie Harrold have occasionally returned to play live dates with Hank.
